If you think that it's not necessary to buy any machining centers at this moment - why not try outsourcing your CNC milling task now! See how it can boost your productivity and profitability of your business.
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.
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.
The most advanced of the milling cnc machines are the 5 axis machines that offer a wide range of capabilities. Horizontal milling machines are available and this is usually the lines of the 5 axis CNC milling machines. Basically, with the 5 axis machines, virtually any project can be done. One could sculpt the human head with ease with one of these machines.
Different from drill press, where in the work piece is held fixed and the drill is the one to move vertically to make a way to the material, milling too involves movements of the work piece adjacent to the rotating cutter, but it is capable of cutting to cut up the sides along with the tips. The movements of the work pieces and cutters are accurately controlled, usually via the precision ground slides along with the lead-screw or with analogous technology. Milling machines can be operated manually, by mechanical automation or by digital automation via the Computer Numerical Control or CNC.
