What are machining center, The machining center adds an automatic tool changer to the CNC milling machine. The machining center improves the machining efficiency of the parts and is one of the most widely used CNC machine tools.
Classification of machining centers
The machining center is usually classified by the relative position of the main shaft and the table, and is divided into a horizontal machining center vertical machining center and a gantry machining center.
Vertical machining center: It refers to the machining center that is perpendicular to the spindle axis and the worktable. It is mainly used for processing complex parts such as plates, discs, molds and small shells.
Horizontal Machining Center: It refers to the machining center where the spindle axis and the worktable are arranged in parallel, and is mainly suitable for processing box-type parts.
The role of the machining center
The biggest difference between the machining center and the CNC milling machine is that the machining center has the function of automatically exchanging tools. By installing different tools in the tool magazine, the machining tools on the main shaft can be changed by the automatic tool changer in one setup to realize drilling and boring. , hinge, tapping, grooving and other processing functions.
