CNC vertical milling uses automated processes to control specialized rotary cutting tools that remove material from a workpiece’s surface. Manufacturers use CNC vertical milling to both form a workpiece and to create detailing on its surface. It’s most often used to cut small holes and notches and to create three-dimensional products. These machines’ vertical spindles also make them great for drilling and plunging cuts.

Aluminum once made up the bulk of the material used in aerospace applications. Aluminum accounts for as little as 20% of the materials used in a typical jet today, however. Composite materials, carbon-reinforced polymers, and honeycomb materials are increasingly seeing usage across the aerospace industry because of the demand for lighter-weight aircraft.
