Manufacturing and metal fabrication are diverse and versatile processes that need more than one functions and processes to produce the needed products and outputs that clients, companies, and businesses need.
Milling is considered to be one of the more important procedures, and it’s something that all manufacturers and metal fabrication companies need to be skilled at. The process and the goal of milling are simple – to produce specifically-made parts, components, and outputs with proper measurements and dimensions.
Milling and turning are two procedures in manufacturing that are always interchanged – but the thing to note is that milling is a process where the cutter is the one spinning; turning is the process where the workpiece is put on a rotator and is cut.
Whatever procedure you need, you can count on us here at Illinois Contract Manufacturing Experts to help you with it. But now, let us first discuss the process of milling.
The Evolution of Milling
Milling started out manually, just like how other processes were before the invention of computers. Back then, the first milling machines were operated manually where the operators and the machinists supervise the entire milling process.
With manual milling, they would need to set everything in the milling machine from the speed of the process or how the cutters need to spin, to the location, and the placement of the workpiece or the material to be worked on – and even the movement of the materials.
Manufacturers and metal fabrication companies found this to be fine until the time mass production was introduced. Because of this, innovators and engineers needed a kick and that’s where the advancements of manufacturing started.
As time went by, milling machines evolved – and they were one of the first few equipment and machinery that received CNC treatment. CNC or computer numerically-controlled machines are equipment that manufacturers and metal fabrication companies use to administer the procedures that clients need.
What we use here at Illinois Contract Manufacturing Experts are CNC milling machines and we are proud of the quality of products that we deliver to our clients. Akin to how manual milling machines worked, CNC milling machines also perform cutting and the removal of a certain material, just at a faster and a steadier rate.
Advanced Milling Techniques
With the best programmers in the industry, it’s clear that the products and the outputs that we provide are all state-of-the-art. All of the procedures and processes that we perform are done using advanced CNC milling machines that utilize advanced techniques and strategies.
We can help you from step one until the very end of the procedure; if you need help and assistance in terms of converting it to a file that CNC machines are able to read and translate – and if you need our assistance only in terms of cutting, milling, braking, and even finishing.
What Our CNC Milling Machines Can Help You With
So how can our CNC milling machines help you and your business to produce the output of the products that you need? Isn’t it that CNC milling is not necessary as it would involve some type of help from humans as well?
Unlike traditional milling where it only has 1 axis, our CNC milling machines can accommodate up to 4 to 5 axes that can speed the process up. Because of this, CNC milling machines are able to produce designs and products that manual milling machines can’t.
With faster production and a more dimensional output, there’s really nothing you would ask for!
If you are in need of output or a product that you need to replicate thousands of times, CNC milling might be what you need. In contrast to how manual and traditional milling worked, the products that CNC milling can produce can be the same more than a thousand times without any error or defect.
Since it’s computerized, the machine gets more and more familiar with the program or the software, making it better every after the production.
One of the things that we can definitely be proud of here at Illinois Contract Manufacturing Experts is the accuracy and the precision of the products and the outputs we deliver. The programmers we have that would transform and convert that CAD design to an extension that can be read by our CNC milling machines are experienced and are dedicated to whatever they do.
When you ask us to help you with CNC milling, you can expect that the price you would have to settle would be dramatically less than what you’d expect because our CNC milling procedures would require fewer operators and laborers to work on the project.
