A machine tool which is used for producing flat or profiled surfaces, grooves or slots with the help of a revolving (mostly) multiple tooth cutter is known as a milling machine.
milling machine working principle
The work is held rigidly on the table of milling machine while the cutter is mounted on a spindle or arbor. The chips are cut off by the rotating milling cutter. The cutting edges ( teeth) of which are arranged in a circular way. To enable the cutting-edges of the milling cutter to penetrate into the material, the cutting edges are made wedge-shaped (like a turning tool).
