10 Ways to Improve Productivity on Vertical Machining Centres

Vertical machining centre refers to the spindle for the vertical state of the machining centre, the structure of the form of a fixed column, the table for the rectangular, no indexing rotary function, suitable for processing discs, sets, plate parts, which generally has three linear motion axis, and can be installed on the table along the horizontal axis of rotation of a rotary table, used to process helix type parts.

In industrial production, Vertical machining centre is a commonly used high-precision machining equipment, which plays an important role in many industries. However, how to improve the working efficiency of machining centres and bring out their maximum potential has always been a concern for companies and operators. In this article, we will introduce 10 ways to help you improve the working efficiency of Vertical machining centres.

Firstly, plan your production schedule wisely. Make a clear production plan, rationally arrange all work tasks to ensure that the machining centre is fully utilized, and avoid production task conflicts and delays.

Secondly, optimise the process flow. Through the analysis and optimisation of the machining process, reduce the number of machining steps and unnecessary procedures to improve machining efficiency.

Thirdly, choose the right tool. Tool selection has an important impact on machining efficiency. According to the specific machining tasks, select the appropriate tool type and specifications to ensure the reasonable distribution of cutting force and the balance of cutting load.

Fourth, correctly set the processing parameters. Reasonable setting of machining parameters, such as cutting speed, feed rate and depth of cut, etc., in order to maximize the performance of the machining centre and ensure the quality of machining.

Fifth, regular inspection and maintenance equipment. Regular inspection of the machining centre’s key components and systems, and timely maintenance and repair to ensure that the equipment is always in the best working condition.

Sixth, improve the skills of operators. Train operators to improve their skill level and operating experience so that they can operate the machining centre faster and more efficiently.

Seventh, use a reliable tool clamping system. The way the tool is clamped has a significant impact on machining results and efficiency. Use a reliable tool clamping system to ensure tool stability and accuracy.

Eighth, reasonable arrangement of equipment maintenance time. Reasonable arrangement of equipment maintenance time in the production plan, to avoid production interruptions due to equipment failure, to ensure the continuity of production.

Ninth, strengthen the degree of automation of equipment. Through the introduction of automated equipment and systems, improve the degree of automation of the machining centre, reduce manual operation and intervention, and improve production efficiency.

Finally, timely adoption of new technology and new equipment. With the continuous progress of science and technology, the introduction of new technologies and equipment can greatly improve the working efficiency of machining centres. Timely adoption of new technology and new equipment, so that enterprises are always in the advanced production level.

To sum up, through rational planning of production plan, optimising process flow, selecting suitable tools, correctly setting machining parameters, regularly checking and maintaining equipment, improving operators’ skills and using reliable tool clamping system.
