There is a variety of different tools that can be used with this type of machinery. In the US, the most common CNC miller tooling is the CAT tooling; however, now a better alternative called BT tooling as raised the bar. BT tooling can be easily confused with CAT, so be careful.
The milling machine is used for shaping metal and other materials. Not only can the milling machine drill a hole straight down like a drill press, the material can be placed into the side of the tool and allow for shaping of the flanks. With a milling machine, many different tasks can be performed.
Fabricate complex components consistently without losing accuracy and precision - Perhaps your older machining centers have its own limitations and newer models are capable of performing complex milling operations based on CAM/CAD design. In other words, advanced CNC milling machines are able to perform multi-axis cutting and drilling operations - for instance, 4- and 5-axis machining centers; which means that these machines are capable to perform high detailed, fine and precision milling operations to fabricate components.
