About Project

The wheel is machined from a 6061 aluminum forging. The billet was turned and milled to the specifications with tolerances of +/-0.1mm held at all critical dimensions. The wheel was then deburred and given a surface finish of Ra 0.8 on all machined surfaces.


  • Step 1: The CAD model was examined and transformed into a CNC-compatible format with the software AutoCAD.
  • Step 2: A most suitable type of CNC machine was chosen according to the complexity of the product design and the cost of the workpiece.
  • Step 3: Certain operations were configured and the G-codes were input on the machine. The workpiece was mounted on the machine as well.
  • Step 4: The workpiece got shaped and polished automatically. It would be inspected during and after the machining process for quality assurance.
