What Is The Difference Between CNC Milling Machines And CNC Lathes

Apr 29, 2019

Lathes are turning machines for turning rotating parts. On the lathe, bits, reamers, reamers, taps, dies and knurling tools can also be processed. Lathes are mainly used for machining axles, discs, sleeves and other parts with revolving surfaces. They are the most widely used machine tools in machinery manufacturing and repair plants. Rotary machines such as milling machines and drilling machines are drawn from the lathe. In Hongkong and other places in China, there are also people called the rotary bed.

Milling machines refer to machine tools that mainly use milling cutters to process various surfaces on workpieces. Usually, the rotary movement of milling cutter is the main movement, and the movement of workpiece (and) milling cutter is feed movement. It can process planes and grooves, and can also process various surfaces, gears and so on. Milling machine is a machine tool for milling workpiece by milling cutter. In addition to milling planes, grooves, teeth, threads and spline axes, the milling machine can also process more complex surfaces, which is more efficient than the planer, and is widely used in the machinery manufacturing and repair departments. Milling machine is a widely used machine tool, in milling machine can be machined plane (horizontal surface, vertical surface), groove (key slot, T groove, swallow tail groove, etc.), tooth parts (gear, spline shaft, sprocket good, spiral surface (screw, spiral groove) and various surfaces. In addition, it can also be used for machining and cutting off the surface and inner hole of the revolving body. When the milling machine is working, the workpiece is installed on the worktable or on the top class accessories. The milling cutter rotates mainly, with the feed movement of the worktable or milling head, the workpiece can get the required surface. Because of the Multi Tool interrupted cutting, the milling machine has higher productivity. A machine tool for milling a workpiece with a milling cutter. In addition to milling planes, grooves, teeth, threads and spline axes, the milling machine can also process more complex surfaces, which is more efficient than the planer, and is widely used in the machinery manufacturing and repair departments.
