Milling machines are used to mill flat and form surfaces, revolution solids, gears and the like workpieces of metal and other materials by the milling cutter. The machining is performed by cutter rotation in the machine spindle and the workpiece fastened on the table performs the feed motion either arcs or cuts.
The number of coordinates that are handled by the NC defines milling machining kind
There are some kinds of mill machining by number of continuous axes along that can be simultaneously moved tool:
- Operations for 2/2.5-axes milling.
- Operations for 4-axes and 5-axes milling.
You can create all of this kind of operations at SprutCAM.
