CNC milling machines or machining centers are computer controlled vertical mills with the ability to move the spindle vertically along the Z-axis. This extra degree of freedom permits their use in engraving applications, and also allows to create 2.5D surfaces such as relief sculptures. When combined with the use of conical tools or a ball nose cutter, it also significantly improves milling precision without impacting speed, providing a cost-efficient alternative to most flat-surface hand-engraving work.
Prototek Precision Machining presently has 3 CNC mills in which we can handle all of your CNC milling needs. We have a Hurco VM2 vertical machining center with a Hurco max control which can be programmed conversational or in g-code. With this machine we can handle your parts up to 40” x 18” x 18”. This machine features a 16 station tool changer, with the machining speeds up to 8000 RPM and it has a powerful 20 hp motor. We also have a Hurco BMC20LR with a ultimax 3 control which can be programmed conversational or in g-code. With this machine we can handle your parts up to 24” x 14” x 14”. This machine features a 16 station tool changer, with the machining speeds up to 6000 RPM and it has a 15 hp motor. We also have a 3 axis Kent knee mill. With this machine we can do larger parts then our machining centers because this machine does not have the guards around the machine. This machine has table travel of 30” in the X, 15.500” in the Y and 15” in the Z.
