Milling Machine Definition

“A milling machine is a machine tool in which a horizontal arbor or vertical spindle rotates a cutting tool above a horizontal table, which is used to move a workpiece. A milling machine will shave off small sections of the metal until the final product is produced.”

Vertical Mill Machine

In vertical mill machine,  the spindle axis is vertically oriented. Milling cutters are held in the spindle and rotate on its axis. The spindle can generally be extended, or the table raised or lowered to produce the same effect, to allow for plunge cuts and drilling. At Baileigh Industrial we offer 2 vertical mill lines: economical E models and production mills that last for decades.
