Most of these machining centers are ergonomically designed - Based on its ergonomic features, operators will not be forced to bend, crouch and contort your body during setup. Furthermore, the cutting tool is operating within an enclosed area is an effective preventative measure of avoiding unwanted accidents resulted from direct exposure of milling operations.
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.
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.
Wastage is not a big issue for CNC milling machines - As mentioned earlier, most CNC machines are capable of fabricating components without sacrificing precision and quality. Thus, using such CNC machines can effectively reduce one's overhead costs.
CNC milling machines can eliminate a lot of the manual labor for you. The CNC machine is controlled through a computer software program. The computer tells the machine exactly what to do by the way the software program is written. CNC machines are operated on several different axes and the software program has to written to accommodate the different axis. In other words, if the Z axis is left out in the software program, the machine will not move up and down. The computer software program is essentially the brain of the machine.
