THE HORIZONTAL MILLING MACHINE

V. Ryan 2003 - 2009

 

The Horizontal Milling Machine is a very robust and sturdy machine. A variety of cutters are available to removed/shape material that is normally held in a strong machine vice. This horizontal miller is used when a vertical miller is less suitable. For instance, if a lot of material has to be removed by the cutters or there is less of a need for accuracy - a horizontal milling machine is chosen.

 
   

   

The cutter can be changed very easily. The arbor bracket is removed by loosening nuts and bolts that hold the arbor firmly in position. The arbor can be slid off the over arm. The spacers are then removed as well as the original cutter. The new cutter is placed in position, spacers slid back onto the arbor and the arbor bracket tightened back in position.

     
QUESTION:
Explain through the use of diagrams how the cutter of a horizontal miller is changed.
