The difference between the gantry machining center and the horizontal machining center

Aug. 21, 2019

The gantry machining center refers to the machining center where the spindle axis is perpendicular to the table, and is mainly suitable for processing large parts.

The horizontal machining center refers to the machining center where the spindle axis and the worktable are arranged in parallel, and is mainly suitable for processing box-type parts. The working principle is that after the workpiece is clamped once on the machining center, the computer can automatically select different tools, automatically change the spindle speed of the machine tool, and sequentially complete the multi-process machining on multiple faces of the workpiece. The advantage is that it can greatly improve production efficiency, but it has a large footprint and high cost.

Machining Center: CNC milling machine is an automatic processing equipment developed on the basis of general milling machine. The processing technology of the two is basically the same, and the structure is similar. CNC milling machines are divided into two categories: without a tool magazine and with a tool magazine. The CNC milling machine with a tool magazine is also called a machining center.
