5 Axis CNC Machining

With the advent of the era of intelligent manufacturing, the traditional CNC milling machine processing is that can not meet the complex processing needs, 5-axis CNC machining technology is the only solution for machining continuous, smooth, complex surface. Once people encounter unsolvable problems in the design and manufacture of complex surfaces, they will turn to 5 axis CNC machining technology.

5 axis CNC machining is the most difficult and widely used technology in CNC machining technology. It integrates computer control, high-performance servo drive and precision machining technology, and is applied to the efficient, precision and automatic machining of complex curved surfaces. 5 axis CNC machining is currently one of the most advanced machining processes. Internationally, 5 axis CNC machining technology is regarded as a symbol of the automation technology level of a country's production equipment. Due to its special status, especially for the important impact of aviation, aerospace and military industry.

Next, let's learn about 5 axis CNC machining.

What Is 5 Axis CNC Machining?

5 Axis Machining is a mode of CNC machining. Using linear interpolation movements of any five coordinates of X, Y, Z, A, B, and C, the machine tools used in 5 Axis machining are usually called 5 Axis machine tools or 5 Axis machining centers. In the design of the 5-axis CNC workspace, the turntable plays an important variable together with the other two axes (x, y, and z axes) designed on the base, which can move to two new working dimensions, allowing multiple possible cutting process angles, giving multi-functional and complex contour cutting capabilities. There are different types of turntables for different applications, such as lug type or multi-disk type.

The use of 5 axis CNC machining equipment for 5 axis machining of hard workpiece materials has long been regarded by the industry as a high-end advanced CNC machine tool. As we all know, since the function of advanced milling center has reached a level that ordinary machines can not keep up with, it is no longer appropriate to call it a CNC milling center or CNC milling machine. Therefore, the word multi-axis CNC machining center has become more and more popular.


Advantages of 5 Axis CNC Machining

5 axis machining or 5 axis milling is excellent for machining complex shapes and high-precision objects, because the machine tool or probe can approach the part from any direction after a clamping. 5 axis CNC machining has many significant advantages

High precision

The precision of 5 axis CNC milling is very high, because it requires a minimum of setup. Additional setup will lead to more errors. With the help of 5 axis CNC machining technology, the precision problem of complex angles of the workpiece that need to be repositioned many times is solved, which not only shortens the processing time, but also greatly improves the processing accuracy.

Processing complex shapes

The additional axis added to the machine makes it easy to process designs and geometries of high complexity. Difficult angles and arc lines can now be processed using a 5 axis CNC machine tool. In addition, the machine is able to rotate the part in a single operation, thereby achieving the desired geometries without complex machines or fixtures.

Excellent surface finish

The 5 axis machining center allows the 5 axis CNC to produce high-quality parts with high surface finishes because of the additional axis, the parts are positioned closer to the cutting tool of the 5 axis machine tool, and the last two axes can use quick-loading tools, which do not produce a lot of vibration, thus bringing a higher surface finish.

High production efficiency

5 axis machining will effectively shorten the CNC machining time. 5 axis CNC machine tools have high spindle speed, large feed range and strong cutting ability. Due to the rapid movement and positioning of 5-axis machining and high-speed cutting, the turnover cycle of semi-finished products is reduced, while the production efficiency and accuracy are improved.

 Industries Applications of 5-axis CNC Machining

5 axis machining center is a kind of machine tool with high combination intelligence. 5 axis CNC machining can produce various parts, which usually have complex geometries and complex shapes. Such as machining complex curved surfaces, disks, flat surfaces, boxes, complex shapes, end face curves and other parts. Therefore, this CNC manufacturing process is suitable for industries requiring high precision, complex shapes and strict tolerances. Typical applications include: aerospace industry, medical industry, energy industry, automobile industry, etc.
