CNC milling is a process that represents drilling and cutting within CNC machining. Milling employs a cylindrical blade at a high speed in order to accurately drill and cut intricate shapes.
With an experienced staff and our state-of-the-art machining job shop, we execute a wide range of machining services such as CNC milling, CNC Turning and CNC Precision Machining for our machined parts. Our facilities house completely updated and advanced equipment for tooling short and long run components. We produce highly complex, three-dimensional machined parts from aluminum, plastic, titanium, copper and other materials. Our machinists have extensive experience and specializations to machine even the most complex precision parts. Our staff is highly trained and motivated to continue to learn the newest Swiss machining techniques being developed.
leader in Computer Numerical Control, or CNC milling. Our milling job shop productions meet the most advanced specifications, and our milling manufacturing equipment is state-of-the-art. Alpha Omega Swiss CNC milling specialists are committed to producing perfectly milled components and machined plastic parts.
CNC is a cutting process whereby material on a block is milled by a computer-controlled tool which moves and rotates. CNC milling is a common milling process which creates precise components quickly and accurately. We utilize a variety of cutting tools which enable specified part shapes. Our state-of-the-art equipment includes Doosan and Johnford Machining Centers, up to 122″ in length and 70″ in width. Our CNC milling capabilities can produce an effective solution for machined parts.
Whether you need a long or short run production of machined components, we can accommodate your project requirements.
We specialize in long run and short run orders with quick turnaround. In addition to maximum productivity, we fabricate CNC milled parts from aluminum, titanium, steel and other materials depending on your unique industry’s needs.
Most CNC milling machines (also called machining centers) are computer controlled vertical mills with the ability to move the spindle vertically along the Z-axis. This extra degree of freedom permits their use in die sinking, engraving applications, and 2.5D surfaces such as relief sculptures. When combined with the use of conical tools or a ball nose cutter, it also significantly improves milling precision without impacting speed, providing a cost-efficient alternative to most flat-surface hand-engraving work.
CNC machines can exist in virtually any of the forms of manual machinery, like horizontal mills. The most advanced CNC milling-machines, the multi-axis machine, add two more axes in addition to the three normal axes (XYZ). Horizontal milling machines also have a C or Q axis, allowing the horizontally mounted workpiece to be rotated, essentially allowing asymmetric and eccentric turning. The fifth axis (B axis) controls the tilt of the tool itself. When all of these axes are used in conjunction with each other, extremely complicated geometries, even organic geometries such as a human head can be made with relative ease with these machines. But the skill to program such geometries is beyond that of most operators. Therefore, 5-axis milling machines are practically always programmed with CAM.
