The most satisfying CNC machining video you’ll watch this year

Tuesday, Dec 17, 2019

As world-class machinists here at Hamilton, we love nerding out to YouTube videos that feature CNC milling machines creating works of pure mechanical beauty. The high-dimensional complexity that can be achieved truly boggles the mind.

So this month, we bring you a little masterpiece from the folks at Hermle Machining Center. Watch as their CNC machine precision-generates an Eiffel Tower from one giant aluminum block. It’s like watching a symphony of lathe work. Who would have thought a machine could look so graceful while carving out such painstaking detail from a big block of metal? Of course, the material waste hurts our feelings, and we’re glad we don’t have to pick up the mess ourselves, but it is insanely impressive, nonetheless.
