Custom CNC Milling Service

CNC milling belongs to the machining process, it can be used to create complex 3D shapes or to apply a machined feature or surface to parts for both plastics and metals. The machinery is the most important element for the process of milling, Premium precision machine inc uses multi-axis milling machines includes the 3&4&5 axis that creates many different parts types and features of complex geometries. That means can be slots, angled shapes, holes, curves, circulars, and channels.

How Does CNC Milling Work?
How Does CNC Milling Work?

CNC milling is a certain type of CNC machining services, a machining process suitable for high accuracy and high tolerance parts in prototype and small to medium production runs. Some milling machines can achieve tolerances of up to and greater than +/- 0.005mm. The versatility of the milling process allows it to be used in a wide range of industries and for a variety of part features and designs, including slots, chamfers, threads, and pockets. The most common CNC milling operations include Face milling, Angular milling, Form milling, Plain milling.

CNC milling is often grouped by the number of axis, from 3 to 5 axis. Each axis is labeled using a specific letter. For instance, X and Y axis stands for the horizontal movement of the mill's workpiece. The Z-axis designates vertical movement and the W axis represents the diagonal movement across the vertical plane.

What is the difference between CNC milling and CNC lathe?
What is the difference between CNC milling and CNC lathe?

First of all, to understand the difference between CNC lathes and milling machines, simply said, the CNC lathe is to machining the round parts, milling machine is to machining plane parts, the difference between CNC turning and milling is which part actually moves – the machine itself or the raw material. CNC milling is part rotation, CNC milling is tool rotation, the part does not rotate.


Material Selection of CNC Milling Service

Material Selection of CNC Milling Service

CNC precision milling and machining are indeed common manufacturing processes, offering rapid production with minimal human input. Aluminum is most common in CNC milling processes due to its excellent machinability, workability and versatility. It is generally able to be machined quicker than other materials. Parts made from aluminum form a protective layer when exposed to the environment, which leads to extra strength and corrosion resistance. Except for aluminum, steel and stainless steel are engineered for premium machinability, steel is typically used for parts that require enhanced formability and stronger welds. The best applications of this material include commercial products, parts that require strong welds, gears and shafts, along with other high stress applications. Stainless steel can be heat treated and supply corrosion resistant properties and with a superior strength-to-weight ratio that is commonly used in the automotive and aerospace industry.

There are lots of options of materials for CNC milling technology, please see the brief introduction below and check which material you should choose for your application.
