A milling machine is driven by a power source which cuts by a multi-tooth rotary cutter. It is constructed in such a way that the work piece (which is fixed) is fed into the cutter. The spindle of a milling machine can be oriented either vertically or horizontally. End mills are the most common types of cutters used on vertical millingmachines.End milling machines are conventionally used in different applications which require the milling of profiles, traces, shapes, faces and plunges.
To adhere to specificend-user requirements, end milling machines are manufactured havingvariousprofiles, body designs, construction materials, diameters, lengths, flutes and protective coatings. The popular designs include roughing mills, finishing mills, square mills, ball end mills and corner roughing mills. A number of end milling processes include slotting, side milling, tapering, profiling, contouring, pocket milling, ribbing and spot facing.
End Milling Machine Market: Market Dynamics
The development of cutting-edge technologies, new software and design up-gradation in machine tools, are creating growth drivers for the global end milling machine market. Product innovations through the past few years have created more productive, versatile and smarter machines, and also comparatively reduced their size. The key players adopt novel strategies and embrace improving techniques to stay ahead in the aggressive growing market. The introduction of faster machines with more horsepower and precise spindle speeds have made end milling machines popular among today’s machinists.
Conventional end mills have been substituted by multi flute end mills as the need for higher productivity is rising. Multi-flutes maintain the feed count and ensure dynamic milling operations. Latest machine developments and research are embracing hybrid technologies which combine the possibilities and advantages of different systems and to reach best results. These trendsare picking up in emerging markets.
The various operational issues in end milling machines such as excessive chip formation due to multi-flutes and shorter tool life are key factors restraining the growth of the End milling machines market. End mills need to be provided titanium coating to deal with shorter life.
These are critical parameters to evaluate the machine health along its operational life. Moreover, unavailability of skilled labor may also restraint the end milling machines market. Automatic end milling machines are capital intensive and require initial investments. These factors have restrained the use of end milling machines and been replaced by other viable options. These challenges are decelerating the growth of the End milling machines market.
However, the upcoming developments in the industrial sector and government methods to boost production in developing countries, have created lucrative opportunities for the End milling machines market.
