Milling machine mainly refers to the use of milling cutter on the workpiece a variety of surface processing machine. Usually milling cutter rotary motion-based movement, workpiece and milling cutter movement for the feed movement. It can be processed plane, groove, can also process a variety of surfaces, gears and so on.
Milling machine is used to mill the workpiece milling machine. In addition to milling milling plane, groove, gear teeth, thread and spline shaft, but also processing more complex profiles, the efficiency of planer high, widely used in the machinery manufacturing and repair sector.
The milling machine is a versatile machine that can machine flat surfaces (horizontal, vertical), grooves (keyways, T-grooves, dovetail grooves, etc.), parting elements (gears, spline shafts, sprockets) Spiral surface (thread, spiral groove) and a variety of surfaces. In addition, can also be used for the surface of the rotor, the hole processing and cutting work. Milling machine at work, the workpiece mounted on the table or indexing head and other accessories, cutter rotation for the main movement, supported by the table or milling head feed movement, the workpiece can get the required processing surface. Due to the multi-blade intermittent cutting, the productivity of milling machines is high. In simple terms, a milling machine can machine, cut, drill and machine workpieces.
