General milling machines are categorized into two types: vertical and horizontal.
In a vertical milling machine, the tool axis is aligned parallel to the machining plane, whereas in a horizontal milling machine, the tool axis is perpendicular to the machining plane.
A boring and milling machine combines both boring and milling operations into one machine. This means that the machine is equipped with both a boring tool and a milling cutter.
Introduction to boring and milling machine
The boring and milling machine combines the capabilities of boring and milling machines and is mainly used for boring and milling operations.
Based on automation levels, it is classified into three categories: traditional boring and milling machine, precision boring and milling machine, and CNC (Computer Numerical Control) boring and milling machine.
In terms of layout, it is further divided into vertical boring and milling machine, horizontal boring and milling machine, and floor boring and milling machine.
Currently, the CNC horizontal boring and milling machine is the most rapidly developing type of boring and milling machine.
The primary sources for imported equipment are primarily from Europe, the United States, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea.
Domestic manufacturers have also seen significant growth in this field. With support from national policies, relevant equipment manufacturers have made great strides and the gap with international competitors is narrowing.
Introduction to horizontal boring and milling machine
The machine boasts high precision, efficiency, and exceptional processing capabilities. It utilizes absolute coordinates, eliminating the need for long-distance initial point regression operations, thereby reducing non-machining time.
The machine features five-axis (X, Y, Z, W, and B-axis) control and four-axis simultaneous control, allowing for positioning of the table at any angle with the B-axis function.
It is suitable for surface machining of workpieces and requires only a single installation and adjustment. The rotary table ensures precise positioning and mutual precision of each machining surface.
With an upgraded magazine tool, the machine can be transformed into a machining center. It is applicable for processing a wide range of large cabinets and cylinders.
The machine is suitable for various industries, including construction machinery, wind power, ships, aircraft, locomotives, automobiles, and machine tools.
