1.Vertical milling machine and horizontal milling machine are different in spindle arrangement. The spindle of vertical mill machine are upright vertical arrangement, but the spindle of horizontal miller are parallel arrangement.
2.Vertical milling machine and horizontal milling machine are different in working range. The work table of vertical mill machine can be elevated up and down, and its milling cutter are relatively flexible and e it used in a wide range. You can use vertical milling cutter, machining cutter and drilling head and so on. It can used on slot milling, milling plane and boring and so on. Horizontal mill machine can used these cutting tools too, but it isn’t so convenience, it mainly enhance the cutting tool by rack. (It concluds: side milling cutter, flake cutter), It can also be slot milling, milling plane and flake cutter and so on.
3.Vertical and horizontal milling machine are different in usage. They both have vertical milling head. Although its function and rigid isn’t so strong than vertical miller machine, but it can be enough to cope with milling machine processing. It makes the overall function of horizontal mill machine stronger than vertical mil machine. Vertical milling machine have no this feature, so it can’t process artifacts which suit to horizontal milling. The production rate of vertical mill machine tool is higher than horizontal mill machine.
So many self-employed people choose horizontal milling machine with vertical milling head, to save equipment investment. But vertical milling has many chorings, in fact, this way of hoizontal milling machine with vertical milling head is hanging a vertiacl milling head everyday as a vertical milling, as vertical mill machine is more suitable for instead. Horizontal mill machine is more used in processing of gear, spline, slotting, cutting and so on. High quality vertical milling machine tool can be used for machining plane processing, it can also process the workpiece with geometry. Such as mould.
