What is CNC Milling?

CNC milling is the process of removing material from a solid block of material by using a computer to move a cutting tool on and around the solid block of material which is fixed in place throughout the process unless it needs to be "repositioned".

What is the difference between a 2 axis and a 3 axis cnc milling maching?

A 2 axis milling machine can only remove material from the X and Y axis at one time. The X and Y axis are commonly referenced as the length and the width of the part. A 3 axis milling machine adds the additional ability of removing material from the Z axis which is also commonly referenced as the height of the part. A 3 axis milling machine gives you the ability to make much more complex parts than a 2 axis machine.

What is the difference between cnc milling and cnc turning?

CNC turning differs from cnc milling in that with cnc turning, the part is turned while the cutting bit remains in a fixed position. In cnc milling, the block of material being made into the part remains in a fixed position while the cutting tool moves around the block of material guided by a computer.
