CTE Publisher Dennis Spaeth asks MIKRON Tool's Clive Komlenic, sales director, East, about the company's new micro milling tool, the CrazyMill Cool Micro. The new cutter is said to answer their customer's desire for a micro tool that displayed a lot of the same characteristics as MIKRON's larger mills that start at 1 mm.

    gang cutting ( milling)

    Machining with several cutters mounted on a single arbor, generally for simultaneous cutting.

  • milling


    Machining operation in which metal or other material is removed by applying power to a rotating cutter. In vertical milling, the cutting tool is mounted vertically on the spindle. In horizontal milling, the cutting tool is mounted horizontally, either directly on the spindle or on an arbor. Horizontal milling is further broken down into conventional milling, where the cutter rotates opposite the direction of feed, or “up” into the workpiece; and climb milling, where the cutter rotates in the direction of feed, or “down” into the workpiece. Milling operations include plane or surface milling, endmilling, facemilling, angle milling, form milling and profiling.
