Micro milling is a high-precision machining process that involves the removal of material from a workpiece using specialized cutting tools with diameters in the micrometer range. This advanced technique is capable of producing intricate and complex components with exceptional accuracy and surface finish. Micro milling is commonly employed in the manufacturing of ultraprecision parts and miniature devices used in industries such as electronics, medical, aerospace, and more.

The tiny cutting tools, often made of carbide or diamond, rotate at high speeds and make small, controlled cuts, allowing for the creation of features with dimensions on the micron scale. Micro milling is particularly advantageous for materials that are difficult to work with using traditional machining methods, including hardened metals, ceramics, and certain polymers.

The applications of micro milling are diverse and include the production of microfluidic devices, micro-optics, miniature molds, micro gears, and various other components with intricate geometries. As technology continues to advance, the capabilities of micro milling are expected to grow, enabling even more precise and efficient manufacturing of ultraprecision components that drive innovation in various industries.
