A knee-type universal milling machine is a machine tool that has a vertically adjustable worktable that is mounted on a knee, which is a massive casting that rides vertically on the milling machine column. The knee-type milling machine has a horizontally oriented spindle that is parallel to the worktable, and the workpiece is clamped to the worktable using a vise or clamping device. The cutting tool is mounted on an arbor that is inserted into the spindle and is driven by a motor. The knee-type milling machine is capable of performing both conventional and climb milling operations and can be used to machine a wide variety of materials including metals, plastics, and composites.
Delivery is 8-12 Weeks from Deposit
Using a knee-type universal milling machine involves the following steps:
Set up the workpiece: Secure the workpiece to the worktable using a vise or clamping device. Make sure that it is level and properly aligned.
Select the cutting tool: Choose the appropriate cutting tool for the operation and mount it on the arbor. Make sure that it is tightened securely and that the tool is properly aligned with the spindle.
Adjust the spindle speed: Set the spindle speed to match the recommended speed for the cutting tool and the material being machined.
Adjust the feed rate: Set the feed rate to match the recommended speed for the cutting tool and the material being machined.
Start the machine: Turn on the machine and lower the cutting tool onto the workpiece using the knee.
Perform the operation: Use the handles on the knee to control the movement of the cutting tool. Make sure to keep your hands clear of the cutting tool and to use the appropriate safety equipment.
Stop the machine: When the operation is complete, turn off the machine and raise the cutting tool away from the workpiece.
Clean up: Clean up any chips or debris from the work area and properly store the cutting tool.
It's important to always refer to the machine manual for specific instructions and safety guidelines before operating any machine.
