What is Turning and Milling Machine?

Composite machining is one of the most popular machining processes in the world. This is an advanced manufacturing technology. Compound machining is to realize several different machining processes on one machine tool. The most widely used and most difficult compound machining is turning milling compound machining. Turning milling compound machining center is equivalent to the combination of a CNC lathe and a machining center.


At present, most of the turn milling complex machining is completed in the turning center, while the general turning center only changes the ordinary turret tool holder of the CNC lathe into the turret tool holder with the power tool, and the spindle adds the c-axis function.


Compared with conventional NC machining process, composite machining has outstanding advantages, mainly in the following aspects:

  • It shortens product manufacturing process chain and improves production efficiency.Turn milling compound machining can complete all or most of the processing procedures by one-time loading, thus greatly shortening the product manufacturing process chain.In this way,on the one hand, the production auxiliary time caused by the change of the fixture is reduced, and the manufacturing cycle and waiting time of the fixture are also reduced, which can significantly improve the production efficiency.
  • Reduce clamping times and improve machining accuracy. The reduction of the loading times avoids the error accumulation caused by the transformation of the positioning datum. At the same time, most of the current turning milling complex processing equipment has the function of online detection, which can realize the in-situ detection and accuracy control of key data in the manufacturing process, so as to improve the processing accuracy of products.
  • Reduce floor space and production cost. Although the price of a single turning milling complex processing equipment is relatively high, due to the shortening of manufacturing process chain and the reduction of equipment required for products, as well as the reduction of the number of tooling and fixtures, the floor area of workshops and equipment maintenance costs, it can effectively reduce the investment, production operation and management costs of the total fixed assets.
  1. High precision internal spindle is used in turning milling complex machining center
  2. Free mobile operation panel improves work efficiency
  3. The machine is mainly used for mass production of various small and complex parts, high-speed processing and diversified processing
  4. In particular, the long and thin complex process can be processed and formed at one time, and the automatic feeding device can be configured to improve the efficiency
  5. Material details: cutting, copper, iron, aluminum alloy, stainless steel, Teflon and other materials
