Earlier, milling machines were either manually or mechanically automated, however significant technological advancements have led to the development of Computer Numerical Control machining. Computer Numerical Control (CNC) has been integrated in a number of new machinery and technologies, and CNC milling machine is one of the most common form of CNC machining. These machines are used for shaping of metal and other solid materials, with two basic forms of CNC milling machines: horizontal and vertical, referring to the orientation of the cutting tool spindle. CNC milling machines usually require a Computer Aided Design/ Computer Aided Manufacture (CAD/CAM) software for proper functioning. The numerical information generally “G and M” codes is used to control and drive the machining center, which is used to fabricate components using cutting tools for removal of material.
Rapid growth of manufacturing sector in both developed and developing countries, coupled with growing trend for smart-machining, connected factories and additive manufacturing is estimated to increase demand for CNC milling machines over the forecast period.
However, high initial set-up cost and considerable investments in RD activities for development of products reflects on the final product price, as well as limits participation of several players in the market. Nonetheless, Introduction of 6-axis CNC milling machines for machining of aluminum, steel, cast iron and model making materials, lowers production time by 75%, finds usage in aerospace and automotive parts, plus model-making and mould applications, which is expected to further augment growth of the target market.
