Computer Driven Milling Machines Used to Cut Contours
Once the data is ready, very sophisticated computer driven milling machines cut "tool paths" from this information with great precision. If the results are as expected, these milling machines can then reproduce these contours with consistent repeatability.
The advantage here is that we can manipulate data and contours in a NON-DESTRUCTIVE way. Since all the information is digital, changes can be undone with great ease.
OPUS1 gouging machine is manufactured using a HAAS Mini Mill. This machine is a fully robotic 3-axis vertical milling center. It is truly State-of-the-Art.
