Earlier, milling machines were either manually or mechanically automated, however significant technological advancements have led to the development of Computer Numerical Control machining. Computer Numerical Control (CNC) has been integrated in a number of new machinery and technologies, and CNC milling machine is one of the most common form of CNC machining. These machines are used for shaping of metal and other solid materials, with two basic forms of CNC milling machines: horizontal and vertical, referring to the orientation of the cutting tool spindle. CNC milling machines usually require a Computer Aided Design/ Computer Aided Manufacture (CAD/CAM) software for proper functioning. The numerical information generally “G and M” codes is used to control and drive the machining center, which is used to fabricate components using cutting tools for removal of material.
