The advantages and disadvantages of the structure of horizontal machining center

Introduction of horizontal machining center

The main axis of the horizontal machining center is parallel to the worktable. The worktable is a square indexing turntable or CNC turntable. It is suitable for processing box-type workpieces. It can process multiple sides by joint movement of multiple coordinates. Complex types of artifacts. Common horizontal machining centers are three linear motion coordinates plus a rotary motion coordinate (rotary table). The editor mainly introduces the advantages and disadvantages of the horizontal machining center today.

Advantages of horizontal machining center structure

Compared with the vertical machining center, the horizontal machining center is easier to evacuate chips during machining of the workpiece, and is more beneficial to the processing of complex depressions and mold cavity. Because of the structural advantages of the horizontal machining center, the horizontal machining center The machining center can process large workpieces. Simply put, the workpieces that are difficult or impossible to be processed by the vertical machining center can be processed on the horizontal machining center.

Disadvantages of horizontal machining center structure

There are advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantages of the horizontal machining center are large area, complicated structure, more expensive than the vertical machining center, inconvenient when debugging the program of the horizontal machining center, and the tool trajectory during machining is not suitable for observation The loading and unloading of the workpiece is inconvenient, and the processed workpiece is not easy to measure;

In summary, from the advantages of the horizontal type plus center, it can be seen that the horizontal machining center is more suitable for processing box-type workpieces, and the peripheral surface of the box-type workpiece can be processed. However, there are many inconveniences in program debugging, tool path observation, workpiece loading and unloading, and workpiece measurement.
