Machining – milling and turning

Turning and milling aluminium

Machining is a generic term for mechanical machining methods where cutting tools are used to remove a part of a workpiece. On this page you will find information about the machining processes milling and turning.

Milling

Milling is a machining method, where a rotating tool which has more than one blade, removes unwanted parts of the aluminium workpiece. The material is removed in the form of shavings. Among the opportunities milling can offer are:

 

  • Machining of long profiles
  • High-speed machining
  • 5-axis machining
  • Traditional CNC horizontal and vertical machining

Turning

Turning is a machining method, where a so-called rotating steel removes unwanted parts of the aluminium workpiece. The material is removed in the form of shavings. Among the opportunities turning can offer are:

 

  • 5-axis turning
  • CNC turning
  • Automatic turning of bars
  • Long turning
