5-Axis CNC Router Machine for SaleThorpe
Advanced 5-Axis CNC Router, also known as 5 axis cnc machining center, 5 axis cnc milling machine, is good at space curved surface processing, special-shaped processing, hollow processing, punching, oblique drilling, chamfering, etc. It is widely used in aerospace, military scientific research, precision machinery, high-precision medical equipment, normal manufacturing, etc.
Five axis CNC machining refers to the CNC processing in which the tools can work in 5 different directions simultaneously. Compared with the basic 3 axis machining, the five-axis CNC machining is more flexible and variable. The 5 axes refer to X+Y+Z+A (rotates around X)+B (rotates around Y), X+Y+Z+A+C (rotates around Z), or X+Y+Z+B+C.
What is 5-axis CNC Machining?
In the simplest terms, 5-axis machining involves using a CNC to move a part or cutting tool along five different axes simultaneously. This enables the machining of very complex parts, which is why 5-axis is especially popular for aerospace applications.
However, several factors have contributed to the wider adoption of 5-axis machining. These include:
A push toward single-setup machining (sometimes referred to as “Done-in-One”) to reduce lead time and increase efficiency.
The ability to avoid collision with the tool holder by tilting the cutting tool or the table, which also allows better access to part geometry.
Improved tool life and cycle time as a result of tilting the tool/table to maintain optimum cutting position and constant chip load.
A 5-axis machine’s specific configuration determines which two of the three rotational axes it utilizes.For example, a trunnion-style machine operates with an A-axis (rotating about the X-axis) and a C-axis (rotating about the Z-axis), whereas a swivel-rotate-style machine operates with a B-axis (rotating about the Y-axis) and a C-axis (rotating about the Z-axis).
What can a 5 axis CNC machining center do?
The five-axis machining center can process planes, curved and inclined surfaces, oblique holes, 2D and 3D curved surfaces, and 3D lines. It can realize continuous milling, engraving, drilling, and sawing in all directions with one fixing and positioning of the workpiece.
The high-precision 5 axis machining centers have extensive applications in the furniture, molding, construction, machine manufacturing, civil and military industries. It can be used to produce: 1.Box-type parts, like automobile engine cylinder heads, clutch and gearbox housing, pumps
2.Complex curved surfaces, like bevel gear wheels, pinions, impellers 3.Irregular parts, including drilling, milling, boring, expanding, reaming, and rigid tapping processes
4.Molds, such as ship molds, automotive molds, construction molds 5.Statues and sculptures
6.Large-sized wood furniture
7.Styrofoam or gypsum models
