CNC milling is a technology using CNC milling machines, for the manufacturing of precise and complex parts for various industries. Davantech is an ISO9001:2015 certified company that provides CNC milling services to customers across different sectors all over the world. Industries served are automotive, aerospace, semi-medical, and electronics.
What is CNC Milling?
CNC milling, or computer numerical control milling, is a process that uses a computer-controlled machine to remove material from a workpiece. In other words, the machine follows a set of programmed instructions to create a precise shape or design. We use CNC milling to create simple as well as complex parts for machinery, tools, and other industrial applications.
The entire process to obtain a milled part involves several steps:
- Design: Designers create CAD (computer-aided design) models using specialized software.
- Programming: The CAD model is converted into a CNC program that the machine can understand.
- Setup: The operator clamps the workpiece securely onto the machine’s worktable, and the cutting tool is inserted into the spindle.
- Operation: The machine follows the programmed instructions to move the rotating cutting tool along the x, y, and z axes to remove material from the workpiece.
- Finishing: Once the milling operation is complete, the part may undergo additional finishing processes, such as polishing or coating, to improve its appearance or functionality.
CNC milling machines can operate in three, four, or five axes, depending on their capabilities. To clarify, the number of axes determines the complexity of the parts that can be produced. CNC milling is a highly precise and efficient manufacturing process. Therefore, it allows us to produce complex parts quickly and accurately.
CNC Milling Services at Davantech
At Davantech, we provide a range of CNC milling services to meet the needs of our customers. Our services include:
- 3-axis milling: This type of milling involves the movement of the cutting tool along three axes to create a precise shape or design.
- 4-axis milling: With 4-axis milling, the cutting tool can move along four axes to create more complex shapes and designs.
- High-speed milling: This type of milling involves the use of high-speed cutting tools and machines to produce parts quickly and efficiently.
All our milling services are carried out using brand new machinery with high accuracy up to 0.05mm standard. In addition, we maintain our machines regularly and calibrate them to ensure that they are in optimal working condition.
