Different programming axis

 

Horizontal machining center:

It has 3 ~ 5 motion coordinates, commonly three linear motion coordinates plus one rotary motion coordinate. After one clamping, the workpiece completes the processing of the other four surfaces except the mounting surface and top surface.

 

Vertical machining center:

It has three linear motion coordinate axes, and a rotary table rotating along the horizontal axis can be installed on the workbench to process spiral parts.

 

Different programming methods

 

Horizontal machining centers:

APC tray automatic exchange device, worktable exchange for 45s, saving auxiliary working time.

 

Vertical machining centers:

During the automatic cycle of the machine tool, the manual loading, unloading and replacement of the tool magazine can be carried out.

 

Different programming and monitoring methods

 

Horizontal machining center:

Accurate oil supply. By adding a regulating valve, the oil can be transported to the lubrication points such as the main shaft and lead screw according to different needs.

 

Vertical machining center:

Automatic detection and monitoring. It can detect whether the lubricating oil is normal. If the lubrication is poor, it can alarm and stop the machine to avoid the abnormal operation of the equipment.

Note that each axis is different, because its main shaft is generally on the Y axis, while the vertical one is on the Z-axis, so attention should be paid to feeding or withdrawing, otherwise a machine collision accident will occur.
