Which Parts are Suitable for Vertical Machining Centers?

The vertical machining centers refer to the machining center with the spindle in the vertical state. And the structure is mostly column. The worktable is rectangular and has no indexing rotation function. It is suitable for processing discs, sleeves and plate parts. It generally has three linear motions. A coordinate axis and a rotary table that rotates along the horizontal axis can be mounted on the table to machine spiral parts.


And the vertical machining centers easy to install, easy to operate, easy to observe and process, easy to debug, and widely used. However, due to the height of the column and the limitation of the tool changer, it is impossible to process parts that are too high. When machining the cavity or the concave profile, the chips are not easily discharged. In severe cases, the tool will be damaged, the processed surface will be damaged, and the processing will be effected smoothly.


The vertical machining center has good performance, a high degree of automation, and special parts that are difficult to machine or can’t be processed by ordinary machine tools.Now, let me introduce to you which parts can be processed by the vertical machining center.


1. High processing precision, complex shape, and structure, especially parts with complex curves, curved contours, or box or housing parts without an open inner cavity.


2, Must complete the milling, drilling, reaming, boring or tapping and other parts of the process in a single clamping.


3, The price is expensive, the rough is difficult to obtain.


4. Parts that are low in productivity, strong in labor, and difficult to control in quality on ordinary machine tools.


5. Parts used for multiple varieties, multiple specifications, and single-piece small batch production.


The above are the parts that are suitable for machining in the vertical machining center. These parts are difficult to machine on ordinary machine tools. The machining with vertical machining center can improve the machining efficiency and accuracy. And can reduce the damage rate of the parts.
