Milled Plates and Blocks from IMS
Top and Bottom or 6 Side Milling

"What could cost you hours, takes us minutes."

We recently milled a block 4.875" x 14-1/4" x 16-1/4" taking .375" off the top and bottom and taking .250" off the width and length. On a typical vertical machining center this would take anywhere from 3 to 4 hours. This includes setup as well as machine time. With our new equipment (see photos) it took us under an hour to setup and machine the block square 6 sides.
