What is a milling machine and what is it used for?

Machining techniques are steadily developing, with an increasing emphasis on technology and IT. This will inevitably lead to the emergence of a new generation of machining tools that allow for ever greater precision and versatility in cutting. Some “traditional” equipment also benefits from this development and remains essential for machinists.
Among these, the milling machine continues to provide invaluable assistance in machine shops. Here is an overview of its main functions.

The main differences between 3-axis and 5-axis machining

While machine shops once used machines that worked a part on 3 axes for the most part, this can now be done on 5 axes. Although both have their advantages, an understanding of the fundamental differences between these two machining techniques is essential.

Machined parts manufacturing: What are the advantages of high-speed machining?

Machining encompasses a set of techniques used to manufacture parts by cutting. When cutting the material with specially designed cutting tools, the part gradually changes from its raw form to the finished product. This ensures a high degree of accuracy in the result.

What are the advantages of a horizontal boring machine for industrial parts?

Boring is one of the most common machining processes. However, not all types of boring machines can be used to create custom machined parts for the industrial sector. Whether because of the dimensions of the parts or the degree of precision required, some machines are simply not suitable…

What are the most commonly used industrial machining processes?

Machining is a term used to describe a variety of processes in which a cutting tool removes unwanted material from a part to produce a specific shape or surface.
The industrial sector without a doubt uses the most workshop machined parts, particularly in manufacturing production and mechanical equipment. Shafts and gears are just a few examples of parts commonly used in this sector and produced using a variety of machining techniques.
Here is an overview of the most common industrial machining processes.

What are the basic principles of cylindrical grinding?

Mechanics is a complex science that combines both ingenuity and precision. However, it sometimes needs to be taken to the extreme to ensure the proper functioning of a system. This level of accuracy can be achieved by using a machining technique called grinding.

How important is the maintenance and repair of heavy machinery?

Although some consider preventive maintenance of heavy equipment to be a waste of time, money and resources, this is certainly not a point of view shared by all people working in the industry.This is because those who have worked in the field for a long time have seen the problems that can result from neglecting regular maintenance with their own eyes. Moreover, there are several advantages to setting up a maintenance plan for heavy equipment.Find out how important it is to maintain and repair heavy machinery.

Why trust a machine shop for industrial machinery maintenance?

Industrial machines are often very expensive for companies. They nevertheless represent a key investment that will ensure the efficient production of products. In order to extend the life of the machines and ensure their proper operation, maintenance and regular cleaning are recommended.

3 innovative finishing processes used in gear manufacturing

Finishing is often the last step in a gear manufacturing process. There are different finishing techniques that make it possible to modify the machined part’s properties, in addition to providing its final look.
In recent years, innovative finishing processes have appeared in the gear-cutting field, offering manufacturers the opportunity to optimize their processes and produce higher performance mechanical parts in a timelier manner.
Discover three of these finishing techniques for machined parts.

3D printing’s impact on the machining sector

If you have been following the latest developments in 3D printing, you may have heard predictions that traditional manufacturing processes will soon be transformed by this revolutionary technology.
For the moment, however, it is unlikely to happen in the next few years. Although 3D printing will quickly become unavoidable in many areas, there is still, at least for now, a place for “traditional” machining in the manufacture of products such as mechanical parts. Discover why.
