Introduction of horizontal machining center
The main shaft and worktable of the horizontal machining center are parallel machining centers. Its worktable is a square indexing turntable or a CNC turntable. It is suitable for processing box-like workpieces. It can be processed by multi-coordinate joint motion processing on each side. Complex types of artifacts. Common horizontal machining centers are three linear motion coordinates plus one rotary motion coordinate (rotary table). The editor today mainly introduces the advantages and disadvantages of horizontal machining centers.
Advantages of horizontal machining center structure
Compared with the vertical machining center, the horizontal machining center is easier to remove the chips during the processing of the workpiece, and it is more advantageous for the processing of complex recesses and the mold cavity. Because the horizontal machining center has the advantages of the structure, the horizontal machining center has the advantages of the structure. Machining centers can process large workpieces. Simply put, workpieces that are difficult or impossible to be processed by vertical machining centers can be processed on horizontal machining centers.
Disadvantages of horizontal machining center structure
There are advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantages of the horizontal machining center are that it occupies a large area, its structure is complicated, and the price is more expensive than that of a vertical machining center. It is inconvenient to debug the program of the horizontal machining center. It is not suitable to observe the tool movement trajectory during processing. The loading and unloading of the workpiece is not convenient, and the processed workpiece is not easy to measure;
Based on the above, it can be seen from the advantages of the horizontal machining center that the horizontal machining center is more suitable for processing box-like workpieces, and can process the peripheral surface of box-like workpieces. However, there are many inconveniences in program debugging, tool path observation, workpiece loading and unloading, and workpiece measurement.
