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.
Some of the tasks that a milling machine can perform are: drilling, cutting, planing, keyway and slot cutting, diesinking, routing, rebating and so much more. If you truly want a machine that can do it all, especially when it comes to metal, then the milling machine is the perfect solution for you.
There are different types of milling such as contour milling, slot milling, face milling, etc that require special machines. There are two basic types of these mill machines, vertical and horizontal. The vertical machines consist of turret mills where the spindle does not move during cutting while the table itself can be moved in both perpendicular and parallel motions in relation to the axis of the spindle.
The milling machine is used for shaping metal and other materials. Not only can the milling machine drill a hole straight down like a drill press, the material can be placed into the side of the tool and allow for shaping of the flanks. With a milling machine, many different tasks can be performed.
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.
