CNC Milling FAQ’s

What is CNC milling?

CNC milling, or computer numerical control milling, is the process of cutting away pieces from a material such as metal or plastic through the use of running computer programming. This technique is highly skilled and can be used to engineer parts with the highest degree of precision.

What is CNC milling used for?

CNC Milling can be used for producing parts which otherwise would be labour intensive and nigh on possible to achieve uniformity. The technology has helped lead development in numerous industries which otherwise would be impossible to achieve such as aerospace, health sector, renewable energy, oil and gas, automotive and leisure industry.

What is a 3 axis CNC machine?

A 3-axis CNC machine is capable of moving in three different axis simultaneously to mill material from a work piece. The axis are most commonly referred to as XYZ according to the Cartesian coordinate system, with the x-axis longitudinal, y-axis lateral and z-axis vertical.

What is a 5 axis CNC machine?

A 5-axis CNC machine is capable of moving in five different axis simultaneously to mill material from a work piece. A 5-axis machine can move on the same axes as a 3 axis machine but in addition, the CNC cutting tool can rotate along two further axes, referred to as A and B.

What are the two main types of milling operations?

Face Milling: used for either making a flat perpendicular cavity or cutting the flat surface of a material into the final piece. In this machining operation, only the tip of the cutter makes contact with the workpiece to produce the milled part.

Peripheral Milling: used to remove large amounts of material from workpieces by using the side of the milling cutter. This machining operation is more effective than face milling at removing larger quantities of material to produce milled part.
