Vertical Machining Centers
Our Vertical Machining Center (VMC) utilizes break-through technology for Computer Numerical Control Machining. Vertical Machining uses a vertically-oriented spindle so tools stick straight down from the holder. Then they cut across the surface of the work piece. VMC can hold tight tolerances on challenging parts with excellent speed and consistent accuracy.
About Jones Tools & Manufacturing Vertical Machining Centers
Like other machining tools, the vertical machining center is a CNC system. It is known as a vertical machining center because its primary spindle positioned vertically to the machining table. Our vertical machining centers have the capability to machine parts so small they are measured in microns, as well as large scale pieces.
Some of the various vertical machining centers Jones Tools & Manufacturing utilizes include:

Benefits of Vertical Machining
One of the great benefits of vertical machining is the ability to control 3 axis simultaneously. With the addition of a server motor and a linear drive, we can even control up to 6 axis. Another advantage of vertical machining is the ability to machine up to 5 sides of a component with just one setup—those 5 sides consisting of the component’s top and 4 sides.
