More than 2000 BC, the tree lathe appeared, which is the earliest prototype of the machine tool.
In 1958, the first CNC machining center was successfully developed by the American Carney-Trek Company. The CNC machining center adds an automatic tool changing device to the horizontal boring and milling machine, so that it can complete the processing of multiple processes after clamping the workpiece at one time, and can realize a variety of functional processing, including milling, drilling, boring Cutting, reaming and tapping etc.
After 1970, CNC machining centers with replaceable headstocks appeared. This time, multi-hole machining of workpieces was realized at the same time, and the machining efficiency was higher.
A brief history of the development of CNC machining centers in China:
In 1958, China made its own machine tool equipped with a sub-pipe CNC system;
1965, my country began mass production of CNC milling machines.
After decades of development, CNC machining centers are currently developing in the direction of high, sharp and precise, and the scope of application is becoming more and more extensive.
The biggest difference between CNC machining center and CNC milling machine is that it has a tool magazine, which can perform automatic tool change, so that one clamping can change various processing functions by changing the tool, and the production efficiency is greatly improved.
my country's CNC machining center manufacturing technology has been greatly developed, but it still needs to continue to work hard to catch up with foreign countries.
