It is very important that you use CNC machining if you are manufacturing bike parts. These machines are very ideal for bike parts because of the level of accuracy and reliability that they offer. They also can handle many different types of materials that are commonly used on bikes such as steel and aluminum. CNC tools are available and many are very common including the CNC knee mill, a grinder or a router. Finally, they are pretty affordable and can be used in many different shops.
- CNC machines work on a variety of materials, including steel, aluminum and carbon fiber.
- CNC machines can be used to make seat clamps, chain tensioners, and many other bicycle parts.
- While CNC machines cost a lot, they save money on staffing and production costs.
“Quite simply, the capabilities of CNC machines have enabled the development of bicycles that were not possible decades ago.”
