Explanation of the term "vertical machining center (VMC)"

A vertical machining centre (or just VMC machine) is a cutting tool for metalworking. It differentiates itself from a lathe or milling machine because its tools are automatically operated. The only human intervention required is for loading and unloading. The vertical machining centers work following a programme, which is adjusted according to the shape of the workpiece. Thereby, the individual machining centres are differentiated according to their complexity.

  • Automatic processing of the workpiece
  • Cheap to acquire and fast processing time

A CNC vertical machining centre can process a workpiece for any desired outcome. If high numbers of simple structured workpieces need to be processed, it makes sense to think of an alternative method because this would be too expensive. A vertical machining centre only processes the workpieces vertically. This means that they are more affordable and they process the workpieces faster than a 5-axis milling machine would. They are more robust, because they have fewer movable parts. Affordability, quick processing and their robust construction mean that the price for the individual workpieces fall, and the wear and tear on the machine is lower.

Composition of a vertical machining centre

A VMC machine works with a spindle and a mobile panel, which is where the workpiece is clamped in. The workpiece is guided towards the spindle by the mobile support panel. The spindle can only move in the Z-direction (vertically). Movement in the X and Y axis is undertaken by the panel. This is used to produce workpieces with simple structures; complex structures cannot be produced using a vertical machining centre. Because the spindle is as robust as that of a 5-axis milling machine, the wear and tear on a vertical machining centre is lower.

Working with a vertical machining centre

Negligent handling of a vertical machining centre can quickly lead to expensive damages. The operator needs to be able to write and interpret a CNC programme correctly, in order to be able to intervene when it does not run to plan. For example, if the workpiece is being brought towards the spindle at the wrong speed, this could cause damages to all the components.

The operator requires training as a cutting machining operator so he is able to switch the milling tools. There is a high risk of injury associated with the switching of tools, some of which can be as sharp as razors. Therefore it is important that the operator of the VMC machine is a qualified member of staff. Trained cutting machine operators know how to correctly clean a vertical machining centre and what to peripherally look out for.
