The term tool refers to the category of machinery which is generally powered electrically or hydraulically or by any means other than human effort. These are widely used to make manufactured parts or components in various ways that include cutting or certain other kinds of deformation. By constant research and day-by-day developing technical strategies, today a wide range of tools have evolved to make the industrial processes simplified and easier to work out.
A milling device is definitely is one of the best examples of tools that have evolved to make solid material machining processes in industries simpler. With the help of this one can perform a vast number of operations ranging from simple tasks like slot and keyway cutting, planing, drilling to complex operations like contouring and die sinking. There are two categories now available in market. They are horizontal milling and vertical milling where horizontal and vertical refers to the orientation of the main spindle of the device.
