The workpiece in the machining center after a clamping, the digital control system can control the machine tool according to different machining processes, automatically select and replace the cutter, automatic machine tool spindle speed, feed speed and the tool relative to the workpiece movement trajectory and other auxiliary functions, in turn, complete the workpiece on multiple processes processing. And there are a variety of knife or knife selection function, so that the production efficiency greatly improved.
The machining center has reduced the clamping of the workpiece due to the centralized and automatic knife-changing of the process. Measurement and machine tool adjustment time, so that the machine tool cutting time to achieve the machine start time of 80%% (common machine tool only for 15), but also reduce the working process between the workpiece turnover, handling and storage time, shorten the production cycle, has obvious economic effect. The machining center is suitable for the parts shape more complex, the precision requirements are higher, the product replacement frequent medium and small batch production.
Compared with the vertical machining center, the horizontal machining center is complex, the area is large, the price is also higher, and the horizontal machining center is inconvenient to observe when machining, parts clamping and measurement are inconvenient, but the processing is easy to chip and the processing is advantageous.
