What Are the Advantages of Five-Axis Machining Centers?

Understanding Five-axis Machining Center

The five-axis machining center has high efficiency and precision. With one-time clamping, it can complete complex machining tasks. It is suitable for modern mold processing such as automobile parts and aircraft structural parts. There is a big difference between the five-axis machining center and the pentahedron machining center. Many people mistake the pentahedron machining center for the five-axis machining center. The five-axis machining center has five axes: x, y, z, a, and c. The xyz and ac axes form five-axis linkage machining, which is good at spatial surface machining, non-standard machining, hollowing, drilling, slant holes, slant cutting, etc. On the other hand, the "pentahedron machining center" is similar to the three-axis machining center, but it can only process five faces. It cannot process non-standard shapes, slanted holes, slanted surfaces, etc.

The five-axis machining center adopts the spindle, multi-tool holder, and automatic tool change device to complete multiple processes in one-time clamping, saving a lot of time for clamping and tool change. The closed or semi-closed processing does not require manual operation. It has strong interlock ability to prevent accidents, improves the observation, operation and maintenance conditions of operators. An emergency stop device is also set up to effectively avoid accidental accidents.

The Seven Advantages of Five-axis Machining Centers

  • Suitable for processing complex and non-standard parts. The five-axis machining center can achieve the processing of complex parts that are difficult or impossible to process with a general machining center, so it is widely used in aerospace, shipbuilding, mold processing, and other industries.

  • High precision machining. The five-axis machining center completes the inspection by analyzing the dimensions of the material through five-axis positioning, so the precision of the five-axis vertical machining center is higher than that of the ordinary machining center.

  • Stable processing quality. By mastering the computer calculation, eliminating human errors, the consistency of part processing is good, and the quality is stable.

  • High flexibility. When converting the processing object, it is generally only necessary to change the numerical control sequence, which shows good adaptability and can save a lot of time for production. Based on the five-axis machining center, it can form an automated production system with high flexibility.

  • High efficiency. The five-axis machining center has high machining accuracy and bed rigidity. It can automatically select the processing amount. The production efficiency of the five-axis machining center is generally 3-5 times that of the ordinary machining center, which can cope with the processing of some complex parts and improve the efficiency by several dozen times.

  • Good production conditions. The machine has high automation, reducing the working intensity of operators and improving the working environment.

  • Benefits for management. Adopting the five-axis machining center will benefit the grasp and management of production, creating conditions for realizing the automation of the production process.
