CNC Mill

The CNC milling machine is of a 3 axis bed mill type. The machine can be run in a manual mode for traditional milling operations.

The FABLab has two vertical metal mills for fabricating precision parts. They are mostly used to manufacture tools and parts for the robots, which allow fabrication of high quality custom tooling prototypes.

Procedure

The mills are programmed with MasterCAM software or manually operated for simple applications.

Materials

The most common materials machined on the mills are ferrous and non-ferrous metals as well as cast plastics.

Contact

In general, the CNC mills are limited to research and specific coursework. External use of the machines is very limited on a case-by-case basis. To discuss the application, email taubmancollegefablab@umich.edu.
