What are the main uses of vertical machining centers? Let’s take a quick look at this:
Machining Center (abbreviated as CNC full name is Computerized Numerical Control): is a highly automated multi-functional CNC machine tool with tool library and automatic tool changing device. In Hong Kong, China, Taiwan and Guangdong, there are also many people calling it computer gong.
After the workpiece is clamped once on the machining center, the digital control system can control the machine tool to select and replace the tool automatically according to different working procedures, automatically change the spindle speed, feed quantity and the movement track of the tool relative to the workpiece and other auxiliary functions, and finish the machining of the multi-process on several surfaces of the workpiece in turn. And there are a variety of knife or knife selection function, so that the production efficiency greatly improved.
Vertical machining center refers to the machining center which is set vertically with the spindle axis and the worktable. The vertical machining center machine should be suitable for the complicated parts such as machining plate, disk, mould and small shell. The vertical machining center can finish milling, boring, drilling, tapping and cutting threads. Vertical machining center is at least three axis two linkage, generally can achieve three axis three linkage. Some can carry on five axis, six axis control. The height of vertical machining center column is limited, and the processing range of box type workpiece should be reduced, which is the disadvantage of vertical machining center. But the vertical machining center workpiece clamping, positioning is convenient; cutting tool movement track is easy to observe, debugging program inspection and measurement is convenient, can find problems in time, stop processing or modification; cooling conditions are easy to establish, cutting fluid can directly reach the tool and machining surface; three coordinate axes and cartesian coordinate system match, feel intuitive and pattern angle of view, chip easy to remove and drop, avoid scratching the machined surface. Compared with the corresponding horizontal machining center, the structure is simple, the occupation area is small, and the price is low.
The above is the use of vertical machining center, hope to help you.
