The mill also includes the processes of attrition and impact, although these actions are limited if the material is easily reduced by cutting and the screen limiting discharge has large perforations. The mill consists of a rotating shaft with four attached parallel knives and a screen occupying one fourth of the 360 degree rotation.

Using multiple axes of a CNC machine allows you to helically interpolate the thread profile into a work piece. Unlike a tap, a thread mill has a smaller diameter than the thread size being produced because the mill must be able to enter into the drilled hole and interpolate. Thread milling provides excellent control of the thread's major diameter

conventional milling, the cutter rotates against the direction of the feed while during climb milling, the cutter rotates with the feed. Conventional milling is the traditional approach when cutting because the backlash (Figure 1), the play between the lead screw and the nut in the machine table, is eliminated.

Use these tools with low-horsepower, manual milling machines. They have clamps for holding inserts that do not have a mounting hole. Replaceable carbide-insert end mills reduce waste and cost in high-volume jobs— when the cutting edges dull, replace the carbide inserts instead of the entire tool. End mills have a square cut style for milling square slots, pockets, and edges.
