CNC Horizontal Boring Mills
CNC Horizontal Boring Mills represent newest technology that is present in the global marketplace. Because of its modern design, the CNC universal boring and milling machines allow for efficient processing of large and heavy work pieces while utilizing high precision and quality of operation. Modular designs allow configuration of the machines according to requirements. Modern precision manufacturing requires extreme dimensional accuracy and surface finish which is quite difficult to produce manually. In most cases, the precision requirements of the clients cannot be provided even by expert operators and in cases where it is possible, it will likely take them a lot of time which increases the costs of production. CNC technology has allowed automation of boring mills with more flexibility in handling production of parts.
Advantages of CNC technology on Horizontal Boring Mills
Automation enhances the productivity of a machine shop and provides an excellent solution so that they can compete with larger and better known corporations. It is a fact that there are many small and middle-sized machine shops that focus on quality and precision. CNC technology on Horizontal Boring Mills provides advantages of increased throughput and a range of improved capabilities while preserving a machine shops reputation for accuracy and high quality. Though known largely for heavy machining, capabilities for smaller work are also provided by Horizontal Boring Mills with digital servo motors, drives and external scales that can work accurately and make efficient use of time. All information can be saved from job orders and when another request for similar parts is received, the existing programs are used and the work proceeds much faster. The CNC Horizontal Boring Mills also have more flexibility to work other jobs or specific parts based on the demands of the customer.
Part programming of the CNC Horizontal Boring Mills
A part program is set of instructions that are usually called blocks that refer to a segment of the machining operation that is performed through a machine tool. Each block may contain several codes in a sequence that provide machine parameters such as feed rate, spindle speed, tool number, too offset compensation parameters and many more. Codes for initiating machine tools functions like starting and stopping of the spindle, on and off control of the coolant flow and optimal stop require tool numbers to perform machining in a desired sequence. Each of the codes can configure a particular aspect of the Horizontal Boring Mills that will be used during machining of the particular segment that the block programmed.
