Questions & Answers

CNC machining is a manufacturing technique for removing material. It uses sharp cutting tools, available in a variety of shapes and sizes, which are precisely controlled by a computer. CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control.

It is a versatile process that can be used for cutting, shaping, and drilling of parts. It can also be used for milling, turning, boring, grinding and much more. CNC machining is an automated process that eliminates the need for manual labor while increasing production rates.

The CNC machine controls all aspects of the manufacturing process which includes material selection, tool selection, tool path generation and finally part production. The computer uses CAD/CAM software to generate a 3D model of the desired part which then converts it into a series of G-code instructions that are used by the machine controller to create the desired product.

CNC milling is one of the most common machining processes. It is used to create parts from metal, plastic and other materials.

CNC milling machines are used in a variety of industries such as aerospace, automotive, medical, and more. They are also commonly used for prototyping and small-batch production. The process involves using a CNC milling machine to cut away material from a block of material (usually metal). The machine uses an end mill with cutting teeth on the periphery that rotate around the axis of rotation to cut away material from the workpiece.

The CNC milling machining process begins with the design of the object to be cut out and ends with the final product. The design is first converted into a 3D digital model using computer-aided design (CAD) software. This digital model is then used as input for the CNC milling machine which cuts out the desired shape from a block of material.

Compared with CNC turning and CNC Lathe, CNC milling, especially 5-axis milling can be used to create complex 3D shapes or to apply a machined surface or features to parts made both plastics and metals. The advantage of multi-axis milling machines makes CNC milling process versatile, as well as accurate and repeatable, for creating many different types of part features of complex geometries. Example include holes, curves, slots, angled shapes, and channels. Milling is also ideal for making tooling for pressure die casting and plastic injection molding.
