Horizontal milling machines utilize cutters that are mounted on a horizontal spindle across the table. Many horizontal millers also offer a built-in rotary table that allows milling to be done at various angles. While both vertical mills and horizontal can use end mills and other types of tools, the horizontal mill doesn’t have a fixed spindle which allows it to offer arbor-mounted cutters, called side and face mills, similar to a circular saw but generally wider and smaller in diameter. This allows for heavy cuts to be made enabling rapid material removal speeds.
There are quite a few projects that work best on horizontal milling machines:
Cutting one or multiple grooves on a workpiece.
Working on large projects.
Can handle extremely heavy material.
Projects that require multiple sides and/or in several planes to be worked on.
Over all horizontal millers are better options for more intricate projects than its counterpart the vertical milling machine. These machines can frequently complete projects quicker, although projects requiring this sort of precise and complex work might end up requiring a bigger financial investment than tasks that can be worked on vertical mills.
Multiple cuts simultaneously.
Built to last.
Plenty of customization options.
Cleaner work area.
