The core value of 5-axis

Release time: January 08, 2024

We all know that 5-axis machines are expensive, but do you know the core value of 5-axis?


Why more and more manufacturers tend to use five-axis equipment to meet high-quality processing? Take a look with GD-HUB today.


The value of 5-Axis CNC service existence

New product update cycle is shortened, the cost is forced to reduce, the traditional process can not meet the delivery requirements; product quality and quantity depends on labour, and labour costs are getting higher and higher; discharge machining needs to be processed electrodes, the process cost is high, low efficiency, poor quality and five-axis can be replaced; three-axis machining process of the maturity of the process, which led to fierce competition in the homogenisation. Homogenised competition, the only unique core technology, or do what others can not work, in order to stand out, these have given rise to the emergence of five-axis machining.


Features of 5-Axis CNC machining


Five-axis machining centre is based on three-axis increased A/B/C which two rotary axes, which is characterized by the increase of two rotary axes and linear axis linkage relationship and structure. The five-axis linkage makes the machining efficiency faster, and the tiltable C-axis structure has larger bearings and better rigidity.

No.1 Accuracy


For some complex multi-face machining products, three-axis machining to achieve higher accuracy is more difficult, and manual intervention time is longer. However, 5-axis machining can achieve fast positioning processing, mainly from the following angles to increase the processing accuracy of the product:


1) Introduction of five-axis fixtures;

2) Reduce the clamping process;

(3) There is no need for multiple manual clamping, so the clamping error is reduced;

4) Only need to find the co-ordinate system once, reducing manual errors;

5) Reducing the tool L/D ratio, reducing the risk of popping the tool.

For example, 5-axis machining of mould slider reduces 13 processes to 2 processes.


No.2 Surface Quality

5-axis can improve the surface quality of the workpiece from the following angles:


1) Use the tool with shorter length and diameter to improve the machining stability;

2) Reduce the discharge process, the whole surface is more uniform;

3) Use the side edge of the ball tool to improve the surface quality of the workpiece.

No.3 Efficiency


The 5-axis can improve the machining efficiency of the workpiece from the following perspectives:


(1) Use of shorter tool lengths to increase the feed rate of machining;

2) Reduce the discharge process by using 5-axis simultaneous machining;

(3) Use of side cutting edges of ball tools and multi-flute tools to increase the machining feed.
