-- CNC mills provide the kind of accuracy and efficiency needed to mill prototype parts for the experiments done in a jet propulsion laboratory. CNC Masters provides this technology for JPL-NASA with their CNC Jr. Mill.
A CNC mill is used in machining solid materials. Like any other milling machine, it does work with metal and wood, specifically cutting to create specific parts. What makes it different though is its control. While there are manual mills, a CNC mill is controlled by a computer and has the ability to move the spindle vertically along the Z-axis.
CNC mills provide a great degree of freedom which allows for more delicate procedures that a manual mill is capable of. Some CNC machines even have other axes other than the X, Y and Z axes. A CNC multi-axis machine is capable of fabricating parts in a three-dimensional form, including organic forms such as a human head.
The CNC Jr. Mill used by the JPL-NASA works with Windows operating systems such as Vista and XP and provides cutting along the X, Y and Z axes. As CNC Masters manufactured both the mill and its software, the company can instantly provide support for their machines.
