Milling is process that uses rotating cutters to remove material, but the difference lies in how the equipment works. A milling machine features a moveable table on which the material is mounted. In most milling machines, the cutting tools are stationary and the table moves the material so that the desired cuts can be made. Other types of milling machines feature both table and cutting tools as moveable implements. Some of the operations a milling machine is capable of performing include planing, cutting, rebating, routing, die-sinking and other complex tool-paths, making the milling machine one of the more flexible pieces of equipment in a machine shop. Milling machines offer versatile operations and maintenance is low-cost; since they generally have a long and glitch-free life, the investment return is high. There are four types of milling machines—hand milling machines, plain milling machines, universal milling machines, and omniversal milling machines—and they feature either horizontal cutters or cutters installed on a vertical axis.. As expected, the universal milling machine allows for both vertical and horizontal mounted cutting tools, making it one of the most complex and flexible milling machines available.

CNC technology includes machining tools such as lathes, multi-axis spindles, wire electrical discharge machines and milling machines, where the functions formerly performed by human operators are now performed by a computer control module. The professionals associated with this skill use CNC machines (3-Axis, 4-5 Axis or Multi-Axis machines) to cut and shape precision products as mentioned above.

Setup tooling

Although setup tooling is mainly software, custom jig tooling is often required for workholding.

Advantages

Milling has several advantages over other manufacturing processes. It is cost effective for short runs. Complex shapes and high dimensional tolerances are possible. Smooth finishes can be achieved. CNC milling can produce almost any 2D or 3D shape provided that the rotating cutting tools can reach the material to be removed. Examples of parts include engine components, mold tooling, complex mechanisms, enclosures, etc.

Materials

This machining process can handle most rigid materials including most metals: Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Copper, Steel, Brass, Titanium, Sterling Silver, Bronze, etc.; hard plastics and other materials: Nylon, Acetal, Polycarbonate, Polystyrene, Acrylic, Fiberglass, Carbon fiber, PTFE, ABS, PVC, etc.

Cost Reduction

Cost reduction options include reducing the amount of material removed, limiting complexity, avoiding intricate features and making shapes that are easy to hold.
