5-Axis CNC Machining Parts
5-Axis CNC machining parts are common among free-curing surface. The surface of 5-axis CNC machining parts is highly curved and difficult to be made by clamping once. Because 5-axis machining can process the different side of the workpiece without changing the position of workpiece, it can enhance the machining efficiency of rhomb-shaped parts.
5-axis CNC machining center has three mobile axes, x-axis, y-axis z-axis, and two free-rotary axes. Compared with traditional 3-axis machining center, the linkage of 5-axis CNC machining center makes it more flexible to produce geometrically complex workpiece. When processing 5-axis CNC machining parts, cutter will locate and work automatically along the 5 axes.
Compare with 4-axis or 3-axis, 5-axis CNC machining parts have more advantages, but not all parts are suitable for 5-axis CNC machining. If you apply 5-axis CNC machining to parts that should be done by 3-axis machining, the cost will increase, and the quality or performance may decrease. Only with appropriate machine, can the quality and performance be presented perfectly.
5-axis CNC machining has high universality, and it is suitable to process complex and precise parts. The common 5-axis CNC machining parts include medical parts of prosthesis or replica bones, parts of turbine and impeller of aviator, spaceship and airplane.
