CNC milling is a production process that removes material from a block through a cutting tool that is mounted on a motorized spindle. The removal takes place by moving the spindle with respect to the block being processed or by moving the block being machined with respect to the spindle. The numerical control system (CNC) controls spindle speed and relative movements, reading information from a file prepared specifically for this purpose (CAM file).
The working volume that MarMax can handle by milling is 1000 x 700 x 290 mm.
Generally, the manufacturing accuracy varies according to the dimensions of the piece, the geometry, the material to be machined. The MarMax system has a repeatability of 0.01 mm, which allows performing good precision machining.
The materials that can be processed at MarMax facilities include wood and derivatives (mdf, multilayer, etc ...), thermoplastics (abs, pmma, pa, etc), polyurethanes (low, medium, high density), light alloys (aluminum, brass, bronze).
The machining processes range from sheet cutting to engraving, from one side milling to both sides, but also to machining on four axes.
