At SMI Verspaning we offer several milling services: 3-axis, 5-axis and 5-axis simultaneous. Milling is the machining process of using rotary cutters/tools to remove material from a single piece of metal by advancing in a direction at an angle with the axis of the tool. The result is a product created out of a single piece of metal, this way parts do not need to be welded together which increases the strenght and durability of the products.
Machining covers a wide variety of different operations and machines, it can be done on a small scale creating individual parts and up to large, heavy-duty milling operations. It is one of the most common used processes in industry today for machining parts with complex sizes and shapes.
Two different methods are used: manual or computer numerial controlled (CNC). Our machines are completely computer controlled to achieve the best precision and create highly advanced sizes and shapes. With automatic tool systems, tool magazines, coolant systems and enclosures, our machines are the core of our business.
