What is a machining centre?

The term machining centre refers to most CNC milling and drilling machines that use a workholding table a automatic tool-changer, tool carousel or tool magazine.

The key to a machining center is that the tool rotates while the work stays still.

5 Axis machining centers allow for the tool to pivot, allowing the milling machine to work at various different angles and orientations.

Milling Machines are likely the most common type of CNC machine used today. In this context, milling means using a rotary tool to remove material from the piece of work.
