Metal Cutting Milling

Course Overview

Milling is performed with a rotating, multi-edge cutting
tool which performs programmed feed movements
against a workpiece in almost any direction.

Milling is mostly applied to generate flat faces, but with
the development of machines and software there are increasing
demands to produce other forms and surfaces.
