Best 4 Axis CNC Wood Carving Machine in 2021
What is the 4 Axis CNC Wood Carving Machine?
The best 4 Axis CNC Wood Carving Machine, the spindle can swing 180 degree, 8 linear tool changers can be selected to meet the needs of different processing technologies, full-scale engraving without dead angles, and can complete curved surface processing, mainly used in wood mold industry, craft industry and gift industry.
4 axis CNC router is quite good at processing 3D workpieces. It generally falls into two types. The first type described hereunder is equipped with a rotating spindle that can swing by 180°. It can engrave 3D patterns and drill holes on side surfaces of wood, MDF, acrylic, foam, rubber, and other materials. For example, 3D letters, signs, reliefs, and sculptures.
What Is 4 Axis CNC Router?
4 axis CNC router machine is based on the ordinary 3 axis CNC machine, adding the fourth axis (rotary axis). In addition, the 4 axis CNC machine is divided into four-axis three-linkage and four-axis four-linkage CNC machine, not to say that the rotation is added, the axis is a four-axis linkage machine, and a CNC system with a rotating axis and a four-axis linkage can be called as a real 4 axis CNC machine. Because of the rotation movement of the 4th rotary axis, 3D machining of cylindrical, arc, and circular surfaces is realized.
4 Axis VS 3 Axis
3 axis CNC machine has only three coordinate axes, X, Y, and Z, while the 4 axis CNC machine has one more indexing head than the 3 axis CNC machine. The indexing head is a common accessory of CNC machines and is used for machining complex products. The best auxiliary tool, controlled by the CNC operating system, can realize linkage with other axes. It is mainly used for indexing and positioning machining of workpieces. The indexing device is generally located on the spindle of the machine tool. Under normal circumstances, the CNC machine has three basic axes, X, Y, and Z. The other rotation and feed axes are the fourth axis. The latter can realize the positioning of the tool magazine, the rotary positioning of the rotary table and the indexing head, and more advanced The system can also perform interpolation operations with the basic axis to realize four-axis and five-axis linkage.
3 axis CNC machine cannot process many surfaces even if it is horizontally rotated through the table. 4 axis is better than 3 axis in this respect. In terms of programming, the difference between 3 axis and 4 axis is basically the same. The operator who can operate the 3 axis CNC machine can quickly get started with the operation of the 4 axis CNC machine, and the operation difference will not be much worse.
What can a 4 axis Machine be used for?
4 axis CNC machine has four processing directions of X, Y, Z and A axis. Therefore, it can realize the processing of three-dimensional work pieces such as Dragon pillar, Guanyin statue, Buddha statue, Roman column, gourd and so on. And it can be also widely used in three-dimensional wave board processing, cabinet doors, solid wood doors, craft doors, paint-free doors, screens, craft window processing, shoe polishers, game cabinets and panels, mahjong tables, computer tables and panel furniture products’ auxiliary processing.
