1、 What is a 5 Axis Machining Center?
The five axis machining center, also known as the five axis linkage machining center, is a type of machining center with high technological content and precision, specifically used for processing complex surfaces. This machining center system has a significant impact on a country's aviation, aerospace, military, scientific research, precision instruments, high-precision medical equipment, and other industries. At present, the five axis linkage CNC machining center system is the only means to solve the machining of impellers, blades, marine propellers, heavy-duty generator rotors, steam turbine rotors, large diesel engine crankshafts, and so on.
2、 Application prospects:
Five axis machining centers are not only used in civil industries, such as wood mold manufacturing, bathroom trimming, automotive interior parts processing, foam mold processing, European style home furnishing, solid wood chairs, etc., but also widely used in aviation, aerospace, military, medical equipment, teaching, rail transit, wind power generation and other industries.
Five axis machining center is a high-tech means that makes impossible possible, and all spatial surfaces and irregular machining can be completed. It can not only complete the task of mechanized machining of complex workpieces, but also quickly improve processing efficiency and shorten the processing process.
Advantages of a five axis machining center: It can process free form surfaces that cannot be processed by ordinary three axis CNC machines or that cannot be processed in one go. For example, the blades of aircraft engines and steam turbines, the spiral thrusters of ships, and other complex molds with special curved surfaces. Due to the fact that the cutting tools and angles of the five axis machining center can be adjusted at any time during the machining process, it can avoid obstacles from other cutting tools and complete all machining at once.
