What is CNC Milling ?

CNC milling is a specific form of computer numerical controlled (CNC) machining.  Milling itself is a machine process similar to both drilling and cutting, and able to achieve many of the operations performed by cutting and drilling machines.  Like drilling, milling uses a rotating cylindrical cutting tool.  However, the cutter in a milling machine is able to move along multiple axes and create a variety of shapes, slots and holes.  In addition, the work-piece is often moved across the milling tool in differente directions, unlike the single axis motion of a drill.

Milling has several advantages over other manufacturing processes.  It is cost effective and can mill complex shapes and dimensional tolerances are possieeble.  Smooth finishes can be achieved.  CNC milling can produce almost any 2D or 3D shape provided that the rotating cutting tools can reach the material to be removed.  Examples of products where CNC milling is used, besides Belt Buckles, include engine components, mould tooling and complex mechanisms, etc.



What is Die Cast ?

Die casting is a process that is characterised by forcing molten metal under high pressure into a mould cavity.  The mould cavity is created using two hardened dies which have been machined into shape and work similarly to an injection mould during the process.

Die casting equipment and the metal dies represent large capital investment and this tends to limit the process to high-volume production.  Manufacturing of parts using die casting is relatively simple, involving only four main steps, which keeps the incremental cost per item low.  It is especially suited for a large quantity of small to medium sized castings, which is why die casting produces more castings than any other casting process.  Die castings are characterised by a very good surface finish (by casting standards) and dimensional consistency.
