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.
