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.
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.
Basically, the CNC milling machine can operate completely on its own once the program has been written and downloaded to the machine. The operator will only have to get the machine set up with the right tools for the job and get the material into the proper position. From there, as they say, the rest is history. The machine will not stop until the complete program has been run through and the product is finished based upon what the program says. This will allow the operator to tend to other jobs or machines in the meantime.
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.
CNC milling machines usually use tools that have been standardized to an extent. While European manufacturers prefer SK tooling, those in the US prefer to use CAT tooling. The newer US versions include BT tooling, which due to its symmetrical design is supposed to be more stable at higher speeds. The hollow design of SK tooling gives it better gripping attributes and its stability at high speeds makes it the preferred choice for many users. While there is a lot of standardization in CNC milling machines, manual machines have little or no standard tools.
