Horizontal Machining Centers

Ideal for automation and uninterrupted, unattended production operations, a horizontal machining center (HMC) uses a horizontally-oriented spindle, parallel to the ground floor, with tools that stick out of the side of the toolholder and cut across the surfaces of a workpiece, allowing chips to fall away without having to be cleared from the table. A two-pallet workchanger used with an HMC saves time because work can be loaded on one pallet while machining takes place on the other pallet.
