Milling is the most common form of machining, a material removal process, which can create a variety of features on a part by cutting away the unwanted material. The milling process requires a milling machine, workpiece, fixture, and cutter. The workpiece is a piece of pre-shaped material that is secured to the fixture, which itself is attached to a platform inside the milling machine. The cutter is a cutting tool with sharp teeth that is also secured in the milling machine and rotates at high speeds. By feeding the workpiece into the rotating cutter, material is cut away from this workpiece in the form of small chips to create the desired shape. Milling is typically used to produce parts that are not axially symmetric and have many features, such as holes, slots, pockets, and even three dimensional surface contours. Parts that are fabricated completely through milling often include components that are used in limited quantities, perhaps for prototypes, such as custom designed fasteners or brackets. Another application of milling is the fabrication of tooling for other processes. For example, three-dimensional molds are typically milled. Milling is also commonly used as a secondary process to add or refine features on parts that were manufactured using a different process. Due to the high tolerances and surface finishes that milling can offer, it is ideal for adding precision features to a part whose basic shape has already been formed.
Alessi Manufacturing Corporation, is a superior CNC machining company, relies on Computer Numerical Control (CNC) for milling, threading, and drilling parts to exact customer specifications. CNC technology simplifies machining by reducing the number of steps that require significant human guidance. The result: curves and complex 3D structures are as easy to produce as straight lines.At Alessi Manufacturing Corporation, we utilize high-end CNC technology to machine with extreme precision to produce the highest quality machined parts for our customers. CNC milling uses a computer program written in a notation called G-code, which conforms to the EIA-274-D standard. CNC milling machines feature a rotating cylindrical cutter with multiple flutes, known as an endmill. The endmill is capable of traveling along multiple axes and is used for machining techniques such as slots, pockets, and profiles.
