The vertical machining centres are high-performance machines intended for complex chip machining. They are suitable for tool shops, for power machining and when equipped with a pallet changer, they also find their employment in the automotive industry. The work table, whose upper surface serves for workpiece clamping, is traveling in the longitudinal direction (X-axis) along guide-ways of the cross saddle. The cross saddle is moving along guide-ways of the base in the transverse direction (Y-axis). The spindle head moves in the vertical direction (Z-axis) along the guide-ways of the column. All guide-ways are formed by linear guides with rollers. Optionally, it is possible to equip the machines with the 4th of 5th CNC axis and with a wide range of other technological optional equipment.
The horizontal milling centres are equipped with a pallet changer with two pallets and a tool changer with automatic tool change function. The machines are intended for productive and complex machining of moulds, dies and workpieces of a flat or box shape made of steel, cast iron and light metal alloys clamped on the work table. They are suitable for mass production. They enable milling operations in three mutually perpendicular coordinate axes X, Y and Z. The rotary table (B-axis) enables machining from several sides.
The gantry-type machining centres are highly productive machines with wide range of application when machining complicated spatial shapes in three or five axes. Due to high dynamics, very high rigidity and damping characteristics of the machine structure, they enable utilization of HSC technologies advantages. The gantry-type machines have their spindle mounted in a motor spindle unit built-in in the sliding ram. All movements of the machine are realized by linear guide-ways with rollers. Measuring of position in the X, Y and Z axes is carried out directly by absolute measuring units.
The multipurpose machining centres of upper gantry-type enable complex machining of spatially complicated and technologically demanding workpieces as well as of combined shapes, both within five-axis milling operations and full-featured turning operations. The find their use not only in the branches of classical engineering but also in the automotive, plastics and pressing industry. Thanks to their ability to machine in up to six axes with simultaneous possibility of turning, they find their use in demanding areas of engineering and aviation.
