Process: Milling, Medium Volume


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 Medium volume as batches of 50 off to 500 off.
