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.
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.
Hobby CNC milling machines are even available for the small shops or the individual hobbyist. The milling machine is available in many different sizes and forms. From commercial grade to homemade milling machines, this is definitely a machine that is desired for the workshop.
At one time the machines were quite expensive to purchase and to operate. Now, because of the declination in the cost of computers and the availability of free operating systems, the CNC milling machines have dropped to more affordable prices. This has allowed many more shops to take advantage of this type of technology and has caused more competition in the machining industry. The shops now usually specialize in the type of work that they do.
CNC machining centers are also available in job shops - It is not necessary that a manufacturer has to machine components on their own. In most cases, they would outsource specific tasks - i.e. tasks which involved CNC milling process, to CNC service providers.
