Mazak Vertical Machining Centers offer a wide range of specifications including the machine equipped with #40 spindle for high-speed cutting, and with #50 spindle for high-torque, heavy-duty cutting.
What is Vertical Machining?
Vertical Machining, also known as milling, relies on rotary cutters to remove metal from a workpiece. Vertical machining occurs on a vertical machining center (VMC), which employs a spindle with a vertical orientation. With a vertically oriented spindle, tools stick straight down from the tool holder, and often cut across the top of a workpiece.
