We are a 5-axis machining parts, CNC machining parts, and turning parts Chinese manufacturer. Let us show you what 5-axis CNC machining is.

 

 

In recent years, five-axis CNC machining centers have been widely used in various fields. When people encounter complex special-shaped parts, the use of five-axis machining technology is an important method to solve this problem. Many cnc processing suppliers engaged in trading will use 5-axis processing equipment to meet high-quality processing requirements. Do you really understand CNC 5-axis machining?

Want to really understand how a 5-axis CNC machining manufacturer processes parts? First of all, what we have to do is to understand what a 5-axis CNC machining machine is. A five-axis CNC machining machine is to add two rotary axes to the three linear axes of X, Y and Z. The two rotary axes A, B and C have different motion modes to meet the requirements of CNC machining. According to the five-axis CNC machine tools currently on the market, the mechanical structure is different, but there are mainly the following forms:

 

 

Two rotating coordinates directly control the direction of the tool axis (double swing head form)

 

The two coordinate axes are at the top of the tool,But the rotation axis is not perpendicular to the linear axis (pitch type swing head type)

 

Two rotating coordinates directly control the rotation of the space (double turntable form)

 

The two coordinate axes are on the worktable,But the rotation axis is not perpendicular to the linear axis (pitch type table)

 

Two rotating coordinates act on the tool,One acts on the workpiece (one circle and one circle)

 

 

 

Seeing these five-axis CNC machining machines, when CNC machining manufacturers process parts, we should understand the movement of five-axis CNC machining during the machining process. What are the characteristics of so many CNC five-axis machining in the machining process? Compared with traditional three-axis CNC machining machine tools, what are the advantages? Next, let us look at the characteristics of CNC 5-axis machining.

 

 

 

 

Features of CNC 5-axis machining machine

 

 

The CNC five-axis machining machine tool is compared with the traditional three-axis CNC machining machine tool. Three-axis CNC machining equipment is more common in production, and the forms include vertical, horizontal and gantry. Common machining methods used by CNC machining manufacturers include end mills, end edge machining, side edge machining, and ball nose machining. No matter which form and method have a common feature, that is, the direction of the tool axis remains unchanged during the CNC machining process. The machine tool can only use the three linear axes of X, Y and Z to realize the tool movement in the space Cartesian coordinate system. Therefore, when facing CNC machining parts, three-axis CNC machine tools are inefficient and have poor surface quality.

 

 

Compared with three-axis CNC machining equipment, VMT 5-axis machining manufacturer's machine tools have the following advantages:

 

 

1. Maintain the best cutting condition of the tool and improve the cutting conditions;

 

2. Effectively avoid tool interference;

 

3. Reduce the number of clamping times, and complete five-sided machining in one clamping;

 

4. Improve machining quality and efficiency;

 

5. Shorten the new product development cycle;

 

6. Reduce the characteristics of artificially caused poor clamping and unreasonable fixture design, and improve the quality stability and yield of batch parts;

 

7. To ensure the accuracy tolerance of the parts, our five-axis tolerance can be controlled within 0.01.
