Regarding the machining methods, milling is the process of machining utilizing rotary cutters to remove materials by advancing a cutter into a work piece. This may be done varying direction on one or several axes, cutter head speed, and pressure.
At the very beginning in the 19th century, milling machine was developed from conventional milling methods with additional capacity that aims to deal with further finishing processes as an added value of the milling machinery, and since then, the development of this specific type of machine tools goes well in the industry. After that successful debut, a great derivation called machine centers, are widely applied in all kinds of industries, contributing a wide range of industrial efforts, which make milling the most popular machining mechanism in the industry.
