Vertical Machining Center
Vertical machining center refers to a machining center with a vertical spindle. Its structure is mostly a fixed column. The worktable is rectangular and has no indexing and rotation function. It is suitable for processing discs, sleeves, and plate parts. It generally has three linear motions. Coordinate axis, and a rotary table rotating along the horizontal axis can be installed on the worktable to process spiral parts.
The vertical machining center is easy to install, easy to operate, easy to observe the processing conditions, easy to debug the program, and has a wide range of applications. However, limited by the height of the column and the tool changer, parts that are too high cannot be machined. When machining the cavity or concave profile, the chips are not easy to discharge. In severe cases, the tool will be damaged, the machined surface will be damaged, and the smooth processing will be affected.
Horizontal machining center
Horizontal machining center refers to a machining center with a horizontal spindle. It usually has an automatic indexing rotary table. It generally has 3 to 5 motion coordinates. The common one is three linear motion coordinates plus one rotary motion coordinate. After the card is installed once, the processing of the remaining four surfaces except the mounting surface and the top surface is completed. It is suitable for adding box-like parts. Compared with the vertical machining center, the horizontal machining center is easy to remove chips during machining, which is beneficial to the machining, but the structure is complicated.
