    How Arbor Milling Machines Differ From Other Milling Machines

    • May 23, 2019

    Milling machines rely on the use of a rotating multi-pointed cutting tool to remove material from a workpiece. Unlike with lathes, milling machines don’t feature a stationary cutting tool. Rather, they use a cutting tool that rotates as it presses against a fixed, stationary workpiece. While all milling machines use this process to reshape workpieces,
