We have already introduced what is vertical machining center, What does a vertical machining center do, Let’s learn about it together.
what is vertical machining center
The vertical machining center is a fully-functioning machine tool that can be used in a wide range of different types of machining operations through automatic tool changers and can perform all machining operations in one setup, so it is widely used in the processing of parts in different industries. This kind of processing equipment is especially suitable for processing parts with various conditions, complicated shape structure, high precision requirements and good processing consistency. It often includes box parts, complex curved parts, and special-shaped parts.
What does a vertical machining center do
Vertical machining center (CNC) refers to the machining center with the spindle axis and the table vertically set. It is a highly automated multi-function CNC machine tool with tool magazine and automatic tool changer. It is mainly used for processing plates and discs. , complex parts of molds and small shells.
It can complete milling, boring, drilling, tapping and cutting threads, so it is necessary to achieve at least 2-axis linkage. Generally, 3-axis linkage can be realized, and some can be controlled by 5-axis and 6-axis.
