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.
Traditional milling methods are nearly obsolete as Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling machines have been continuously improving over period of time, and these machines have its important roles in fabricating valuable components in the extent of boosting one's profitability and productivity. Most components are manufactured via high-precision machining process including motor parts, car parts, engine parts and many more.
It has provide safer environment for milling operations - Advanced CNC milling machines are getting safer to use as these machining centers are well-designed to perform intricate milling operations repetitively over long period of time. In addition, hazardous milling operations are performed within an enclosed area where it is also located distantly from the operator. Furthermore, these machines have great ergonomic feature which operators are not forced to bend, crouch and contort your body when they are working with these machines. If the machine does not perform accordingly (or awkwardly), you can press a single "stop" button which halts the entire milling operations immediately.
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.
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.
