First milling machines work the same way other milling machines do, they’re just exceptional at it. Milling machines work on the same basic principle as lathes – high-speed rotation used to carve out a piece of work. The difference is that a lathe rotates the piece while you use a tool to cut away at it. A milling machine rotates the cutting tool and moves it around the work. This allows for a wider range of applications, as while a lathe can sculpt pieces of material, a milling machine can create slots, drill holes, sculpt, carve patterns, re-shaping, and more.

Milling machines are used to produce a variety of products through varying styles of cutting away or sculpting. Face (also “side”) milling removes a layer of material from the complete surface of the work. Slot milling, also known as “slab” milling uses an end mill or peripheral milling cutter, and is used to create slots and sockets within the work piece. Angular milling puts angled indentations and edges on your work. Form milling is used to produce contours and patterns. Milling machines can also produce keyways, cut gears, and more.
