CNC Precision Machining
Hill Manufacturing & Fabrication provides precision machining for various industries that demand accuracy, consistent results, tight tolerances, and complex shapes. Whether it is high volume, low volume, small margins of error, or parts needed in a hurry, we are your highest quality provider for precision machining services.
With over four decades of experience manufacturing precision parts, our highly skilled team uses the latest in CNC machining and other cutting-edge techniques to develop customized solutions to meet the needs our customers.
Our turnkey capabilities include making parts from a wide range of materials utilizing multi-axis capabilities to consistently delivery complex parts and sub-assemblies with tolerances of +/- .0005 across multiple industries.
CNC Turning Services
Turning parts on CNC turning centers allows for a wide range of complexities, sizes, and material types. CNC turning is a manufacturing process where the material is held in a chuck and rotated while a tool removes excess material to create a desired shape.
Hill offers the highest standard in CNC lathe machining and turning services. Our expert CNC programmers and machinists deliver accuracy, precision, and the highest quality in the industry and are ready to take on your lathe job.
- Single and Twin Spindle Lathes
- 20” Chuck with 24” Turning Radius
- Max 20 foot Turning Length
- Live Tooling and Y-Axis capability
Multi-Axis Milling Services
Our 3 and 4-axis machining-centers are ready to take on any challenge and deliver a level of precision and accuracy unmatched by our competitors.
3-Axis Vertical Milling
Hill’s 3-axis machining-center uses a cutting tool that moves along the X (Vertical), Y (Horizontal), and Z (Depth) axes to mill your part. Our 3-axis milling centers are best suited for milling basic contours, surfaces, and slots. They can also be used for drilling, tapping, reaming, and boring holes.
4-Axis Vertical Milling
Hill’s 4-axis machining-center executes the same functions as our 3-axis machining but with an added axis that allows for rotation around the Y-axis. This added feature on our horizontal mills allows for more complex shapes and sizes.
Hill’s horizontal mills are ideal for automation of multiple milling operations machining such as ports, angles, bores, and other complex multi-operation part features.
For over 100 years, highly skilled machinists have used conventional manual machines to deliver complex parts. Hill still utilizes these methods today. Internally we use these machines for tooling and fixtures, saving you time and money on delivery of your parts. However, when you need “one-off parts” for R & D, critical part repair or replacement, Hill’s team of experienced machinists can help.
Prototype machining is a process where a small number of parts are produced before a bigger batch is needed. Multiple industries use prototype machining for a variety of purposes including viewing a part after it is designed and testing it to see if it functions as intended.
Low-quantity and first-run prototype projects have been at the heart of what we do since we opened our doors over four decades ago. We specialize in taking a concept and making it a reality.
First and foremost, we know you want quality parts. Whether you are designing a new part or looking for production of proven parts, our team can help.
We review all your requirements, keep open communication throughout the process, provide full inspection and calibration records and even develop custom packaging to ensure we deliver the quality you expect.
Utilizing modern tools such as a dedicated Quality Lab & CMM along with the latest in ERP technology to manage workflow and scheduling, we strive to exceed customer expectations. As an ISO 9001:2015 certified shop, we have a culture of continuous improvement to ensure that we not only serve your needs today but will continue to do so for many years.
What does that mean for you? We have client quality ratings exceeding 99.4%.

CNC milling (Computer Numerical Control Machining) is a machining process which utilizes computerized controls and rotating cutting tools to remove material from the workpiece to produce a specific product or part. This process is suitable for machining a wide range of materials, such as metal, plastic, glass, and wood, and producing a variety of custom-designed parts and products.
3 axis machining involves a workpiece in a fixed position while the cutting tool operates along the X, Y, Z plane to cut away material. 3-axis machining is most suitable for parts that do require a lot of depth and detailing.
4-axis machining adds movement of the cutting tool and allowing rotation around the X axis. As a result, there are 4 axes X, Y, Z and A rotating around the X axis. The majority of 4 axis CNC machine tools allow the workpiece to rotate, which is called b-axis, so the machine can act as both milling machine and lathe.
Prototype machining is a process in which a small number of part(s) are produced before a larger number of parts are needed. Shops may do prototype machining for many reasons such as knowing what a part will look like when it is produced and testing the part to see if it functions as intended.
The conventional machining process involves a human operator that control machining tools such as milling, drilling, and boring machines. This process also includes lathes and other sharp cutting tools.
