What is Vertical lathe ?

The spindle of the vertical lathe is vertical and has a circular table on which the workpiece is mounted. As shown in the figure “Vertical Lathe”, is the outline drawing of a single-column vertical lathe. Since the workbench is in a horizontal position, it is more convenient to align and clamp the workpiece, and the gravity of the workpiece and the workbench is borne by the bed guide rail or thrust bearing, and the spindle does not bend. Therefore, the vertical lathe is suitable for processing larger disks and large and short sleeve parts.

Single-column vertical lathe
The single-column vertical lathe is a universal lathe in the vertical lathe series. It is suitable for turning, drilling, reaming, boring and other processing. It is worth mentioning that it is specially designed for the ball plate processing of steel ball equipment, and is also widely applicable to the processing of various disc-shaped parts

Vertical lathe and Horizontal difference?

Vertical latheThe difference between a vertical lathe and a horizontal lathe is that its main shaft is vertical, which is equivalent to standing an ordinary lathe upright. Due to the horizontal position of its table, it is suitable for machining heavy parts with large diameters and short lengths.
The vertical lathe can process inner and outer cylinders, conical surfaces, end planes, grooves, chamfers, etc., and the clamping and calibration of workpieces are more convenient.

The vertical tool holder on the vertical lathe can move along the beam guide rail and the tool holder seat guide rail for horizontal or longitudinal feed. The tool holder seat can be deflected at a certain angle for oblique feeding. The side tool holder can move up and down along the guide rail of the column, and can also move left and right along the sliding seat of the tool holder to realize longitudinal or horizontal feeding.


Introduction of vertical lathe

Vertical lathes are large-scale mechanical equipment used to process large and heavy workpieces with large radial dimensions and relatively small axial dimensions and complex shapes. Such as the cylindrical surface, end surface, conical surface, cylindrical hole, conical hole, etc. of various discs, wheels, and sleeves. It can also be used for threading, spherical turning, profiling, milling, and grinding with the help of additional devices. Compared with the horizontal lathe, the workpiece is clamped inside the clamp decoration of the horizontal lathe. On the vertical lathe, the spindle axis is arranged vertically, and the table top is in the horizontal plane, so the clamping and alignment of the workpiece are more convenient. This layout reduces the load on the spindle and bearings, so the vertical lathe can maintain working accuracy for a long time

Matters needing attention in the operation process of vertical lathe

Vertical cnc lathe1. The rough surface of the workpiece is not allowed to be placed directly on the work surface, and it should be supported by a pad iron or screw top; it is strictly forbidden to use the work surface to perform other operations such as correcting the workpiece by hammering, welding the workpiece, etc.
2. When aligning the workpiece, the worktable can only be rotated at a low speed to align, and high-speed alignment is not allowed.
3. When starting and stopping the workbench, the handle of the workbench can only be turned by hand, and pedals are strictly prohibited.
4. When the worktable is rotating, it is not allowed to do the lifting of the beam and the rapid movement of the tool holder.
5. When moving the beam, the clamping device must be loosened first, and it should be clamped immediately after moving. After the beam is lowered each time, it should be raised a little to eliminate the gap between the screw and the nut.
6. It is not allowed to carry out gravity cutting when the ram of the straight tool holder and the side tool holder is extended for a long time; when using a vertical tool holder for processing, especially when doing gravity cutting, the beam should be lowered as close as possible to the work position.
7. When performing intermittent cutting, the amount of feed and the rotational speed of the worktable should be appropriately reduced.
8. When changing gears, the joystick must be pushed to the specified position. If the gears are not well meshed, they should be adjusted by micro-movement after work, and forced operation is not allowed

The difference between Manual lathe, CNC lathes, and vertical lathes

Ordinary lathes are driven by gears and ordinary screw nuts. Due to the gaps between the kinematic pairs and the inaccurate manual operation, the repeatability is low. When measuring with ordinary lathes, it is necessary to stop and measure manually, the measurement error is relatively large, and the efficiency is low. It is suitable for small batches, low precision requirements, and zero-moving parts. Its investment is lower than that of CNC, but it requires higher operational skills of workers, so the wage level is high. The scrap rate and productivity of low-skilled workers can give you headaches.
CNC Slant bed latheThe CNC lathe is driven by a stepping motor to drive the ball screw. Since the ball screw can have interference, the transmission has no gap, and the accuracy is mainly guaranteed by the machine tool itself and the program. It can be measured automatically during processing, and can automatically compensate for errors caused by tool wear and other reasons. Therefore, the processing quality is good and the precision is stable. It can also use the method of programming to turn parts with complex shapes that are difficult to process with ordinary lathes. Suitable for parts with high precision, large batches, and, complex shapes. But small batches work well too. Its maintenance cost is higher than that of ordinary lathes.
The vertical lathe is mainly used for large pieces, and its main shaft is vertical. The vertical lathe also has numerical control. Due to the increasing shortage of high-tech talents, newly established enterprises mostly use numerical control to improve productivity and product quality and reduce scrap rates and costs.

Maintenance of vertical lathe

1. The use environment of vertical lathe
The vertical lathe is best placed in a constant temperature environment and away from equipment with large vibrations (such as punching machines) and equipment with electromagnetic interference.
2. power requirements
3. The vertical lathe should have operating procedures for regular maintenance and maintenance, and pay attention to record and protecting the site when there is a failure.

4. Vertical lathes should not be stored for a long time
5. Pay attention to the training and deployment of operators and maintenance personnel
Maintenance of vertical lathe system
1. Strictly abide by the operating procedures and daily maintenance system.
2. Prevent dust from entering the electronic control device Floating dust and metal powder can easily cause a decrease in the insulation resistance between electrical components, failing or even damage to the components.
3. Regularly clean the heat dissipation and ventilation system of the electric control cabinet.
