How to distinguish between gantry machining center and vertical machining center?

The gantry machining center and the vertical machining center are both vertical machining centers!

The main features of the vertical: the x and y axes are combined, and the Z axis is moved up and down the column, which is suitable for small precision molds and parts processing. The larger one has a height of about 4 meters, and the model can be determined according to the specific physical object.

Main features of the gantry: The Z-axis support structure is different. The Y-axis is placed between the two columns, which increases the load and processing range of the workbench.

1. Different support structures:

The vertical machining center refers to the machining center where the spindle axis and the worktable are perpendicularly arranged. The vertical x and Y axes are combined, and the Z axis is moved up and down the column, which is suitable for small precision molds and parts processing. The larger one has a height of about 4 meters, and the model can be determined according to the specific physical object.

The gantry machining center refers to the machining center where the spindle axis is perpendicular to the workbench. The Z-axis support structure of the gantry is different. The Y-axis is placed between the two columns, which increases the load and processing range of the workbench.

2, different uses:

The gantry machining center is mainly suitable for machining large parts with large workpiece sizes. The vertical machining center is mainly used for processing complex parts such as plates, discs, molds and small shells with a small processing range.
