Down to the Basics: Milling.

Over the next couple weeks, we’re going to go over the seven, basic machine processes that go into making our parts; Turning, Hobbing, Milling, Tapping, Boring, Parting, and Broaching.

Although there are numerous post-production steps that go into finishing a Profile Racing part, this is where it starts.

Up sixth: Milling.

Milling is mostly done on a Mill.

Unlike in a lathe, where the tool is stationary and the part turns, during milling, the tool turns.

Profile Elite Cranks: You can see where milling was done to created holes for the pedal and spindle boss, as well as the rear support triangle.

The Mulville Push stem is Mill heavy.

Completed first Milling process on the Mulville Push Stem.

100% of our sprockets are done on a Mill.

And overall, 50% of our work is done through Profile’s several Milling stations.
