  • What is a Mini CNC Mill?

    What is a mini CNC mill?

    A mini CNC mill is a compact machining center. It provides an economical solution for small parts machining in a compact package that is loaded with full-size features.


    The chief limitation of a mini mill is not so much the quality of the work it can produce, but the size of the work it can handle.

    Uses of mini mills

    A mini CNC mill is perfect for schools, start-up shops, or as a first step into CNC machining.


    Mini mills are a serious investment, bringing industrial-style machining capabilities to the home or shop. Mini mills possess the power to take a piece of raw scrap and quickly turn it into a useable part, something you can’t say about a hammer or a saw.
