VMCs are utilized primarily (although not solely) as metal cutting machines that remove steel, aluminum or other hard materials—thus, shaping a raw block of material into a precision formed, or “machined” surface.
VMCs can be utilized for not only cutting, but also drilling, carving, engraving, tapping, countersinking, chamfering and many other applications. Because of their versatility and relatively low cost, they are extremely popular machines that are found in shops all over the world. In fact, chances are good that there is a machine in operation just a few miles from where you are reading this now.
