What is a Column Machine?
Column machines, as the name suggests, are machines equipped with heavy-duty columns at each side and a heavy-duty base to withstand rigorous machining of large & heavy workpieces. Basic column machines are equipped with CNC and provide a full 3-axis range of movement, similar to vertical mills. But because of the larger size of column machines compared to vertical mills, column machines are able to carve, cut, and drill into larger and heavier workpieces with greater power, control, precision, and complexity.
And due to the mentioned column machine’s power and stability for large-sized precision, the column machine is widely used in aerospace, energy, manufacturing, automotive, and many more industries that require power and precision cutting with large workpieces.
