FAQ on CNC milling

What is CNC milling?

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).

What are the maximum dimensions that you can work with your equipment?

The working volume that MarMax can handle by milling is 1000 x 700 x 290 mm.

What is the best accuracy?

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.

Which materials can be used in MarMax milling process?

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).

What kind of machining processes can be done with your milling machine?

The machining processes range from sheet cutting to engraving, from one side milling to both sides, but also to machining on four axes.
