Many small partners do not know enough about gantry milling machines and gantry machining centers, and they all have more or fewer doubts. Are they the same? Where is the difference? Today I will tell you about it!
What is the difference between a gantry milling machine and a machining center?
1. Ordinary gantry milling machine: Generally, there is no CNC system and no tool magazine.
