What type of tool magazine does the horizontal machining center use?
Horizontal machining center means that the main shaft and the worktable are set in parallel. This kind of machining center is relatively rare in the market because there are fewer users who buy it. Generally, there are more users who buy a vertical machining center. In general, the conventional horizontal machining center has three linear coordinate axes plus a table rotary axis, and its table is square. The horizontal machining center can clamp the workpiece at one time and can complete the processing of other surfaces except the mounting surface and the top surface. It is most suitable for processing box parts. Today, Silpu CNC mainly introduces what type of tool magazine is used in the horizontal machining center.
What are the tool magazines of the machining center:The tool magazine of the machining center can be divided into four types according to the shape of the tool magazine, namely, the hat type tool library, the umbrella type tool library, the disc type tool library and the chain type tool library. These four types of tool magazines are commonly used in machining centers. The tool change speed, tool change method, and tool capacity of these four types of tool magazines are generally the same. The faster tool change speed is the disc type tool magazine and Chain-type tool magazine: The chain-type tool magazine has the largest tool capacity. The specifications of each tool magazine are different, so the tool capacity is also different.
Disc type tool magazine horizontal machining center Chain type tool magazine horizontal machining center:Tool magazines commonly used in horizontal machining centers include umbrella-type tool magazines, disc-type tool magazines, and chain-type tool magazines. These three types of tool magazines are commonly used in horizontal machining centers. Among them, the most commonly used is the disc type. Tool magazines, chain-type tool magazines, and umbrella-type tool magazines are rarely used in horizontal machining centers. Disc-type tool magazines are commonly used in small horizontal machining centers, while chain-type tool magazines are commonly used in large horizontal machining centers.
