The vertical machining centre, also known as VMC, is an increasingly popular and indispensable tool for precision engineering companies and the result of continuously improved technology. Efficient and suitable for a variety of needs, as well as being useful for its automation potential, this machine differs from the horizontal machining centre (HMC) in its spindle position. In fact, both of them hold milling cutters in the spindle, but in the vertical machining centre the spindle axes are oriented vertically, while in the HMC horizontally.

In addition, VMC machines are generally cheaper than HMC tools, making them more attractive for small businesses. Laxmi has the best used vertical machining centres available, which have been thoroughly overhauled and refurbished, and whose features we will now illustrate.

A special milling machine

As already mentioned, VMC machines, using a spindle rotation on a vertical axis, are mainly used to cut metal parts and are enclosed. Vertical machining centres allow a high degree of automation, as they are regulated by a CNC (Computer Numerical Control) controller. This tool, being automated, significantly reduces the probability of human error, improving the precision and speed of cutting processes.

In vertical machining centres, the metal components being machined are locked in a mobile panel, capable of moving in every direction. It is this panel that handles movement on the X and Y axes, while the high-speed spindle moves on the Z axis. This spindle, with its high durability and sturdiness, reduces wear to a minimum thanks to the rationalization of movements ensured by the CNC control. In this way, machining is made very accurately and fast, also guaranteeing the performance of burr-free cutting even after several years of operation. The vertical machining centre is a recommended tool for relatively simple part creation. When more complex machining operations are required, the purchase of a horizontal machining centre is recommended.

Only the best quality for our costumers

A vertical machining centre requires a good level of expertise. It is essential that the operators of a VMC are always certified and know how to maintain and keep this tool clean to ensure optimum performance. Therefore, in-depth expertise in the programming of a CNC controller is essential, particularly when fast intervention is required to resolve emergency situations.
