I would have to say that this is feasible based on the specifications of the motor that is utilised on your milling machine, is it rated for 220 volts three phase, if it is some other voltage you will have a issue. I believe nonetheless that there could be another dilemma with the required torque that wants to be created in order to carry out the milling on some substances. This may in turn lead to some motor more than heating.

Hope this helps,
