What is five-axis machining?

The five-axis machining center is a machining center with high technology content and high precision, which is specially used for machining complex curved surfaces. This machining center system has a significant influence on a country's aviation, navigation, military, scientific research, precision equipment, high-precision medical equipment and other industries.

The five-axis machining has the characteristics of high efficiency and high precision, and the workpiece can be assembled in one time. It can adapt to the processing of current molds such as auto parts and aircraft structural parts. The five-axis machining center and the pentahedron machining center are very different. Many people don't know this and mistake the pentahedron machining center as a five-axis machining center.

The five-axis machining center has five axes of X, Y, Z, A, and C. The XYZ and AC axes form a five-axis machining. They are good at space surface machining, profile machining, hollow machining, punching, slanting, and beveling. The pentahedral machining center is similar to the three-axis machining center, except that it can make five faces at the same time, but it can't be shaped, such as slanting holes and cutting bevels.

In addition, the five-axis machining center has a wide range of applications. It is known that the current five-axis CNC Machining center system is the only means to solve the machining of impellers, blades, marine propellers, heavy-duty generator rotors, automobile wheels, and large diesel engine crankshafts.

So what are the advantages of five-axis machining?

1. Reduce machining time and improve machining accuracy.

2. Reduce equipment investment costs, workshop floor space and number of workshops.

3. No special fixtures are needed, and automation can be achieved.
