A portal milling machine
is used in many areas of industry for the machining of material. This type of machine has a characteristic construction. A crossbar of adjustable height is positioned between two supports. This portal limits the maximum width of the workpiece.
- Height adjustable diagonal crossbar limits maximum workpiece size
- Effective machining of large surfaces
- Employment in machine construction and heavy industry
Quality Great offers Personalized The supports are either fixed or adjustable as well. The most common design includes an adjustable clamping table. With a portal milling machine large surfaces can be machined. This machine is especially well-suited to the face milling of large panels. Most machines have two additional milling heads on the supports to machine all sides in a single clamping operation. The portal milling machine is of a very rigid design. This enables very precise machining up to around 5/1000mm. During operation, vibration is very slight, enabling good dimensional accuracy and surface finish. Due to the stability of its design, the cutting-capacity for this variety of milling machine is also high.
