Advantage of five-axis machining centerThorpe
Five-axis machining center, also known as a five-axis CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine, is a sophisticated and versatile tool used in the manufacturing industry to perform precision machining operations on various workpieces. Unlike traditional three-axis machining centers that can move in three directions (X, Y, and Z), a five-axis machining center has the ability to move the cutting tool along two additional rotary axes, typically referred to as the A and B axes. This provides greater flexibility and allows the machine to access and machine complex surfaces and features from multiple angles.
In the five-axis machining, the use of flat-bottom end mills can greatly reduce the machining time when the mold is disordered and the appearance is erect. The principle of the five-axis machining center is also suitable for side milling with a viewpoint appearance, eliminating the rib-like texture caused by ball-end milling, making the appearance of the mold more ideal, and the appearance of the mold without finishing increases the manual milling and technical workload.
After the five-axis machining is completed, it solves the problem that the workpiece needs to be repositioned at complex angles and needs to be debugged and installed many times, which not only shortens the time, but also greatly reduces the processing cost. An error occurred. It also saves a lot of costs, and the machine tool also realizes the processing of complex parts such as drilling, taper processing, cavity grooves and other complex parts required for complex surfaces, which cannot be achieved by traditional methods. The five-axis machining center can meet the processing of these complex surfaces. The following editor will bring you today!
As far as the current market development situation is concerned, under the needs of the rapid development of my country’s national economy and national defense construction, more demands are placed on CNC machine tools. CNC machine tools are the performance of the national manufacturing level. The high-end field of machine tool manufacturing is the five-axis machining center system, which indirectly reflects the level of national industrial development. The five-axis machining center system has an important influence in aerospace scientific research precision instruments, high-precision medical equipment and other industries. At present, the five-axis machining center system is considered to be a technical system to solve the processing of impellers, blades, marine propellers, large generator rotors, turbine rotors, etc.
Advantage of five-axis machining center
At present, the five-axis machining center can be widely used in aerospace, rail transit, solid wood furniture, power generation, lost foam of wood mold, automotive interior parts, advertising and other industries, and will be updated to develop more industry needs in the future. Strive for greater skills and better application results!
The five-axis machining center is a cutting method that uses the rotation of the main shaft to complete the cutting process, so that the workpiece can be completely processed in terms of shape accuracy, position accuracy, and outer surface of the workpiece. The five-axis machining center does not simply combine the two processing methods of turning and milling, but uses the spindle motion of the five-axis machining center to realize the production and processing of various molds, plates and furniture. A new cutting practice and cutting technique that has emerged in the context of great technological advancement.
Compared with the previous CNC machining process, the outstanding advantages of the five-axis machining center tooling are mainly reflected in the following aspects:
Reduce product manufacturing process chain and improve production efficiency. A variety of special tools can be installed, and the new tool layout can reduce the tool change time of the five-axis machining center and improve the processing efficiency of products. Thereby, the manufacturing process time of the product is greatly shortened. In this way, on the one hand, the production time caused by the change of the clamping device is reduced, and at the same time, the production cycle and the expected time of the tooling fixture are reduced, which can significantly improve the production efficiency.
Reduce clamping times. The reduction in the number of card setups prevents the accumulation of errors due to positioning datum switching. At the same time, most of the current turning-milling composite processing equipment has an online detection function, which can realize in-situ detection and precise control of key data in the production process, thereby improving the processing accuracy of products. ;High-strength one-piece bed design improves the difficulty of gravity machining of cutting materials; the machine tool is equipped with an automatic feeding device, which can realize automatic feeding and continue, and basically realize the assembly line operation of a single machine tool.
Reduce floor space and lower production costs. The five-axis machining center is designed with a compact and elegant shape, which improves the space application method, makes protection and maintenance more inconvenient, and makes customers satisfied; although the price of a single turn-milling compound machining equipment is relatively high, due to the reduction of the production process chain and The required equipment reduces the number of fixtures, workshop space, and equipment protection costs for products, which can effectively reduce the overall fixed asset investment, production, operation and management costs.
