Milling is the process of removing material from a solid blank to form a final or semi-finished shape. The process is guided by your CAD file and optimized to create a physical copy of the digital design.
In CNC milling, the workpiece is fixed in a rigid vise or fixed fixture fixed on the worktable. The worktable both rotates and rotates, causing two shafts to move. The cutting tool mounted on the rotating spindle removes material, thereby generating various complex geometric shapes and part features on the workpiece.
The real advantage of a multi-axis milling machine is that the table and spindle move on many independent axes, providing not only accuracy and repeatability but also versatility.
