Horizontal Machining Center (HMC)

What is horizontal machining center?


Horizontal machining center refers to a machining center with the spindle axis parallel to the worktable, which is mainly suitable for processing box-like parts. Its working principle is that after the workpiece is clamped once on the machining center, the computer can automatically select different tools, automatically change the spindle speed of the machine tool, and complete the multi-process processing of multiple faces of the workpiece in sequence. His advantage is that it can greatly improve production efficiency, but it occupies a large area and high cost.


What is vertical machining center?


The CNC machining center uses the CNC control system to generate digital signals to drive the milling machine to perform precision machining. The structure of the CNC machining center is that the Z-axis is the rotation of the tool spindle, the workpiece is moved in the XY plane, and milling is performed from top to bottom. For a small number or a large number of productions, the CNC machining center can be economically processed, and the advantage is the cost of the circular milling cutter. High economic and metal cutting rate, multi-blade cutting in a very short time. CNC machining center technology main projects include face milling, surface milling, groove milling, gear milling, and cam milling, as well as the use of forming milling cutters to complete complex contours in one milling, for mechanical production, mold production or tool production operations. In terms of it, it is an indispensable tool for work.
