What is a CNC Mill?

CNC machining refers to an area of machining in which a CNC mill is used. This CNC mill operates under numerical control. CNC stands for computer numerical control. These machines are programmed using a CNC machining language which is commonly called G-code. The G-code machine language communicates to the CNC machine about space coordinates through which the cutter or tool should pass through. The G-code language is responsible for controlling feed rates and other functions of the milling machine including spindle speed, tool changers, coolant, etc. CNC machining G-code may be programmed manually, but most machine shops typically use CAM software to read CAD software. A machining tool used to perform CNC milling is typically referred to as a milling machine or a CNC machining center.
