Three-axis milling is a machining technique in which the cutter makes linear movements around the product along three axes. It is a relatively simple method of milling which can be used for the processing of various common plastic products. CNC milling of plastics is one of BKB Precision’s core specialties.
Three-axis milling: possibilities and benefits
Three-axis CNC milling is a computer-controlled machining method suitable for a variety of purposes. It offers the possibility of making different shapes, contours or holes in the plastic product. This results in precise plastic processing, exactly the way you had in mind. This common machining technique is particularly suitable for uncomplicated plastic processing. The choice between 3, 4 or 5-axis milling depends on the complexity of the desired product and type of plastic.
