Rack and Large Gear Milling

Milling is the machining process of using rotary cutters to remove material from a workpiece by advancing (or feeding) in a direction at an angle with the axis of the tool. It covers a wide variety of different operations and machines, on scales from small individual parts to large, heavy-duty gang milling operations. It is one of the most commonly used processes in industry and machine shops today for machining parts to precise sizes and shapes.

  • Excellent for medium production of steering racks
  • Very justifiable tool costs
  • Very fast set up times
  • More accurate than broaching
  • Large gears milled with CNC arc segment method
