CDI Energy Products, a manufacturer of high-performance polymer products, expanded service capabilities at its Singapore location. With new CNC milling machinery, the Singapore team can perform metal machining with milling operations onsite. The 5-axis indexed milling equipment will be utilized to machine complex shapes. The additional 5-axis movement allows for machining angles and arcs of more than 300 engineering-grade plastics and high-performance polymers, as well as Super 13 Chrome & Inconel 1 metallic components.

CNC milling is a subtractive manufacturing process whereby the CNC machine is programmed to rapidly mill out complex parts from a block of raw material. CDI’s 5-axis CNC machines are equipped with various toolsets to maximize efficiency and production speed, while delivering the quality and reliability required of its high-performance products. The new equipment design delivers cutting rigidity coupled with maximum accuracy, both of which are essential for CDI’s critical components.
