What is the CNC machining center tool magazine?
>What is the CNC machining center tool magazine? The tool magazine system is a device for the storage and tool change required in the automated machining process of CNC machining center. Its automatic tool change mechanism and tool magazine that can store multiple tools have changed the traditional production method based on people. Through the control of the computer program, various processing requirements can be completed, such as milling, drilling, boring, tapping, etc., which greatly shortens the processing time and reduces the production cost, which is the biggest feature of the tool magazine system.
Carousel Type Tool Magazine
Generally, only 16 to 24 tools can be stored, and the entire magazine moves to the spindle when the tool change is performed. When the tool on the spindle enters the slot of the magazine, the spindle moves up and out of the tool, at which point the magazine rotates. When the tool to be changed is directly below the positive spindle, the spindle moves down, so that the tool enters the spindle taper hole. After the tool is clamped, the magazine returns to its original position.
Inverter Type Vertical Disc Tool Magazine
Disc magazines are commonly used on small vertical machining machines. The “disc magazine” is commonly known as the “disc magazine” to distinguish it from the “bucket magazine” and the “chain magazine”. The disc-shaped magazine has a small capacity, with at most two or thirty knives. Tool exchange is required with ATC (Auto Tools Change).
