The horizontal machining center is one of the widely used CNC machine tools in the current industrial production industry. This is a kind of CNC machine tool with more complete functions, which integrates high-tech functions such as milling and boring, so that the horizontal machining center has a variety of processing Craft, its development represents the level of manufacturing in a country. Its main features are:
- 1. Fully enclosed protection:The horizontal machining center has a protective door. When processing, closing the protective door can effectively prevent personal injury accidents.
- 2. Using multiple tools, automatic tool exchange:The horizontal machining center is equipped with a tool magazine and an automatic tool changer. The required tools are loaded into the tool magazine before processing, and the tools can be automatically changed through program control during processing.
- 3. Concentration of processes and continuous processing:Horizontal cnc machining centers usually have multiple feed axes (more than three axes), even multiple spindles, and there are many linkage axes, such as three-axis linkage, five-axis linkage, seven-axis linkage, etc., so they can automatically complete multiple The processing of plane and multiple angle positions realizes high-precision processing of complex parts. Milling, boring, drilling, reaming, reaming, tapping and other processing can be completed in one clamping on the machining center, and the processes are highly concentrated.
- 4.high automation, high precision, high efficiency:Its spindle speed, feed rate and rapid positioning accuracy are high. Through the reasonable selection of cutting parameters, the cutting performance of the tool can be fully utilized, the cutting time is reduced, and the whole processing process is continuous, various auxiliary actions are fast, and the degree of automation is high. The auxiliary action time and downtime, therefore, the production efficiency of the horizontal machining center is very high.
- 5. Use multiple workbenches, the workbenches are automatically exchanged:If the horizontal machining center is equipped with an automatic exchange table, one table can be processed while the other table completes the clamping of the workpiece, which greatly reduces the auxiliary time and improves the processing efficiency.
- 6. Powerful functions, tending to compound processing:It has compound turning function, grinding function, etc. For example, the round table can drive the workpiece to rotate at a high speed. The tool only performs the main movement without feeding, and completes similar turning processing, which makes the horizontal machining center have a wider processing range.
- 7. Only under proper conditions can the best benefits be achieved:That is to say, the advantages of the horizontal machining center must be exerted in the use process to fully reflect the benefits. This is essential to the rational use of the horizontal machining center.
- 8. Powerful functions and high investment:Due to the high degree of intelligence, complex structure, and powerful functions of the horizontal machining center, the one-time investment and daily maintenance costs of the horizontal machining center are much higher than those of ordinary machine tools.
