Many customers need to buy machining centers for heavy cutting, but they have no experience and can't start. They don't know which machining center to buy. Today, Taicheng CNC will answer all the machining centers for heavy cutting.
For machining centers for heavy cutting, we do not need to consider any small machining centers, high-speed machining centers, etc. These types of machining centers are either not large enough or have insufficient cutting force to meet the demand for heavy cutting. Therefore, it is more suitable to choose a large vertical machining center or a small gantry machining center for heavy cutting.
Not all large vertical machining centers are suitable for heavy cutting. Some large vertical machining centers that use BT40 spindles often have more than enough strength, so it is best to use large vertical machining centers with BT50 spindles, for example We have large-scale vertical machining centers of several models, including VMC1270, VMC1370 and VMC1680. This large-scale vertical machining center is very suitable for heavy cutting. Firstly, the stroke is large enough, the worktable area is large, and the hard rail provides better rigidity to the machine tool, which is conducive to maintaining accuracy and stability. The spindle motor power is large enough. Respond to most heavy cuts. There are bucket and knife arm magazines available to customers, and customers can choose according to actual needs. Different CNC systems provide the option to allow the operator to use the familiar CNC system, which is beneficial to the improvement of work efficiency.
The small gantry machining center can be said to be used for heavy cutting of large workpieces. The small gantry machining center is also known as the nemesis of large vertical machining centers because the small gantry machining center can handle most of the work of large vertical machining centers. The gantry structure of the small gantry machining center is a closed door structure, which is more stable than the C-type open structure of the large vertical machining center, and the large vertical machining center cannot process too high workpieces, and the small gantry machining center is here. The aspect is more advantageous. The small gantry machining center is stronger, it is derived from the ultra-short throat depth, and the ultra-short throat depth solves the weakest link of the gantry structure, making the machine tool more rigid. The tool magazine of the small gantry machining center is not the same as that of the vertical machining center. Most of them use the bucket type or the arm type tool magazine. However, due to the special structure of the small gantry machining center, the tool change time is twice that of the vertical machining center, and the tool change time is longer.
