A vertical milling machine is used to shape metal into a predetermined form; this can be anything from ball bearings, airplane parts or flywheels. Vertical mills greatly decrease the time it takes to produce a part. For example, a milled part by hand may take a full week to complete, whereas the same part produced on a vertical mill can take minutes.
Vertical milling machines spindle axis is aligned in a vertical position to the machines bed, whereas a horizontal milling machine, the cutting tool and spindle move in a horizontal manner. This means that the cutting tool is set vertically to shape the metal or other material into the proper form. The mill moves while the part itself actually remains stationary, this is accomplished with controlled movements either by hand or through programming via a computer.
These machines are capable of producing small parts, such as slots, or large parts, such as torque converters. The mill is often cooled by coolant which will also lubricate the milling tools and the part, washing away any metal pieces. Another great selling point is the fact that the finished product can be polished right on the mill, giving it a chrome-like finish.
