Horizontal Mills – The horizontal mills can perform a number of applications in one setup, and their configuration allows for machining large parts. The arrangement of the horizontal boring mill allows for easy access and placement of the workpiece on the machine table. Large workpieces can be placed on the machine table with an overhead crane and can overhang the table if needed. The arrangement also allows for easy chip removal from the machining operation.
Large Part Horizontal Milling
We run five horizontal mills out of our shop. The largest of our horizontal mills has an operating window of 157″ in X and 92″ in Y. An auxiliary rotary table can be added to the mill for 4th axis milling, while a part is being rotated. This adaptation is used for machining parts such as fluted rolls and internal helical grooves inside bushings. Two of our horizontal mills have rotary tables, which allows for machining on different sides of the part in one setup.
