A milling machine is a device that fixes the workpiece on the main shaft of the machine tool and removes the material by the high-speed rotation of the tool. The milling machine can mill a flat surface, and also a curved surface, grooves, and gears with specific cutters. Milling machines were firstly invented in Europe in the 17th century. After the Industrial Revolution and the demand for a large number of military weapons after the 19th century, milling machines have also evolved into universal milling machines, gantry milling machines, etc., and developed support machining devices such as indexing discs, universal cutters, and feed table, etc. However, it still relies on manual calculation of processing parameters, and then sets the operating procedures on the milling machine.The milling machine is a machinery with carbide tools that rotate at high speed to mill the workpiece.
CNC Milling Machines and Multi-Axis Machining Machines
Until the mid-20th century, milling machines could be driven by computer and digital signals, and become able to process various and complex types of parts, including holes, threads, milling teeth, and curved surface processing. The traditional vertical milling machine can only process one surface of the three-dimensional workpiece, and after completing one surface, it must be flipped to the next surface, which is easy to cause precision deviation during the turning process. Therefore, the development of milling machines is heading toward three-axis, four-axis, and simultaneous five-axis multi-face processing functions, which can reduce the positioning error of re-picking and placing workpieces while machining different surfaces, and also avoid the cumulative tolerance.Thread machining on aluminum casting through the tap tool of CNC milling machines.
What Materials Can Be Milled by WKPT CNC Milling Machining Manufacturer?
In the early days, the materials processed by milling machines were mainly cast iron, carbon steel, stainless steel, wood, and aluminum alloys. WKPT started from gray cast iron machining and evolved to ductile iron machining. Ductile iron has higher metallic toughness, which has a greater impact on machine, tool life and precision.
With the advance of applied materials science, the materials available for industrial applications are also more diverse, such as carbon fiber, nickel-zinc alloy materials, etc. During the machining of these special materials, the requirements for tool rigidity, milling machine stability, and spindle speed are more strict, which also becomes a test for CNC milling machining service suppliers on equipment investment and personnel quality in high-value-added metalworking.Advantages of WKPT Aluminum Alloy Milling Machining
WKPT has engaged in the machining of aluminum alloys and special aluminum alloys, such as 7 series for aerospace aluminum alloys. The 7 series aluminum alloys have high strength, high toughness and good processing plasticity because of its Zinc, Magnesium, Copper and other elements.
When cutting these special aluminum alloys, it is necessary to overcome the impact of machining temperature on the deformation and precision of the workpiece. We have accumulated knowledge of advanced metalworking and differences between various materials, combining decades of experience in the design of jigs and fixtures, which has made us become a solution provider of metal forming, machining and surface treatment in the field of CNC metal milling service.
