Vertical Milling Machine This study guide will cover the major working parts, functions, and machining techniques that can be found/used on most vertical milling machines. This study guide has been designed to directly represent the questions that will be found on the open book written assessment and as an aid for the handson usability assessment.
Ramtype mill This can refer to any mill that has a cutting head mounted on a sliding ram. The spindle can be oriented either vertically or horizontally. In practice most mills with rams also involve swiveling ability, whether or not it is called "turret" mounting. The Bridgeport configuration can be classified as a verticalhead ramtype mill.
