Many different kinds of milling machine, the most common is horizontal milling machine and vertical milling machine (universal). The difference is that the former spindle level Settings, the later vertical Settings.
1. horizontal universal milling machine
X6132 horizontal universal milling machine’s main components and functions of the following
(1) Machine bed supporting and connecting parts, the guide rail bearing beam top surface level, of the side rail for lifting platform mobile. In a spindle machine bed and the main movement speed change system and lubrication system.
(2) beam It can move around on the top of the machine bed guide rail hanger is installed on it, used to supporting cutter bar.
(3) hollow spindle (see figure 2), the front have a cone hole, used to install the cutter bar and cutting tools.

(4) the worktable t-slot, can be installed directly artifacts, also can install attachments or fixture. It can move along the guide rail of turntable longitudinal and feed.
(5) the turntable turntable lies between the workbench and horizontal slip board, the following are connected to the horizontal slip board with bolt, loosen the screw can make the turntable driven worktable rotation Angle in the plane of the horizon (maximum turned around 45 °).
(6) longitudinal workbench Longitudinal table driven by vertical screw on the guide rail of turntable for vertical movement, to drive the new on the surface of the workpiece for longitudinal feed. Taiwan T slot to install fixture or on the surface of the workpiece.
(7) lateral workbench Transverse workbench is located in the lift table to the horizontal guide rail, can drive the longitudinal workbench in transverse feed together.
(8) lifting platform Lifting platform can make vertical movement along the bedway, adjust the workbench to the interval of milling cutter.
Behind this milling machine beams can be moved to the bed, at the end of the spindle is installed on the vertical milling head, can perform a vertical milling processing.
2.Vertical milling machine
As shown in figure 3, vertical milling machine is similar to many parts of horizontal milling machine. Machine bed is different: it has no top guide rail, also do not have beam, but the upside is a vertical milling head, before its role is to install the main shaft and milling cutter. Usually vertical milling machine between machine bed and vertical milling head and rotary table, can make the spindle inclined at an Angle, cant milling. Vertical milling machine can be used to bore.
