List of materials for CNC PRO toolhead

CNC (Computer numerical controlled machining) milling is one of the most common subtractive manufacturing technologies where the material is removed from a solid block using cutting tools to manufacture a part from a CAD model. Thanks to its versatility and repeatability CNC milling is widely used for low-to-mass production, prototyping, mechanical parts and more. The main advantages of CNC Milling are:

Accuracy  

Versatility  

Repeatability  

Reproducibility
