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.
