CNC Milling

At NFF Precision, we have in our workshop a fully programmable CNC Milling Centre. This is a great piece of equipment that enables us to cut and shape all materials into a range of simple and complex designs.

What Is CNC Milling?

Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) Milling is the term given to the widely popular computer automated mills that perform a drilling and cutting/shaping service. The CNC Mills operate upon a set of instructions which are inputted to create the desired effect such as different holes, shapes and slots upon different axes.

CNC Mills are distinguished by a specific label that designates the axes the mills work on. Horizontal movements are labelled X and Y, whereas vertical movements are labelled Z. A majority of CNC milling machines operate on an average of 3 to 5 axes and are adept at cutting a majority of shapes. However, there are more advanced machines like the 5-axis milling machine that is programmed by CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing). The great advantage of this machine is that it can cut and produce highly complex geometric shapes that could not be cut using conventional methods.

CNC milling offers its users a precise degree of freedom that can be used in many applications such as engraving, diesinking, relief sculptures and more. The use of CNC machines offers its users a very precise and cost effective milling service that does not compromise on speed.

The great advantage of CNC Milling is that it can be used to cut or drill through any material. This is often in spite of the fact that CNC Mills are used to predominantly to cut, drill and shape metal work. To avoid problems, the correct tools must be chosen to suit the material being cut.
