A milling machine is a machine tool that uses a milling cutter to mill a workpiece. In addition to milling planes, grooves, gear teeth, threads and spline shafts, milling machines can also process more complex profiles, with higher efficiency than planers, and are widely used in machinery manufacturing and repair departments. vertical milling machine is a type of milling machine. The vertical milling machine can also function like a drill press because the spindle is perpendicular to the table and can be lowered into the work piece. This article mainly introduces the vertical milling machine from the following aspects.

Here is the content list:

A brief introduction to vertical milling machines

Compared with the horizontal milling machine, the main difference between the vertical milling machine and the horizontal milling machine is the vertical arrangement of the spindle. In addition to the different spindle arrangement, the worktable can be lifted up and down. The milling cutter used in the vertical milling machine is relatively flexible and has a wide range of applications. End mills, machine-clamped cutter heads, drills, etc. can be used. It can be used for keyway milling, plane milling, boring, etc.

Types of vertical milling machines

(1) Gantry type milling machine: The machine body is arranged horizontally, and the columns and connecting beams on both sides form the gantry milling machine. The milling head is mounted on the beam and column and can move along its guide rails. Usually, the beam can move vertically along the guide rail of the column, and the worktable can move vertically along the guide rail of the bed. For large parts processing.

(2) Plane milling machine: a milling machine used for milling plane and forming surfaces, the bed is arranged horizontally, usually the worktable moves longitudinally along the bed guide, and the spindle can move axially. It has simple structure and high production efficiency.

(3) Copy milling machine: a milling machine that copies the workpiece. Generally used for machining complex shape workpieces.

(4) Lifting table milling machine: a milling machine with a lifting table that can move vertically along the guide rail of the bed. Usually, the worktable and the saddle installed on the lifting table can move longitudinally and laterally, respectively.

(5) Bed type milling machine: The worktable cannot be lifted and lowered, but can be moved longitudinally along the guide rail of the bed, and the milling head or column can be moved vertically.

(6) Special milling machines: such as tool milling machines: milling machines used for milling tools and molds, with high machining accuracy and complex machining shapes.

Features of vertical milling machine

The CNC system sets the automatic guide rail at one time, and the workpiece feeding, automatic measurement, automatic cutting, processing, unloading/loading/setting are carried out at the same time, which reduces the waiting time of the machine for manual operation, improves the production efficiency, and ensures high-precision size, verticality and parallelism.
