Milling is one of the CNC machining services we offer. This process involves a rotating cutting tool that removes chips from the material when brought into contact with the work piece.
While it may sound very similar to drilling, the two are definitely not the same. Drilling is only suitable for making holes axially. A CNC mill can move laterally to remove material in that way.
There are different types of milling tools to either mill axially, laterally or both ways. Axial cutting needs teeth on the tip of the cutting head. Lateral cutting means that the teeth have to be perpendicular to the circular cutting head.
Fractory’s manufacturing partners offer state-of-the art machinery. This includes 5-axis milling equipment as well as live tooling possibilities. Driven tools, or live tooling, significantly reduce production times by making different operations possible without the need for a change of tools.
Creating precision components with an outstanding surface finish is possible with our CNC machining capabilities.
