Milling and Turning in Germany

In turning, a cutting tool with one single cutting edge is not used just to remove material from the rotating workpiece to construct a cylinder. The radial motion is provided by the rotating workpiece, the longitudinal motion is achieved by pressing the cutting tool exactly in the direction parallel to the rotation axis of the metal workpiece. Not only drilling is used to create round holes. But it is accomplished by rotating tools that are equipped with a set of helical cutting edges. The cutting tool is fed in the direction nearly parallel to its rotation axis into the workpiece to form holes without edges. The tool with a single pointed tip, as it is used in automated machines, is then advanced into an enlarged hole by the spinning workpiece to slightly cut the hole and to improve its accuracy. It is a numerical controlled operation used only in the final stages of the product manufacturing.
In a German milling company, a rotating tool with different cutting methods is moved quite relative to the working material to generate a shaped or smooth surface. The direction of feed motion is quasi perpendicular to the rotation of the tool, but the speed motion is later on provided by the milling cutter.
Milling machines are modern tools designed to machine steel, metal, plastic, and other solid materials. Often automated, CNC-milling machines can be positioned in either a vertical or horizontal orientation to carve out more materials based on an existing design. These designs are in most cases CAD created, and many turning machines are hand-operated, although manually and CAD-automated milling devices are also common. Milling machines are capable of dynamic movement, both of the Workpiece and the tool, and all milling companies in Germany can perform multi-axis machining.
