1. Cost Efficient
80% of aspect and mechanical parts can be CNC milled within minutes or even seconds by optimizing the tool paths and using special cutting tools. With automation set up, CNC milling is super cost efficient for mass production comparing with additive manufacturing in most of the cases.
2. Materials & Finishes Options
Besides of fast turnaround time, various type and spec of plastic, metal block are available for milling, and different type of surface finishing is available for CNC parts, such as painting, anodizing and chroming. It’s great a combination of function and aspect.
3. Unlock Compexity
Because the cutting tool of a milling machine can approach the workpiece from several different angles, it is possible to create complex shapes CNC machines with more axis can create parts of greater complexity. If a CNC project demands an irregular shape, milling is often the best bet.
While precision machining is typically used for metals, 3ERP can also provide CNC milling services for plastic parts, creating parts that are generally more accurate than 3D printed parts.
Milling plastic is ideal for projects in which just a few pieces are needed for testing. Examples of such projects include car bumpers, coffee machines and external cases for medical devices. The process also suits low-volume orders of parts designed specifically for milling, as well as parts with a special plastics requirement that can’t be processed by other manufacturing methods like vacuum casting or injection molding.
CNC milling is a particular form of precision machining in which a cutter removes material by moving into the workpiece at an angle. The movement of the cutter is controlled by computer instructions, allowing for extreme precision and repeatability.
Milling is different to CNC turning, another popular CNC service in which a single-point cutting tool is used to cut the workpiece from block or bar materials while it is rotated at speed in a chuck. Unlike milling, CNC turning is generally used to create round or tubular shapes.
CNC milling can be used for the rapid manufacture of either prototypes or end-use parts.
