Specialized machines like these are what makes make us at Cheetah Precision one of the most in-demand full-service manufacturers of precision machined parts in the entire country.
What is a Horizontal Milling Machine?
These sophisticated metal shaping machines look similar to our versatile vertical precision milling machines turned on their side. This position gives these machines an advantage over vertical milling machines. Horizontal milling machines take on more complicated tasks than those done on vertical milling machines. Its horizontal positioning also allows it to be more aggressive when removing material from a piece of metal.
With their enhanced computer controls, horizontal milling machines can also quickly handle large volume projects despite their complexity. These machines have been around longer than their vertical milling cousins.
These can perform their job utilizing a rotating spindle. The spindle fits with a variety of cutting heads to accomplish different tasks. They are used mainly for shaping, routing, boring, and drilling metals, and are precise enough to be used on even softer solid materials too.
The product placed on the machine’s table is held in place by an extremely strong vice grip type device. Just like vertical milling machines, these, too, come with both turret mill and bed mill style machines.
