Milling itself is a machining process similar to both drilling and cutting, and able to achieve many of the operations performed by cutting and drilling machines. Like drilling, milling uses a rotating cylindrical cutting tool. However, the cutter in a milling machine is able to move along multiple axes, and can create a variety of shapes, slots and holes. In addition, the work-piece is often moved across the milling tool in different directions, unlike the single axis motion of a drill.</p> Tue, 11 Apr 2017 05:00:00 +0000 http://tylerinnovationpipeline.com/blog/post/3-new-3d-printers 3 New 3D Printers http://tylerinnovationpipeline.com/blog/post/3-new-3d-printers <!--StartFragment--><p>We are excited to welcome 3 brand new 3D printers to our space.&nbsp;Inventors and DIY (Do it Yourself) enthusiasts are also using 3D printers to transform their virtual ideas into solid objects. Printing a prototype is often more affordable than building one by hand, and certainly less costly than contracting a manufacturer to do it. Particularly with low quantities of production, inventors can rapidly design, print, and test a product. That cycle can be repeated several times with&nbsp; less cost and more rapidly than a single item manufactured the traditional way.&nbsp;In addition to printing and testing prototypes, 3D printers can also print ready to deliver products. In a world filled with mass manufacturing, customized toys are an expensive rarity; however, with a 3D printer, they’re easy to create.</p><!--EndFragment--> Tue, 11 Apr 2017 05:00:00 +0000
