CNC stands for Computer Numerical Controlled, and refers to production machines which, by means of a computer, can produce many uniformly complex parts of metal and other materials, and which are programmed in a language which complies with the ISO standard.
One of Esko’s areas of expertise is CNC machining, including CNC milling, where we produce everything from milling in series from single pieces to series with a large numbers of pieces.
Milling is a process in machining, which also is a process that removes material from a workpiece using various cutting tools. In CNC milling, the workpiece does not rotate when machined like turning is. By milling, the workpiece is clamped in a clamping tool, where rotating tools cut off the excess material.
