A metal milling machine is a power tool used in the fabrication of industrial parts and sports equipment. It uses rotating cutters between two work clamps to shape the surface of a piece of metal. A computer numerical control (CNC) program guides the cutter along an axis in 3D space, allowing the operator to precisely create any shape he wants.
The metal milling machine can cut, shape, and form material. You can use it to create your own personal design on jewelry, or for simple projects like cutting a hole in wood.
Metal workers make use of this machine to create precision cuts in metal, plastic and wood. It can also be used for fabricating parts for plastic products like cars.
Metal milling machines are used by factories and manufacturing plants on a daily basis. These machines can be used to form, shape and prepare metal for assembly or use in other manufacturing processes.
The advantage of using metal milling is that it delivers precision holes with consistent diameters and shapes, accurate angles and radii, high quality, customized shapes including complex geometries not possible using other processes.
Metal milling machines are able to work with metal and wood materials. The machine can load the material from either above or below and adjust the depth.
