We provide custom tooling for automotive machine shops and Engine Rebuilders working on Cylinder Heads, Crankshafts, Connecting Rods, Blocks, Balancing & Blueprinting, and race Engine Porting.
Porting a car engine's cylinder head refers to fine-tuning the shapes of the ports that direct airflow to and from the cylinders. To improve its process for porting, a manufacturer of high-performance heads for racing engines will use a multitasking machine that is capable of milling and turning under CNC control.
Cylinder porting is one of the most difficult machining jobs. But it is especially important to the engine shops that build the 700-plus horsepower engines for NASCAR and other professional racing teams. Horsepower, torque and acceleration are the keys to winning a race; refining the art of porting can give a team the edge they need to win. It all begins with choosing the right machining tools to blue-print the engine block cylinders, heads and manifold to exacting standards.
When it comes to superior cylinder porting, the majority of high performance engine shops in the world have several things in common: Surfcam CAD/CAM software by Surfware, Inc., Westlake Village, CA.... and the precision cutting,boring and milling tools furnished by SFS Carbide Tool Company.
Complete turn-key CNC Cylinder head porting package. The powerful yet easy to use the CENTROID M400 CNC control will digitize your hand shaped Intake, Exhaust and combustion chambers in 5 axes. Easy export to Mastercam X via the ethernet LAN or USB port to create the toolpaths. Inverse time tool paths are generated for the smoothest fastest cut possible. Very little hand work is necessary after the machine has ported the head.
CNC Tools for Engine Builders matches just the right SFS Carbide Tipped tool for the job. A new casting is placed on the machine, the operator sets the Zero point, loads the cutting tool and the control machines the exact shape that was copied from the original hand shaped port. Rough and finish passes are automatically created. CNC Intake, Exhaust and Combustion Chambers are all created in this way.
In addition to porting heads this machine is also a fully featured 5 axis cnc machine that can be used for a multitude of other engine related machining tasks such as: Cylinder head O-ring grooves, piston work, intake manifold work, and anything requiring drilling, tapping, pocketing, contouring, grooving, boring, facing, Engraving and more! ....

Our employees desire to meet and exceed the quality and accuracy demanded of your precision cutting tool specs during the entire production life cycle. We in turn go out of our way to earn your repeat business on future projects. We encourage you to get a quick quote from us on stock purchases, or custom tool making jobs.
Factoid: CNC controllers are devices that control machines and processes. They range in capability from simple point-to-point linear control to highly complex algorithms that involve multiple axes of control. CNC controllers can be used to control various types of machine shop equipment. These include horizontal mills, vertical mills, lathes and turning centers, grinders, electro discharge machines (EDM), welding machines, and inspection machines. The number of axes controlled by CNC controllers can range anywhere from one to five, with some CNC controllers configured to control greater than six axes.
SFS Carbide is ready to meet your exact application needs. Our engineers are capable of working from existing designs or starting from scratch to develop truly specialized tools for industrial and commercial applications. Whatever the case, we'll work closely with you to determine the correct tools for your application. Give us a call at 1-989-777-3890, or use our quote request form.
