See What Sets Live Free Armory Apart From Competitors
Understanding the differences between turning and milling helps define what application you chose when making your part. The major difference between milling and turning is the relationship of the workpiece and the tool. In a lathe, the workpiece that is being machined spins about its axis, while the cutting tool does not. The opposite is true for milling. The tool in a milling machine rotates about its axis, while the workpiece does not. Being able to do both turning and mill in one machine is a significant advantage. Live Free Armory has been able to outperform the competition through increased efficiency and reduced cycle times on more complex parts by utilizing our mill-turn lathes.
