Blog Vertical Machining Centers (VMCs)

Posted on 27th March, 2018

Many small and medium-sized CNC machine manufactures in India, satisfy the demand for most machining orders with vertical machining centers (VMC). They are by far the leading piece of precision machining equipment utilized in the market floor today. In a vertical machining center (VMC) the main spindle has a vertical position, whereas in the horizontal one the spindle is horizontally situated. In VMC the technology employs a spindle in a vertical orientation, working with gravity, allowing for the removal of material from the top of a workpiece.

VMC's possess 3, 4, or even 5-axis capability allowing for a range of possibilities in shaping parts. The addition of pallet changers can increase productivity by shortening cycle and load times. Vertical machining centers are less costly than horizontal machining centers (HMCs), which makes them attractive to small job shops as well as larger machining operations. There are some factors that influence the choice of using a vertical machining center, e.g. the form and size of the workpieces, the chip removal or the coolant lubricant. Regarding the efficiency, the flexibility and the automation potential, vertical machining center (VMC) have proved to be really good.

Premier vertical machining centers (VMC) are cost-effective, suitable for tool room, automobile component manufacturer and engineering industry.
