Milling Machines

A milling machine uses a horizontal arbor or vertical spindle to rotate a cutting tool above a horizontal table that moves a clamped and stationary workpiece using feed motion transmitted from the machine tool. The cutting tool shaves off and removes small sections of material from the surfaces of the workpiece until its final machined specifications are produced. For example, face milling creates a flat surface on the workpiece, periphery milling generates a primary surface parallel to the spindle rotation, and slot milling produces a slot or channel in the workpiece.

The Rise of Trochoidal Milling: More Accessible Than Ever

Heidenhain Trochoidal milling

Circular machining with low radial engagement and constant feed per tooth extends tool life by minimizing heat and vibration when machining extremely hard materials. CAM and control developers are making it easier for any size shop to add this technique to their capabilities.
