Bed mill for workshops and industry

A bed type milling machine (also known as plano type milling machine or just bed mill) is made out of a stable, generally low-vibration machine bed, upon which the workpiece is placed. A variety of clamping methods using a clamping slot and clamping claw, and the corresponding screws, are used for the workpiece. The clamping device can be mechanic, hydraulic, electric or implemented using compressed air. This construction of a bed mill allows large and heavy workpieces to be processed without a risk of tipping, which is what happens with quick clamping devices.
  • Available as horizontal, vertical and universal milling machines
  • The processing centre ensures a low-vibration machine bed
  • Processing of bigger and heavier machine casings and parts

For the most part, the machine bed forms the machine table at the same time, which ensures a low-vibration process and increases the durability of the cutting edge. Additionally, a plano type milling machine contains one or two machine stands that store the tool units. This means that components can be processed per clamping. The bed type milling machines are available as horizontal, vertical or universal milling machines.

Bed type milling machines have a long tradition

A bed mill has been used since the beginning of the industrialisation. Even today, conventional designs can be found in a variety of companies. Advances in technology have brought forward a range of variations that, for example, feature a mobile machine table and can be used with modern steering. Work tool heads containing several tools are in currently standard, in order to effectively process the workpiece.

Areas of application and examples of bed type milling machines

Plano type universal milling machines are used in many industrial sectors. Contrary to horizontal or vertical bed type milling machines, they can process the workpiece in all directions. Using two machine stands means that time is saved when processing very long workpieces per clamping. Most work tools with interchangeable heads are mounted on the two machine stands. They power the rotation of the milling work tool. One particularity of machines with two machine stands is that it is necessary to have collision detection. With CNC-operated machines, the programming of the machine allows for automatic shut down and axel drive in the collision area. This machine is commonly used for the industrial manufacturing of big and heavy machine casings and parts. A variety of tasks can be undertaken like the manufacturing of plane surfaces or bearing seats, and also the general processing of outer contours
