There are existed as two distinctive types of milling machines - These machining centers are differentiated based on the positioning of the spindle motor (or orientation of the cutting tool). These machines are called horizontal milling machines because of the cutting tool is positioned and operating horizontally and vertical ones vice versa. Hence, it is common to see two types of these machining centers in most manufacturers - either in large or small manufacturers, as these machine tools are capable to perform milling operations in different directions.
The introduction of CNC milling machines have taken repetitive work out from the hands of humans and safely placed them in the confines of these computer controlled machines. Whether it is a small piece of jewelry, the engine of an automobile or a custom-made metal or wooden part of an airplane, it would surely have been touched by a CNC milling machine.
It is controlled by integrated software control with user-friendly interface - Like other CNC machining centers, advanced CNC milling machines require a specific program to perform high precision parts production operations. These machines usually have advanced control software with user-friendly interface along with touch screen features. Hence, it is getting common to see operators with minimal G-code programming skills are adept in operating CNC machining centers after completing several training sessions.
Almost all CNC milling machinery were controlled by the computer vertical mills having the ability of vertically moving the spindle alongside with Z-axis. With this added point of freedom, it allows the use of die-sinking, engraving functions so as 2.5D surfaces like relief sculptures. Once joined with the neither helping conical tools nor ball-nose cutters, it will surely improve the milling accuracy devoid from impacting the speed, giving the cost-efficient alternatives to the majority of flat-surfaced hand engraving works.
Traditional milling methods are nearly obsolete as Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling machines have been continuously improving over period of time, and these machines have its important roles in fabricating valuable components in the extent of boosting one's profitability and productivity. Most components are manufactured via high-precision machining process including motor parts, car parts, engine parts and many more.
