What is the difference between a gantry milling machine and a gantry machining center ?

1. Different processing functions
1). Gantry milling machine: Multiple milling cutters can be used on the gantry milling machine to process the surface at the same time, and the machining accuracy and production efficiency are relatively high.

2). Gantry machining centers: there are fixed beam type (fixed beam, workbench movement/rotation), moving beam type (beam moving up and down, workbench moving back and forth), moving column type (workbench fixed, gantry moving), crane type (workbench fixed, beam moving) There are also the above composite forms of multi-type gantry machining centers.

2. Different applications
1). Gantry milling machine: it is suitable for machining the plane and bevel of large workpieces in batch and mass production.

2). Gantry machining center: suitable for processing large workpieces and workpieces with complex shapes.

3.The functional structure is different
1). Gantry milling machine: The beam and column are not equipped with a planer tool holder but a milling tool holder with a headstock, and the reciprocating movement of the longitudinal table of the gantry milling machine is not the main movement, but the feed movement, and the rotational movement of the milling cutter is the main movement.

2). Gantry machining center: The workbench of the gantry machining center is basically rectangular.Large castings such as workbench, bed, column, beam and ram are made of cast iron or welded parts. The inner cavity of the castings is a honeycomb composite arrangement structure with advanced design. They are all aging and secondary tempering treatment to eliminate residual internal stress and stabilize the material to ensure the stability of the workpiece machining accuracy and the life of the machine tool.
