Main Parts of Milling Machine
The milling machine main parts are:
1. Column & Base
Column including base is the main casting that supports all other parts of milling machine.
It is a casting that supports the saddle and table. All gearing mechanism is enclosed within the knee.
3. Saddle and Swivel Table
Saddle is present on the knee and supports the table. It slides on a horizontal dovetail on the knee and dovetail is parallel to the axis of the spindle ( in horizontal milling m/c).
4. Power Feed Mechanism
It is the knee which contains the power feed mechanism. It is used to control the longitudinal (left and right), transverse ( in and out) and vertical (up and down) feeds.
It is a rectangular casting which is present on the top of the saddle.
It is the shaft which is used to hold and drives the cutting tools of the milling machine.
7. Over Arm / Overhanging Arm
It is a horizontal beam present at the top face of the column. It may be a single casting which slides on the dovetail ways present on the top face of the column.
8. Arbor Support
It is a casting with bearing that supports the outer end of the arbor. It also helps in aligning the outer end of the arbor with the spindle.
The overhanging arm in the vertical machine is called ram. One end of the ram is mounted on the top of the column and on the other end milling head is attached.
