The difference between CNC milling machine and machining center

CNC milling machine also called Computer Numerical Control milling machine. It is a milling machine controlled by digital signal of electronic meter. CNC milling machine is an automatic processing equipment developed on the basis of general milling machine. The processing technology of the two is basically the same, and the structure is also partially similar.

The machining Center is a highly automated multi-function CNC machine tool with a tool storage and automatic tool changing device, using CNC system to generate digital signal to drive precision machining of milling machine.

The difference between a milling machine and a machining center is :

1.The machining center is a CNC machine tool with automatic switching device and continuous machining, which is developed by CNC milling machine.

2.The machining center can automatically change the tool. After the work piece is clamped once on the machining center, the digital control system can control the machine tool to automatically select and replace the tool according to different processes, and automatically change the machine tool spindle speed, feed and the movement path of the tool relative to the work piece. And other auxiliary functions, complete the processing of multiple processes on several surfaces of the work piece in turn, and have a variety of tool changing or tool selection functions, which can achieve various processing capabilities, thereby greatly improving production efficiency.

3.Machining centers are more widely used, because machining centers can be four-axis or five-axis, and CNC milling machines only have three-axis.

4.The machining center can complete the processes of milling, boring, drilling, tapping and cutting threads; the machined surface shape of the milling machine is generally composed of straight lines, arcs or other curves.
