I believe that people in the machining industry are no strangers to vertical machining centers. The share of vertical machining centers in China's CNC machine tool market is as high as 50%. It is conceivable that vertical machining centers are widely used in various processing enterprises. It has been favored by many processing enterprises. The vertical machining center is developed on the basis of the traditional CNC milling machine. It integrates all the features and functions of the CNC milling machine and also integrates the functions of many other CNC machine tools, such as boring machines, drilling machines, milling machines, grinding machines, and other machine tools.
1. Automatic tool change function
The structure of the vertical machining center is basically the same as that of the CNC milling machine, and the processing technology is basically similar, but the biggest difference between the two is that the vertical machining center is equipped with an automatic tool changer and a tool magazine, while the CNC milling machine does not have this function. The automatic tool changer and tool magazine that comes with the vertical machining center makes the machining center have the function of automatic tool change and can enter the automatic tool change function according to the tool used during processing. That is to say, the vertical machining center can change the tool at will to perform different processing procedures on the workpiece.
2. Clamping the workpiece at one time can quickly realize the processing of multiple processes
From the previous functional point, the vertical machining center has the function of automatic tool change. With this function, it can complete the processing of multiple processes in one clamping process, such as drilling, milling, tapping, and tapping by cnc drilling and tapping machine.
3. The function of expanding the number of axes
Because the traditional three-axis machining center cannot meet the customer's product processing requirements, such as machining impellers, blades, shafts, propellers, and other complex curved workpieces, it cannot be processed with a three-axis vertical machining center, so according to customer product requirements, it is necessary to Expand four-axis or five-axis capabilities. As can be seen from the above description, the vertical machining center has the function of axis expansion, which can expand the function of four axes, five axes, and even multi-axis.
4. One clamping can process multiple processing surfaces
It can be seen from the above that the vertical machining center can expand the number of axes, so after the vertical machining center expands the number of axes, the workpiece can be processed multi-faceted at the same time, which can not only avoid the accuracy error caused by multiple clamping but also It also saves a lot of time for manual clamping of workpieces.
