Vertical Machining Center

A vertical machining center, also known as a VMC machine, is a processing machine with the spindle axis running in the vertical direction. It uses the vertical spindle to accommodate cutting tools such as end mills, drills, and taps. Instructions are programmed through CNC to control tool paths, cutting speeds, feeds, depth of cut, tool changes, and other parameters required to accurately machine the workpiece for precise positioning and cutting in three dimensions.
