Planer Milling

Planer mills are machine tools with two methods of removing stock from workpieces. In the first method, the planer head holds a single-point tool in a fixed position, and the workpiece moves beneath the tool removing stock. In the second, the milling head holds tooling such as endmills and inserted shell cutters for removing stock in typical milling practices.

The planer mill is well suited for long straight cuts or for when cuts of varying angles are required. The milling head can remove a large amount of material quickly. Its cuts are similar to those of a lathe but linear instead of helical.

Professionalism at it's Best

Great experience. Withers goes above and beyond to ensure they exceed your expectations.

Withers understood the importance of my position with a press down and meeting customer's expectations. Withers had no warning as to the scope of the work. They worked late and came in very early to ensure that I had the equipment back in 24 hours. There is no other shop in Atlanta with the resources that would make a commitment as what Withers did.
