Precision is key when it comes to automotive parts; the complex designs of connecting rods, pistons and rings, blocks, cylinder heads, and other parts require super tight tolerances that are getting more and more difficult to be met by hand or with other machining processes outside of CNC.
Now more than ever, there’s a need for the precision and speed of a CNC in three-, four- and five-axis configurations as well as lathes.
A new level of 5-axis CNC machining performance and price point is found in the Centroid A590 5-axis Engine Shop machining center. Create billet blocks and heads and CNC port and blue print Diesel blocks and heads faster than ever before.

Centroid will be hosting a CNC seminar at the 2014 PRI Show located in meeting room #205 on Friday, December 12 at 10:00am at the Indiana Convention Center. The CNC seminar will discuss CNC cylinder head porting, CNC block machining, CNC parts creation, digitizing, and CAD/CAM.
Are you using Computer Numeric Controlled (CNC) equipment in your shop? According to our most recent Babcox Machine Shop Market Profile Survey, 12 percent of engine builders said they own a CNC machining center (a multi-purpose machine that can do surfacing, boring, milling, drilling, etc.). The survey also asked what other types of equipment our
