Vertical V grooving machine vs Horizontal V grooving machine, How to choose?

horizontal v grooving machine

The CNC sheet metal V grooving machine is designed in two mainstream forms, the vertical V grooving machine and the horizontal V grooving machine. The horizontal type originated in South Korea. As an imported equipment, it is sought after by many people. After using it, many shortcomings were felt. It stems from the wrong design concept of the equipment and is attributed to the following aspects:

1. Accuracy

The depth of the groover is directly related to the effect of the angle. If the depth error reaches 0.05mm, the bending position R is obviously different.

Vertical V groover

When Vertical V Grooving Machine working, the planer is fixed to the table and runs in a straight line, and the accuracy of the distance from the tool tip to the table is controlled within the range of 0.02mm.

Horizontal V groover

When working, the knife faces a platform with a width of 1.5 meters and a length of more than 4 meters. It is difficult to control the accuracy in the range of 0.1 mm.

2. Power consumption

Vertical V groover

The tool rest moves back and forth, and its weight is about 60kg.

Horizontal V groover

The gantry and the tool rest move back and forth together, and its weight is 1000kg. About, its energy consumption is more than 10 times that of the vertical router, so the vertical router is an energy-saving and environmentally friendly equipment.

3. Processing range

Vertical V groover

Vertical V Grooving Machine

It has more than a dozen independent pressing plates and more than a dozen independent clamps to automatically clamp the sheet material. It is easy to process regardless of the size of the sheet, and it can be grooved in both horizontal and vertical directions. The smallest workpiece is 80* 80mm.

Horizontal V groover

It’s only for large-sheet grooving. After grooving longitudinally, the grooving cannot be horizontally clamped due to deformation of the sheet material.

4. Processing technology

Vertical V groover

The Vertical V Grooving Machine work surface of the vertical is made of high-quality mold steel after heat treatment and is finely ground by a grinder, and the surface fineness reaches the effect of a mirror surface.

Horizontal V groover

The work surface of the horizontal is welded from ordinary iron plates. The stainless steel plates are harder than it, and the shredders and damaged blades make the table pits and bumps. This is the reason why the processed product is spotted.

5. Installation

The vertical planer is welded by steel plates, has high strength, and runs smoothly and quietly. It can work stably only by placing it on a flat and solid cement floor and leveling and installing it, and it is very convenient to move and hoist. Due to the high-speed operation of the horizontal planer, the impact force is large, and the platform needs to be adjusted. The concrete foundation must be made according to the installation drawing, and the civil engineering must be made.

6. Safety

Vertical V groover

The vertical groover is hydraulically automatically clamped the workpiece, automatically positioned, and works automatically, and the operator is away from the moving parts of the machine tool.

Horizontal V groover

The horizontal grooving machine clamps the workpiece within the range of motion of the machine tool. The gantry moves at a high speed, and the control part runs with the gantry, which is easy to cause personal injury to the operator and poses a great safety hazard.

In general bending processing, a larger arc is left at the bend, and the thicker the processed plate, the larger the arc. The existence of this larger arc angle affects the overall appearance of the product. In order to solve this problem, we has launched a series of CNC sheet metal V-groove planers with a new design concept. This series of products have high processing accuracy, easy operation, stable and reliable operation. It is used for V-groove processing on stainless steel, ordinary iron plates, copper and other plates, and is especially suitable for V-groove processing before bending.

    It was fascinating to know that the operator is away from the moving components of the machine tool in vertical grooving. My friend told me that their project involves V grooving. I think it’s best to work with a V grooving service to ensure precise work.
