What is the turn-milling compound center?
The turning-milling compound center is an advanced cutting method. It uses the combined movement of milling cutter rotation and workpiece rotation to realize the cutting of the workpiece so that the workpiece can meet the requirements in terms of shape accuracy, position accuracy, and integrity—machined surface. Turning and milling composite machining is not simply combining the two machining methods of turning and milling into one machine tool, but the use of turning and milling composite motions to complete various surface processing, a new cutting theory, and technology.
The compound machine tool of the turning-milling compound center manufacturer has not been clearly defined in the world, and it is in the process of innovation and development. Compound processing is also called complete processing and multi-functional processing. The early machining centers were called compound machining machines. However, with the continuous development and progress of compound processing technology, compound processing machine tools are fundamentally different from the previously mentioned compound processing machine tools.
The compound processing machine tool completes various processing procedures through a clamping part, shortens the processing time, and improves processing accuracy, so users receive it well. CNC turning and milling compound machine tools are the primary compound processing machine tools. They usually implement face milling, tapping, slot milling, and other milling processes on CNC lathes. They have complex functions such as turning, milling, and boring. They can realize one-time clamping and all processing Conceptually complete.
The movement of the turning-milling compound center machine tool includes milling cutter rotation, workpiece rotation, milling cutter axial feed, and radial feed. According to the relative position of the workpiece rotation axis and the tool rotation axis, the turning-milling compound machining can be divided into axial turning-milling, orthogonal turning-milling, and general turning-milling. Axial turning-milling and orthogonal turning-milling are two widely used turning and milling processing methods. Since the milling cutter is parallel to the axis of rotation of the workpiece, it can process the outer cylindrical surface and the inner hole surface.
The turning-milling compound center is perpendicular to the axis of rotation of the milling cutter and the workpiece, and the inner hole diameter is small and cannot be machined in the hole. However, the longitudinal stroke of the tool is not restricted when machining the cylindrical surface, and a more extensive longitudinal feed can be used. Therefore, it is more efficient when processing cylindrical surfaces.
