What is Horizontal Machining Centers

HG Machinetools Horizontal Machining Center is a drilling and milling machine where the main spindle is mounted on a horizontal axis in relation to the work table. Horizontal machining is used for mass production of metal components in all kinds of industries. Today, all modern machine tools are characterized by rapid tool change, high cutting efficiency and high precision performance.

HMCs have critical components as well as optional equipment. Examples include swivel heads, high-end spindles (SK, BT, HSK-A, etc.), cradle-type 4th axis, electric cutters, etc. Spindle speed rpm (revolutions per minute) can range from a few thousand to 50,000 rpm, depending on the size of the machine and the type of metal removal required (although even the most advanced models typically top out at around 20,000 rpm). HMCs can also be combined with automation devices such as robotic arms and pallet changers, making them essential for today's manufacturing industries that rely on CNC machining.

Applications of HG Machinetools Horizontal Machining Centers

They are especially effective on heavy parts as well as those that require machining from multiple sides. In addition to more efficient chip management, horizontal configurations typically offer faster processing times due to the ability of operators to change pallets. They are also usually associated with lower prices due to the overall reduced manpower and machining time. Our HMCs  are used for the production of heavy parts and components used in many industries such as:

• Commercial Applications          • Construction and maintenance            • Electronics                   • Medicine

• Security                     • Recreation                  • Transport                • Automotive              • Industrial and O.E.M.
