A milling machine is a machine used for shaping metal and similar materials. CNC milling machines are some of the best you can find for a number of reasons. For example, the prices are low compared to other dealers of milling machines. This is because the CNC driving system and software is engineered and designed on site. The system is not bought out. Savings can be past on to the customer when systems are developed onsite. In addition, CNC milling machines are turn-key operations. Further, the machines are easy to use, even for people who have never used a milling machine in their life. Also, the tech support is customer oriented and available by email or phone. In addition to all that, customers receive free master software updates. This occurs for as long as the hardware supports it. Finally, stronger features are offered such as micro-stepping as opposed to stepping motion.
CNC Product Reviews & Testimonials
Here are just a few examples of what our satisfied customers are saying about our CNC Milling products. These are REAL PICS from REAL CUSTOMERS who have generously gone out of their way to take and send to us to show what they are machining with their CNC MASTERS Milling Machine.
CNC milling is a process in which you use a machine controlled by numbers in a computer to guide a cutting tool. The machine makes precision cuts on materials such as wood or steel to shape them or form them into the shape that you want. While sometimes it is better to use a cast for smelting steel, the only way to shape wood is to mill it. During CNC milling on a vertical mill, a vertical spindle (a rod that comes down from the top of the machine that is similar to a drill bit but can cut in all directions instead of just cutting downward) spins but otherwise remains stationary. A plate on the vertical milling machine that holds the raw piece of material moves beneath the spindle while it spins, shaving away the pieces of the material so that it makes the desired shape.
CNC milling is big business with many companies vying for the product. Companies that sell CNC milling machines, which are “computer numerically controlled”, offer a wide range of milling solutions to include lathes, milling machines, and more. The key is that any company needing CNC milling machinery should purchase from a reputable company, one that has great customer support, excellent prices, and outstanding guarantees. Along with the machinery itself, these companies usually sell the software programs that work with each unit. Regardless of the project at hand, every piece of machinery sold offers top control and appropriate software for high-end operation. Most people needing milling equipment will turn to the CNC technology, knowing they are getting the very best in precision cutting and shaping. Having the ability to generate professional results without the high cost of hiring a professional is a key feature contributing to CNC milling’s popularity.
With a huge array of machine styles, sizes and formats, the CNC milling machines are a sought after commodity. Manufacturers of all sizes, artisans and craftspeople, metalworking and woodworking enthusiasts can all find a CNC milling machine to meet their needs and their budgets.
Fully compatible and operational with the Windows XP or Vista software, the flexibility of CNC milling machines can be as simple as a “plug and play” technology. All of the machines can also be programmed to function with complex CAD software programs for completely customized milling requirements.
In addition to the numerous models of machinery, the company also makes a large assortment of accessories available for their equipment, including a hand held joystick, which can jog axes automatically.
CNC milling is also known as computer numerical control milling, and it is the most common form of CNC. CNC mills are capable of performing functions of drilling and turning. CNC mills are classified based upon the number of axes that they possess. Axes are labeled as x and y for their horizontal movement and z for their vertical movement. A manual standard light-duty mill is usually assumed to have four axes: table x, table y, table z, and milling head z. The number of axes that a milling machine has is a common subject during casual “shop talk” and it is usually interpreted in different ways. CNC milling machines are typically programmed using a set of commands referred to as G-codes. G-codes represent specific and exact CNC functions in alphanumeric format.
