Planing / Profiling
Planing is an old art by which metal is cut in a manner of widdling material with a single blade/cutter. This is a method long abandoned since the development of machining centers and especially with the new technology of CNC machining. There are, however, still applications in which you cannot beat this technology. Such as applications that require straight, flat and parallelism in an excessive long part. Also, the cutters are made to conform to sections of the shape being machined and can access difficult to reach areas.
