What is CNC Milling?
Definition: CNC Milling (computer numerical control) is a method in which a material is cut using a rotating tool.
Milling is the most commonly used process to create flat surfaces. A rotating mill tool, also know as a mill cutter, uses multiple cutting edges to cut the workpiece. Traditionally, the tool has been fixed and the workpiece has been movable. Today, both the tool and the component move simultaneously across a number of axes.
Our plastics machining facility is fully enabled with 3, 4, & 5 axis CNC mills, allowing for unmatched precision and flexibility. We offer a wide range of milling processes including drilling, tapping, boring, counterboring, planing, burnishing, reaming and countersinking.
Navigating both complex geometries and tight tolerances of up to ± 0.002 per inch of dimension, All Axis can machine a vast range of bespoke plastic parts at a maximum capacity of 1m x 500cm x 500cm for numerous commercial or industrial engineering applications.
Setting the standards in measurement and control technologies since 1948, Heidenhaim’s high precision CNC milling machines are trusted by industry, and highly valued by our engineers. Our Heidenhaim machines have the capacity to serve a variety of contracts runs from simple to complex, where intricate detail and speed of throughput are required.
All Axis’ conventional machining skills are equally valued by our customers, when prototypes, one-offs or small batches are required to exacting standards.
We supply an extensive range of polymers to match your application’s wear, strength, thermal, and chemical performance criteria. See our Materials page for information on a range of standard, engineering, and high performance polymer characteristics.
