Milling Metal Surfaces

The parts to be machined can have the most varied forms. This could be a complicating factor in the machining process. However, thanks to the milling machine and its tools and special devices, it is possible to machine virtually any number and surfaces of all types and formats. The machining operation performed through the milling machine is called milling.

What is milling

Milling is a machining process, done by milling machines and special tools called milling. The milling is the removal of excess metal or allowance of the surface of a piece in order to give it a desired shape and finish. In milling, removing the excess metal part is made by combining two movements, effected simultaneously. One of the movements is rotation of the tool, the milling tool. Another is the movement of the machine table.
