Milling machine operation is a vital role necessary for manufacturing a wide range of complex products and components out of a variety of hard materials, such as metals, fiberboard, wood, and plastics. Milling is often the ideal solution for companies that need a specific component made for prototyping, custom work, or to create a new part for a unique or discontinued product or machine. At Excell Solutions in North Billerica, MA we work with each customer’s specific needs to ensure that they get the precise part they’re looking for, not something they have to settle for.
At Excell Solutions, we provide state-of-the art milling with:
- Volume production to precision one-off components
- 4th axis machining capability
- Spindle speeds up to 24,000 RPM
- Remarkably fine milling detail and complexity
- Tolerances of 0.001″ to 0.003″
Most moving metal parts cannot be die cast to the fine level of detail that can be shaped and cut using the latest milling equipment, including computer-controlled (CNC) milling. Our milling machine operation includes vertical cutters and horizontal mills built to cut key shapes, end mills for cutting slots and pockets in metal, two fluted end mills for plunge work, and ball end mills for fillet cutting.
Though most metal milling machine work involves flat surfaces, a mill can also be set to produce a defined irregular surface and complex three-dimensional shapes. The typical design involves a multi-toothed cutting bit of various shapes which is fed into a workpiece fastened to a computer-controlled moving table.
By having machining, sheet metal, and welding all in one facility, we further make project planning and ordering easier for our customers and reduce their project lead times. All of our departments, including milling machine operation, work closely with each other so the accompanying components for your machined parts can also be made, assembled, and delivered together and turn-key — all from one purchase order. By cutting out shipping between multiple suppliers, the risk of damage in transit is greatly reduced while efficiency and quality are significantly increased.
