To learn more about CNC milling machines, contact your dealer. They will be able to offer answers to your questions on a wide range of issues that is related to CNC milling machines.
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.
Milling machines can be controlled through various different means. They can be operated manually. They can be digitally operated. They can be mechanically automated. They can even be operated through a computer system which is also known as computer numeric controlled (CNC).
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 can come in many different types. There are gun drilling machines, horizontal boring mills, five axis milling machines, and many more. There are several different manufacturers of these machines that include top brands such as: Heidenhain, Phoenix, TOS and VTEC just to name a few. If interested in purchasing a top of the line machine, make sure that the dealer offers service solutions to help with upkeep and maintenance of the machine in the early stages until someone from your company can learn how to do it. Well established dealers can offer rebuilding services of old CNC milling machines. This too can be a cost effective alternative to purchasing brand new.
