Refers to the machining center where the spindle axis is perpendicular to the table.
Vertical machining center
It is suitable for processing complex parts such as plate, disc, mold and small shell. Vertical machining centers perform milling, boring, drilling, tapping and cutting threads. The vertical machining center is at least three-axis and two-linkage, and generally can realize three-axis three-linkage. Some can be controlled by five axes and six axes. The height of the vertical machining center column is limited, and the processing range of the box type workpiece is reduced, which is a disadvantage of the vertical machining center. However, the vertical machining center has convenient workpiece clamping and positioning; the cutting tool movement track is easy to observe, the debugging program is easy to check and measure, the problem can be found in time, and the shutdown processing or modification can be performed; the cooling condition is easy to establish, and the cutting fluid can directly reach the tool and the machining surface; The three coordinate axes are in agreement with the Cartesian coordinate system, and the sense is intuitive and consistent with the pattern viewing angle, and the chips are easily removed and dropped to avoid scratching the processed surface. Compared with the corresponding horizontal machining center, the structure is simple, the floor space is small, and the price is low.
