Fully machined parts in competitive timescales for your prototypes and low-volume production
Best for models and prototypes that:
• Need exact production materials
• Require end-use components
• For use in demanding applications
• Require tight tolerances and high accuracy

Combining 3D printing with CNC
While 3D printing can produce parts involving a high level of fine detail and complex geometry, a CNC machine can handle the post-processing required to refine and give a superb surface finish to a final part.
Read how CNC Machining and SLA 3d printing complemented each other when we were tasked to produce detailed models of an autonomous, unmanned boat, here.
Impressed? Speak to a member of our team to find out how the two technologies can work together to enhance your prototype or model on 01462 682 661.
CNC machining is the best choice for prototyping, jigs and fixtures, form and fit testing, as well as creating functional parts for end-use applications.
Ogle employ seven CNC machines, which deliver accuracy, quality and flexibility for clients. Production-quality parts can be produced without the usual high costs associated with the manufacturing process.
“Ogle had come highly recommended to us by 3form Design and our experience with them on the Quantum luminaire model proved that the recommendation was fully justified and that quality is delivered consistently no matter what the project is – Ogle exceeded all our expectations.”
– John Telford, Lightning Design Manager at Abacus
Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machining is a subtractive manufacturing process that produces parts directly from a 3D digital model.
The process starts with a block of raw material; taking the original 3D CAD model data (ideally in IGS format) and creates a cutter path using the latest Hypermill CAD/CAM software. The high-speed milling tool follows the pre-determined cutter path in the CAM software. This removes the unwanted material to produce the finished part or product.
Full colour and texture finishes can be added to the model, including anodising as well as heat treatments. This attention-to-detail from the paint and finishing team at Ogle, results in stunning and visually accurate prototypes.
