CNC Machining for Critical Components

We can be your one-stop shop for large projects that require parts to be fabricated from plate, welded and then machined prior to assembly

Our large capability for CNC Machining sets us apart from the competition. We often work on parts that need to be welded then machined then welded again to complete the part. The ability to do this all in one shop greatly reduces the time it takes to complete the part and eliminates the need for the part to be shipped back and forth to subcontractors.


Get Extensive CNC Machining Capability by Partnering with Anderson Dahlen

Precise Large Complex Component Machining

At Anderson Dahlen, our wide range of CNC machines, engineering expertise, and CAD software design capability makes sure you get exactly the part you need the first time with minimum waste and within your specified tolerances. This allows for very large components of complex shapes to be created easily in a timely manner to meet your schedule.

Experts in Stainless Steel CNC Machining

CNC machining can be used to manufacture products from a variety of materials, but stainless steel is particularly unforgiving. Our years of stainless steel fabrication (link to ss fab page) makes us uniquely qualified to manufacture one large custom complex part or hundreds of OEM parts.

Experienced Workforce

The technology built into todays CNC machines has led to workforce reductions and changes in workforce skills. Most of our workforce has been with us for over 15 years and are well experienced to maximize machine uptime and monitor for the high quality that Anderson Dahlen demands.


Anderson Dahlen CNC Machining capabilities offer the following advantages

  • CNC machines can be used continuously 247 if needed to support your rush project or for manufacturing hundreds of OEM parts
  • Our CNC machines can be programmed so that every manufactured product will be exactly the same for high quality and interchangeability of parts
  • By utilizing state of the art maintenance procedures and always keeping our CNC machines updated with software and hardware, our capabilities are never out of date
  • Training for our CNC machine operators is robust
  • Anderson Dahlens modern design software allows our engineers to often go directly from design to production, skipping the prototype stage needed by many companies
  • Our constant investment in modern CNC machines and overall manufacturing facility upgrades means you get the best possible value for your CNC machined parts

We have a full-service machine shop with several unique capabilities

long bed lathe

We have one of the largest CNC lathes in the upper Midwest. It was installed in 2012 and it gives us the ability to turn with precision parts that are up to 315.50? long and 51.0? in diameter. The machine features live tooling on the turret so we can drill and tap holes as well as mill slots.

Horizontal Milling Capabilities

Our horizontal milling capabilities stand out as well. We have three machines with the largest being able to handle parts that are up to:







We also have the only vertical turning lathe in Minnesota with live tooling. This gives us the flexibility to turn and mill using the same set-up on large rings and flanges. This is definitely a competitive advantage when turning large parts that require milling.
