Milling is a type of precision machining involving cutters to remove material at a desired depth, length and shape. Milling covers cutting, boring, threading, expansion of existing holes. Both level or inclined surfaces may be milled. Milling process produces flat, tapered, cylinder-shaped, etc. surfaces. Computer-assisted milling machine performs cutting operations of various complex shapes or shape cutting.
Bores of any diameter and type may be produced by automatic or manual boring, milling machines or manuals bores.
Benefits of milling:
- precision cutting;
- produces complex shapes;
- smooth resulting surface.
