Large Part Machining
Mountain Machine Works is the one-stop shop bringing your product from prototype to production for established brands.
With our team, everything is handled under the same roof, so you can rely on the quality that comes with familiarity and dedication to the project. We handle everything from cradle to grave without outsourcing for top-quality machining.
Are you tired of sourcing prototypes at one shop just to switch to a production shop later in the process?
Our large part machining shop can machine parts up to 59” x 120” with tight tolerances of ± .005” and ± .01mm - It’s time to cut out the middle man and get the job done right the first time around.
Reducing Costs for Your Production Run
At Mountain Machine Works, we utilize cutting-edge tools and CNC machining to refine and fine-tune your first-run production.
Starting in the prototyping phase, we get to work providing a quality service that no other machining company can beat.
Because everything is handled in-house from cradle to grave, we are your one-stop solution for large part machining. Since we work with your product from conception to final run, we do what we can to maximize your ROI and reduce your costs every step of the way, without cutting corners.
Every step of the process is optimized for efficiency, accuracy, and quality. Our engineers work hard to reduce machining time, improve tool life, and eliminate material waste with every new run.
We believe in providing quality machining services with tight tolerances. We don’t just provide you with a solution, but we optimize that solution for cost efficiency and product quality, all the way back into the prototyping phase.
Providing A Full Machinability Review
During the initial prototyping stages, we provide a complete machinability review to help you optimize your machining processes and maximize cost efficiency within your design. Not only does this help fine-tune your production costs, but it can also address design elements within the product itself.
Our engineers begin by identifying any areas of the design and production run that may present any challenges during machining. We evaluate the product to ensure the part is designed for manufacturability while optimizing functionality and cost efficiency.
By assessing the tool path, materials and shape of the part, as well as coatings and machining parameters, we can optimize the machinability flow and help you shape a prototype into a finalized design.
At the end of the machinability review, we pull together a detailed report to outline our findings and recommendations for your team to review. These recommendations are clear and specific, suggesting ways to improve inefficiencies within the design and reduce production costs for your team.
Once the machinability review is approved, we can bring the part to the next stage in the prototyping or first-run production phase. Every step of the way, we work with your engineering department to determine the specifications and features necessary to the overall product.

Our CNC Machining Capabilities
At Mountain Machine Works, our specialty lies in production machining, and that includes large parts.
As many New England businesses know, few shops in the region can handle large part machining, requiring you to outsource the project. Not only does outsourcing delay your production time, but it can lead to confusion with the design as dozens of people work with the design without being familiar with it from the beginning. At Mountain Machine Works, we are dedicated to providing you a one-stop solution that allows you to keep your production line under one roof from cradle to grave.
The state-of-the-art machines in our Auburn, ME shop are capable of machining large parts with precision machining tolerances down to + .0005” and +.01mm.
There’s no such thing as a part that’s too complex or too large for our machines to handle. Our machines can handle products as large as 52” x 120”, leaving you with flexibility in product design. These machines work up to 50 Rockwell C materials, encompassing everything from titanium and molybedenum to plastics and stainless steel.
Don’t settle for anything less than the best. Talk to a representative at Mountain Machine Works today to see how we can help you bring your product to life.
Materials We Work With
Titanium is strong yet extremely lightweight. Because of its easy-to-clean and biocompatible properties, it is a popular metal for use in medical and healthcare applications.
Plastics are present in almost every industry today, replacing more expensive parts for with an affordable alternative.
An affordable and lightweight material, aluminum is also known for its resistance to corrosive materials. While not as durable and hard as steel or titanium, it is extremely easy to machine, making it a popular choice for quality parts.
Used in various industries, stainless steel is excellent for corrosion resistance, strength, and durability. This material is popular for demanding applications that need resistance to rust or acidic environments.
As a popular material for aerospace, energy, and electronics industries, this metal is known for its heat and corrosion resistance. It has a high tensile strength similar to steel, but it can be difficult to machine so it is not as widely available.
Ductile iron is a popular choice for its resistance to wear and tear. It is highly machinable, making it a popular choice. Providing the strength and durability of cast iron, this metal is treated with magnesium to make it more ductile and flexible.
This is a strong, durable material that can withstand a large amount of stress and wear during everyday use, while remaining machinable enough to use it for complex parts. Cast iron and ductile iron are materials that few shops handle because of its dustiness and difficult handling, however, Mountain Machine Works has processes in place to manage these problems, making these materials a breeze to work with.
Finishes We Provide
After machining, no coating or finishing is applied to the product. This is best for parts that will not be visible to the consumer.
This finish is used to improve the product’s resistance to corrosion and wear. In addition to creating a hard outer layer, it also gives the part an appealing dark color.
Perhaps the oldest form of finishing parts, heat treatment enhances the color and finish of the part, while improving its durability and wear resistance.
Powder coating can improve the appearance of the part by coating it in a fine powder that is typically colored, then hardening the coating. It improves durability and helps the part resist chipping with regular wear.
Popular as an automotive finish, bead blasting is a way to remove surface imperfections in a cost effective manner. It does not use any harmful chemicals, making it more environmentally friendly than other finishes.
This electrolysis process improves the parts resistance to wear and corrosive materials. It also improves the appearance of the part as a layer of nickel-phosphorous is transferred onto the part’s surface.
Type II Anodized
This finish comes in a range of colors and thicknesses. The paint creates a corrosion-resistant finish. Common colors available for anodization are clear, black, red, and blue, though other colors may be available upon request. Type III anodization is also typically available; this adds a layer of wear resistance to the milled parts in addition to the standard benefits of anodization.
