How to distinguish between vertical machining center and horizontal machining center?

The machining centers we know on the market are classified into gantry machining centers, vertical machining centers, and horizontal machining centers. The longest seen on the market are vertical machining centers. You may rarely see horizontal machining centers. There may be doubts about the difference between the two devices. Today, ALLES CNC will briefly describe to you the difference:


1. The difference in structure The main difference between vertical and horizontal type is the different Z-axis structure. The vertical Z axis is processed by vertical downward movement, and the horizontal Z axis is processed by horizontal downward movement. This It is the main difference between vertical and horizontal.

2. The vertical work table is usually a T-slot work table with a cross slide structure. There are two sets of motion mechanisms responsible for the movement in the vertical direction. The work table for X-direction feed covers the guide rail for Y-direction feed. The horizontal worktable is only designed to move in X or Y direction. The worktable is generally a rotary worktable with dot matrix screw hole table, and it is relatively easy to choose the exchange type double worktable.


The above is the difference between the vertical machining center and the horizontal machining center shared by SHANDONG ALLES ENERGY TECHNOLOGY CO.,LTD. Customers who are interested in purchasing are welcome to come to consult.
