CNC Machining Materials in Communication Industry

Telecommunication industry is seen as the future and it is considered as an evolving enterprise for economies around the world. Many countries are spending their investment in mobile phone industry like America, China and India. These countries are trying their best to meet the consumer rising demand and this is possible by making the manufacturing processes optimised and automatic. This is done by using CNC machines and software for fabrication of parts.

Below let us discuss the materials that are mainly used in communication industry.


Most widely and traditionally used material used in communication network in wires and cables is copper. These are used because they provide high ductility, low hardness and it is a very good conductor. Its properties in terms on conductivity are very similar to silver and it is considered as a high grade and quality cable if it’s made from copper.


 Aluminium is also used in telecommunication industry in manufacturing of wires and cables because of its conductivity. It is also light in weight as compared to copper and significantly less costly. It is a sustainable approach to use aluminium instead of copper as it is availability is higher in nature than that of copper.


As we know telecommunication industry fabricates electronic devices in which semiconductors are used in bulk quantity. To join these semiconductors or to provide a linkage between them gold is used, as it is suitable for such applications.Because it is very costly and using small quantity of it would suffice for creating circuit board and miniature electronic devices. The best part of using Gold is that it doesn’t get oxidised and have good bonding to other metals.


The outer layer on telecommunications cables is known as the sheath and is designed to create a stable environment for the cable core. Lead was once used extensively as it has good corrosion resistance, adequate strength and flexibility and is easy to join. It has been replaced with polymers because lead suffers from fatigue failures, is heavy and is relatively expensive. Lead alloys containing antimony and tin were used to reduce fatigue failures.

Communication Equipment made by CNC Machine

Many companies offer fabrication facilities which is equipped with most developed and advance machines based on CNC. It allows machinists to perform both kinds of milling and lathe operations that is vertical and horizontal. This has increased importance of integrating machine parts and production capacity of a company to secure brand image and company’s reputation. In the modern competitive environment among manufacturing organizations right from the development department till the purchasing department, CNC machines contribute a lot.

CNC machining also play a vital role in communication industry by providing detailed electrical modules which aids rapid demand in industry. Telecommunication and electronic equipment is manufactured with excellence with the application of CNC machines in the process to optimize manufacturing practices. It gives the best results and allows the manufacturing of intricate and complex parts. These complex designs are easy to fabricate by the use of advanced and inventive processing expertise and equipment. Computer control lets manufacturer design and fabricate intricate and innovative parts with milling machines. These milling machines are aided by CNC processes which can fabricate high strength material like stainless steel, steel, brass, copper and aluminum in shortest span of time. With the evolution in telecom sector and communication industry, CNC processes require nonstop upgrading to help mobile industry to grow rapidly and move from 3G to 5G completely. To stay relevant and updated with the advancement in technology all the parts and equipment manufactured by CNC machines requires continues modifications.


To support the rapid evolution and change in communication and telecom industry worldwide, CNC machining plays a very important role. CNC machining accurately fabricates important machine components because all the telecommunication industries depend on high quality parts used in equipment and mobile towers. Low quality mostly leads to failure in equipment which causes huge losses for a company and interference in communication. Client’s demand to make their products and services with the help of CNC machine. In order to fabricate complex shapes, custom specifications with restricted tolerances, CNC machines are used.

.Companies as big as SIEMENS provides wide range of products and services as a sustenance for engineering and other mechanical processes.
