Vertical machining relies on revolving cutters to eliminate metal from a work piece. It is also recognized as milling. Vertical machining occurs on the vertical machining center (VMC) that employs a shaft using a vertical orientation. With an upright oriented spindle, apparatuses stick straight down from tool holder, and cut across the top of a work piece. These machining is preferred where three-axis (3 axis) work is done on a single face as in mold and die work. 3-axis vertical machining works on the 3 axes, It is one of the most generally used techniques to form mechanical parts, and can be used for automatic & interactive operation for instance milling slots, drilling holes, and cutting sharp edges. 3-axis VMC have been leaders in machine tools in aerospace, medical, die mold and energy industries. The key benefits are included high efficiency, high spindle speed & rapid feed speed, increased productivity, stability completing heavy-duty cutting and high volume or low volume applications.
