What is a Milling Machine?

- Apr 26, 2018 -

A milling machine is used to cut and shape solid materials. A milling machine can be vertical or horizontal, based on the orientation of the spindle.  Both the workpiece and milling cutter move, controlled manually, mechanically or through a digital computer numerical control (CNC Milling Machine).

Milling machines generally use cutting fluid to wash away excess material and cool and lubricate the metal.  The waste material removed is called chips. The workpiece and cutting piece can be controlled down to .001 inches. Both simple and complex cuts are made with milling machines from keyway cutting to diesinking.
