How To Choose A Vertical Machining Center?

How to choose a vertical machining center depends on your situation and requirements. For example, do you need new or used equipment for your daily machining needs? What is your capital budget? What kind of order is dealt with in peacetime? Which are the most qualified or most used processes, and so on.

Once you’ve determined the type of device configuration you need, you can view all aspects of performance.
1. Spindle unit.

The spindle unit is the bridge between the tool and the workpiece and is a key component of the entire plant. The contact between the tool and the workpiece is the greatest guarantee of precision machining. The price of a spindle unit usually depends on two things, one is the speed of the computer and the other is the cooling method.
2. CNC system
The CNC system is the head of the machining center and the headquarters of the machining center. It can be said that the CNC system is the core component of the larger price gap. The price of imported CNC system is higher, and the national CNC system is cheaper. At present, the imported system on the market is FANUC, and Mitsubishi and Siemens are relatively common. Domestic systems, such as Huazhong CNC, Guangzhou Kai Beijing Endi are all good choices.
3. ATC.
ATC are part of milling and cutting operations for machining centrally stored tools that drill directly into the workpiece. This tool is the executor of all instructions of the machining center. The magazines of common tools are divided into magazines and magazines. The ATC with the current price difference is reflected in the number of tools and the speed of tool change. The tool changer is equipped with a robot that can be used to perform tool changes in about three seconds. It is also called a manipulator and is more expensive than loading bucket tools.
In addition, be sure to pay attention to the external diameter of the protection circuit, bearings, etc.

if you want to use it effectively.


Several main points of selection:


1. Accuracy, including positioning accuracy and repeat positioning accuracy, this is very important;
2. Spindle motor, including maximum speed, 30 minutes and continuous maximum power and maximum torque;
3. Rapid traverse speed and feed speed as well as lead screw and track form;
4. The processing stroke range, the maximum load-bearing capacity and the maximum number of tools, etc.
The last thing is to see whether the brand can keep up with the local after-sales service. No matter how good the quality of the machine tool is, there will be a day when it will be broken, because the machine tool has a lifespan just like people. Timely after-sales can reduce downtime and minimize losses!
Take the samples of various machine tool manufacturers for a comparison, and the good and the bad will come out.
As for recommendations, it depends on your budget! Different brands have different prices. BORUI’s machining centers are of good quality and cheap.
