What is CNC Milling?

The Basics Of CNC Mills

CNC mills are automated cutting machines using a rotating spindle-head to cut away unwanted material. CNC milling machines come in a variety of sizes and different axis configurations. They are mainly utilized to cut harder metals but can work with workpiece materials ranging from plastic and aluminum to stainless steel and titanium.

How CNC Milling Works

CNC mills excel at profile cutting harder materials. Like all CNC machines, a CNC mill is controlled with G-Code created through CAM software. The Gg-Code instructs the machine where to move the tool head, how fast to spin the tool, how deep to cut, how to move the workpiece, and other factors relating to speed, feed rate, and coordination. The G-Code complexity depends on how many axes the milling machine has.

Mills can still be used for profile cutting of softer materials, but are not as cost-effective for that use as CNC routers. The main difference between these machines is that with a CNC router the workpiece remains stationary while the router cutting head is directed around the piece, while a CNC mill may move both tool head and workpiece. CNC mills are mainly used in industrial manufacturing, while CNC routing is more common for lower output manufacturing like woodworking.

Applications of CNC Milling

Rapid Tooling

Because CNC can be applied to virtually any material, it is perfect for rapid tooling, i.e., creating fixtures or molds.

Rapid Prototyping

The range of materials available, low cost per unit, and speed of production makes CNC a great option for prototyping.

End-Use Production

High-quality finish, vast material options and precise tolerances have made CNC a favorable technology for end-use parts.

Typical CNC Milling Parts That We Offer

CNC milling is very flexible way to create prototype or manufacture high volume end-used parts. Plus wide ranges of milling materials are available, it fit most types of projects. Our CNC experts know how to cut your parts fast to reduce the cost, and how to mill the complex geometry and tight tolerence custom designed parts in different materials. We have delivered million+ high quality CNC parts to our worldwide customers.

Mold Components

CNC milling is playing an important role in mold making. Mold cavities, mold bases, sliders, lifter, and other mold components can be milled.

Plastic and Metal Valves

Parts like valves, engine house which require complex geometry and tight tolerance. We can make such part with our 5 axis CNC milling.

Medical Parts

CNC milled implants in medical-grade material. We are familiar with bone fracture plate and other components which can be used in surgery.

Automotive Prototypes

Besides mechanical parts such as aluminum engine house and covers, steel shafts, We also good at the parts with tiny features as light guides and reflectors.

Machine Components

This is a rotating cutter for a mask machines. It is important to make it sharp and in the mean time to keep the condentricity under +/-0.01mm.

CNC Milled Adapters

CNC milled aluminum adapters, tight tolerance for dimension, and angles of the holes, with alodine finish.

✓ A Proven Track Record

We can easily talk about our team’s experience and performance, but one of the best ways to show the superiority of our CNC machining services is to let our work speak for itself. Scroll down to our “See Our Past Projects” section to learn more about some of our thousands of success stories we’ve had with partners. We offer our services for the whole process – from the initial stages of product design, helping with material selection, to the point of manufacturing the first prototypes, to the final production run.

✓ Comprehensive Raw Material Testing and Verification

Our uncompromising material testing processes are a big reason why our CNC machining services are a cut above. All incoming raw materials are subject to chemical and physical analysis using advanced scientific equipment. No one else offers this level of material quality control, providing you with peace of mind along with Certificates of Compliance upon request. And of course in-process inspection ensures that each part is produced exactly to your design specifications.

✓ A Full Suite of Finishing Services

Many CNC machined parts require some form of post-finishing before they are ready to be put to use. From bead blasting to polishing, anodizing to plating, laser etching to painting, we offer every surface finish you need to make a great finished part.

RJC CNC Milling Service FAQ

1. Why use CNC milling?

Besides CNC turning, CNC milling is one of the most popular custom manufacturing processes. CNC milling is used for the majority of machined parts because it can handle a wide variety of irregular geometries. It is also an efficient means of mass production once the setup is complete

2. What kind of equipment do you use?

RJC”s facilities contain high-end 3-axis, 4-axis and 5-axis machining centers.

3. Can I combine milling with other processes?

Yes. We can use a CNC machine to mill details, features and text onto parts made using other processes like casting and 3D printing.
