The machining center is one of highly developed machine tools that can handle many precision CNC machining tasks. First of all, the machining centre was developed from machine tools for milling in the middle of the 20th century. The development of this particular type of machine tools is well developed in the industry. They are widely used in various industries and have made extensive efforts for industry.
Regarding the milling process of the CNC machining center, it is the machining process that uses a spinning tool to remove the workpiece material by advancing the tool into one or more workpieces. This processing method can be done in different directions. In addition to turning, milling also covers a wide variety of operations, ranging from single tiny parts to heavy and large milling tasks. Similar to turning, milling is one of the most commonly used machining methods, providing precise tolerances.
There are three main methods of constructing five-axis machine tools. Most machining angles can be achieved by the swinging head. This machine and other 4 + 1 and 3 + 2 types of machining centre are considered convenient, but the machining centre has more practical advantages. On the other hand, traditional machining centre is designed with at least three axes, namely x, y, and z.
The double-column CNC machining center belongs to highly developed machine tools that can handle a variety of heavy-duty CNC machining tasks due to its strong column design. First of all, the machine center was developed from a milling machine in the middle of the 20th century, and the development of this particular type of machine is progressing well in the industry.
The fixed column CNC machining center is a precision machine tool. Due to its strong column design, it can handle a variety of heavy machining tasks. There are moving column and fixed column models in the double column inventory.
The high-speed machining center is a machining centre model for multi tasks that can handle a variety of machining tasks where the spindle speed is significantly higher than at least 12,000 rpm. In the case of European models, the speed may even exceed 12,000.
The horizontal machining center is one of the machine models that have undergone high research and development. Because of its multi-tasking and convenient design, it can handle multiple processing tasks in one stop. First, the machine center evolved from the vertical milling machine design in the mid-20th century.
The moving column machining center is a highly developed machine. It is based on a double-column structure and can handle a variety of heavy-duty machining tasks due to its strong column design. The machine center evolved from the milling machine. After transformation, the development of this particular type of machine tool is progressing smoothly in the industry.
The vertical machining center is a highly modern milling machine. The development goal is to be able to complete multiple milling tasks on a single machine at a time. First, the machine center was developed from a milling machine in the United States for aerospace, and then the development of this particular type of machine is progressing smoothly in the industry. The machine center is widely used in all sectors of the industry except aerospace, and has made extensive industrial efforts for commercial purposes.
The machining center has the function of computer automatic tool change. Usually, the operator must change tools on the CNC machine center. However, the machining center has a replaceable arm. It can automatically retrieve and exchange tools from the tool library, and store the tools in the tool library during workpiece processing. This saves the time and effort required for the conversion of standard tools, and thus enables automation and energy-saving operations while reducing costs.
