The features of 5-Axis CNC machine tools

1. Maintain the optimal cutting state of the tool and improve the cutting conditions

As shown in the above figure, in the three-axis cutting mode in the left figure, when the cutting tool moves towards the top or the edge of the workpiece, the cutting state gradually becomes worse. In order to maintain the best cutting condition here, it is necessary to rotate the worktable. If we want to finish machining an irregular plane, we must rotate the table several times in different directions. It can be seen that the five axis machine tool can also avoid the case that the center point linear speed of ball end milling cutter is 0, and obtain better surface quality.
2. Effectively avoid tool interference
CNC machine tools
For the impeller, blade and blisk used in the aerospace field, the three-axis equipment can not meet the technological requirements due to interference. And five axis machine tool can satisfy. At the same time, the five axis machine tool can also use shorter tools for machining, improve the rigidity of the system, reduce the number of tools, and avoid the generation of special tools.  it means that in terms of tool cost, five axis machine tool will save you money.5-Axis CNC machine tools
3. Reduce the number of clamping, and complete five side processing in one clamping

As shown in the figure above, the five axis machining center can also reduce the datum conversion and improve the machining accuracy. In the actual machining, only one clamping is needed, and the machining accuracy is more easily guaranteed. At the same time, due to the shortening of the process chain and the reduction of the number of equipment in the five axis machining center, the number of fixture, the floor area of the workshop and the maintenance cost of the equipment are also reduced. This means that you can use less fixture, less workshop area and maintenance costs to complete more efficient and high-quality processing!
4. Improve processing quality and efficiency
The five axis machine tool can adopt the cutter side edge to cut, and the machining efficiency is higher.
5. Shorten production process chain and simplify production management
The complete machining of five axis CNC machine greatly shortens the production process chain and simplifies the production management and scheduling. The more complex the workpieces are, the more obvious the advantages of the workpieces are compared with the traditional production methods.
6. Shorten the R & D cycle of new products
For enterprises in aerospace, automobile and other fields, some new product parts and forming dies have complex shapes and high precision requirements. Therefore, the five axis CNC machining center with high flexibility, high precision, high integration and complete machining ability can solve the problem of precision and cycle of complex parts in the process of new product development, greatly shorten the R & D cycle and improve the new product The success rate of the product.
