Machining Services

At Bramley Contract Machining, we use advanced OKUMA equipment to offer you a variety of CNC machining services including milling, turning and much more. Using our 4-axis CNC machining centres, CNC Lathes, our skilled machinists can make turned and milled parts using a wide range of metal, plastic and other materials.

What Is CNC Machining?

CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining is an advanced manufacturing process where raw material is removed with a variety of precision cutting tools to make a part or product. Advanced software is used to control the equipment according to the specification of your 3D design. Our team of engineers and machinists program the equipment to optimize cutting time, surface finish and final tolerance to meet your specifications.

Advantages Of CNC Machining

CNC machining is great to meet a range of your product development needs. Some of the benefits of precision machining:

  • Quick removal of large amounts of metal material
  • Highly accurate and repeatable
  • Suitable for many different kinds of substrates
  • Scalable volumes from one to 100,000
  • Low investment in tooling and preparation costs
  • Economical
  • Fast turnaround


CAD/CAM (computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing) refers to computer software which can be used for both designing a product and controlling the manufacturing process. It is the technology that provides the input to our various CNC machines to produce the final finished product.

It is a technology which has enjoyed an increase in popularity in recent years, as it is extremely efficient and can save thousands of man hours. By utilising CAD/CAM technology, we are able to accurately produce extremely intricate and technical designs, with relative ease.

At Bramley Contract Machining we can import most major file formats including Solidworks, ProEngineer, STEP, IGES and STL. Once received, they are entered into Edge CAM, a CAM system which creates reliable, accurate tool paths for the machine to follow, and exports these as a machine readable output. This process allows our workship to produce complex 3D parts; something that would not have been possible without the help of CAD/CAM.
