Materials & Processes • Milling


We use a router table to cut diameter changes, round edges, profiles or construction-related geometries. In certain cases milling cutters with the appropriate geometry for the part have to be specially manufactured. When those have been adjusted properly the cabinetmaker cuts the desired shape with up to 12.000 revolutions per minute. Parts for furniture are cut with a precision of up to a tenth of a millimetre. For the frame of FRAME SEAT we cut different diagonals, edges and diameter changes into the battens. In this case we use milling templates. This is a complicated process because the templates have to be built first and because it requires extreme concentration to precisely position the template in the milling machine.
