Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machining uses software to program the desired movement of various cutting tools in a CNC machine. Programmers input the types of tools, cut angles, speeds and feeds using G-Code in their programming software. Based on the selected tools and parameters, machinists load the CNC machine with the appropriate tools and prepare the material to be machined with various fixtures or work holdings. When the program is transferred from the workstation to the CNC machine, much like a robot, the machine then begins the cutting and shaping of the material. However, there are many variables involved including program quality (machining approach, speeds, feeds), tool selection (the right tools for the material and parameters), workholding selection and preparation, machinist experience and CNC machine capabilities (size, speeds, consistency) which determine successful optimization of the fabrication process.
At RPI we take all variables into consideration and document our results to ensure we continue to improve on our machining consistency (quality) and efficiency (speed & repeatability).
We serve the aerospace, defense, energy, medical, packaging and communication industries among others.
With 25 years of various machining and supervisory roles in leading aerospace companies, Luis Ricaurte established Ricaurte Precision in 1986. After 30 years of steady growth, Hernan Ricaurte joined the company in 2016 bringing his 20+ years of operational and business development experience from the healthcare and medical device industries. Today, Ricaurte Precision Inc. is aggressively pursuing continuous improvement initiatives and investments in technology to ensure the highest quality and most cost-effective fabrication processes in the industry.
