Zone Provides Insight into CNC Milling and Drilling Machines

The PM Machining Centers & Milling Machines Zone is a comprehensive collection of new product listings, case studies, feature articles and suppliers related to machining centers and CNC milling and drilling machines, including automatic toolchangers and clamps for workpieces.

A machining center is almost any CNC milling and drilling machine. These can include automatic toolchangers and a table that clamps a workpiece in place. The PM Machining Centers & Milling Machines Zone is a comprehensive collection of new product listings, case studies, feature articles and related suppliers related to this topic.

The tool, not the work, rotates in a machining center, with the orientation of the spindle as the most defining characteristic. VMCs generally favor precision while horizontal machining centers generally favor production. A five-axis machining center pivots the tool and/or the part in order to mill and drill at various orientations.

One article in the zone, “Moving Forward with Self-Directed Work Teams,” focuses on the Vanamatic Co. in Delphos, Ohio, and its efforts wrestling with “make or buy” decisions, technical training, process control and shop management. Read the article here
