Engraving soft aluminum with the Rabbit Mill v3.0



A  very common operation of a CNC machine is metal engraving. In the following video you will see Rabbit Mill v3.0 εengraving on soft 1050 Aluminum sheet using a 60° carbide endmill.

Soft aluminum, like the one we used in the video, is one of the most difficult materials for engraving as it melts easily. So it is good to use low depth per pass (0.05mm ~ 0.1mm) and a light oil keep temperatures down.
