What is CNC Milling?

Milling is the process of machining using rotary cutters to remove material by advancing a cutter into a work piece. This may be done varying direction on one or several axes, cutter head speed, and pressure. Milling covers a wide variety of different operations and machines, on scales from small individual parts to large, heavy-duty gang milling operations. It is one of the most commonly used processes for machining custom parts to precise tolerances.

Current Equipment

Hurco VM30i CNC 3-Axis Vertical Endmill

Our CNC 3-Axis Vertical Endmill will fabricate shapes and parts that a conventional endmill will cut, but quickly, precisely, and repeatably in a controlled environment with flooded coolant for high-speed manufacturing.

Common Materials: Steel, stainless steel, Delrin, and aluminum

Hurco VM10UHSi CNC 5-Axis Vertical Endmill

Our CNC 5-Axis Endmill can create nearly any contoured feature and pushes the envelope for what is now manufacturable. This machining center allows for non-conventional shapes to be precisely fabricated where it was once impossible with a 3-axis machine.

Common Materials: Steel, stainless steel, Delrin, and aluminum
