CNC MILLING INFORMATION

ALL CNC MILLING EQUIPMENT

Whitney invented the first milling machine in 1818.

Milling machines are very versatile. They are usually used to machine flat surfaces, but can also produce irregular surfaces. They can also be used to drill, bore, cut gears, and produce slots. A common machine is a vertical spindle machine with a swiveling head.

A milling machine removes metal by rotating a multi-toothed cutter that is fed into the moving workpiece. The spindle can be fed up and down with a quill feed lever on the head. The bed can also be fed manually in the x, y, and z axis. An axis is located at a desired position and then locked into position with gibb locks.

Most milling machines are equipped with power feed for one or more axes. Power feed is smoother than manual feed and, therefore, can produce a better surface finish. Power feed also reduces operator fatigue on long cuts. On some machines, the power feed is controlled by a forward reverse lever and a speed control knob.
