Classification of machining centers
Machining centers are usually classified by the relative positions of the spindle and the table, and are divided into horizontal, vertical and universal machining centers.
(1) Horizontal machining center: refers to a machining center where the axis of the spindle is set parallel to the table, and is mainly suitable for processing box parts.
(2) Vertical machining center: refers to a machining center where the axis of the spindle is perpendicular to the table. It is mainly suitable for processing complex parts such as plates, disks, molds and small shells.
(3) Universal machining center (also known as multi-axis linkage machining center): refers to a machining center that can control the coordinated change by processing the angle of the spindle axis and the rotation axis of the table to complete the processing of complex space curved surfaces. Suitable for machining impeller rotors, molds, cutting tools and other workpieces with complex space curved surfaces.
