Process: Milling, Low Volume

Overview

Milling machines can be conventional (manual) or computer numerically controlled (CNC). Milling involves the removal of material using a rotating mill tool. Types of milling machines range from vertical milling centres (VMC) to horizontal mills. Modern milling machines can have a variety of live tooling capabilities and multiple axis capable of producing simple and complex machined parts. We classify Low volume as batches of one off to 50 off.
