The advantages of CNC milling

1. Low production cost
By optimizing the tool path and using special cutting tools, 90% of the appearance and mechanical parts can be CNC milled in minutes or even seconds. Through automated settings, in most cases, CNC milling is extremely cost-effective in mass production compared to additive manufacturing.

2. Material and surface treatment options
In addition to the short turnaround time, various types and specifications of plastics and metallic blocks can be used for milling, and CNC milled parts could be subjected to different types of surface treatment, such as painting, anodizing and chrome plating. The perfect combination of function and aspect.

3. Unleash complexity
Since the cutting tool of the milling machine can approach the workpiece from several different angles, it is possible to create CNC parts with complex shapes, with more axes, and therefore more complex parts. If the CNC project requires irregular shapes, milling is usually the best choice.

Overview: What is CNC milling?

What's CNC milling?
CNC milling is a special form of precision machining in which the tool removes material by moving into the workpiece at an angle. The movement of the paper cutter is usually controlled by computer instructions, which has extremely high accuracy and repeatability.

Milling is different from CNC turning. The latter is definitely another popular CNC service in which single-point cutting tools are used to cut out the workpiece from the block or rod when the prevent or rod can be rotated at high speed in the chuck. Unlike milling, CNC turning is certainly often used to create circular or tubular designs.

CNC milling can be utilized to rapidly manufacture prototype or end-use parts

How CNC milling works
Like other machining processes, CNC milling begins with designers using CAD (computer-aided design) software to create digital parts. Then the file is converted into "G code", the CNC milling machine can recognize the file.

The CNC milling machine has a "worktable" and a workpiece fixing device to fix a large piece of materials (called a "workpiece") in place. The workbench may or may not move, depending on the style of the machine.

During CNC milling, the rapidly rotating cutting tool comes into contact with the workpiece, thereby trimming away the material. The tool moves according to the G code instruction to cut in the correct position until the part is completed. Some CNC milling machines use moving tables to create more cutting angles.

CNC rolling mills can cut through hard metals. This makes them more versatile than CNC milling devices, which are similar to 3-axis milling machines, but have a weaker ability to penetrate hard materials.

A CNC milling machine differs from a CNC lathe or turning center. In a CNC lathe or turning middle, the workpiece rotates instead of the cutting tool.

Different types of CNC grinding
CNC milling machines are usually defined by the number of their axes. More axes means they can move their equipment and/or workpieces in more ways, providing greater cutting flexibility and being able to manufacture more technical parts in less period.

3-axis: The standard CNC milling machine has 3 axes, allowing the spindle (and the connected cutting tool) to move along the X, Y, and Z axes. If the slicing device cannot reach the component area, the part must be removed and rotated manually.

4-axis: Some CNC milling devices add extra degrees of motion by rotating on a vertical axis. This provides greater flexibility and can create more complex parts.

5-axis: The most advanced type of CNC milling machine that is widely used is a 5-axis milling machine, which adds two additional examples of motion by increasing the rotation of the table and spindle. Parts usually do not need multiple settings, because the rolling mill can manipulate them to different positions.

CNC milling tool
CNC milling machines can be equipped with different knives/tools to achieve various kinds of cutting. These include end mills, face milling cutters, slab milling cutters, fly cutters, ball cutters, hollow cutters, roughing end mills, etc.
