1. Purpose of Milling at the Smooth Miller

Milling on the smooth miller serves for making plane broad faces as well as narrow faces being at an angle to the broad face. Milling of broad and narrow faces is the first step of machining the workpieces on the thicknessing miller. The plane faces are the determining factor for the quality of the final product.
