CNC milling machines are also known as machining centers. These machines are computer controlled as with all CNC machines. They operate on the Z axis and are vertical mills that move vertically. They offer precision and speed where one aspect does not affect the other. These CNC milling machines offer a cost effective alternative to hand engraving, flat surface work.
CNC milling machines can come in many different types. There are gun drilling machines, horizontal boring mills, five axis milling machines, and many more. There are several different manufacturers of these machines that include top brands such as: Heidenhain, Phoenix, TOS and VTEC just to name a few. If interested in purchasing a top of the line machine, make sure that the dealer offers service solutions to help with upkeep and maintenance of the machine in the early stages until someone from your company can learn how to do it. Well established dealers can offer rebuilding services of old CNC milling machines. This too can be a cost effective alternative to purchasing brand new.
These machines have integrated control software - Basically, CNC milling machine operations are controlled by its own distinctive control software. Operators need to be proficiency in CAD and CAM programming skills in order to control the computerized machining centers when performing high precision milling operations. As compared with traditional milling machines (or manual machines), most CNC machining centers are able to perform high precision milling operations and to reduce unnecessary wastage.
