How does 5-axis machining parts?

The 5-axis machining center is often used in high-end manufacturing as a highly automated intelligent processing equipment. The five-axis machining center is suitable for machining free-form surface parts, turbine parts and impellers on aircraft ships. We can find that the  workpieces suitable for the machining of the five-axis machining center have the characteristics of high degree of surface and difficult to be formed by one-time clamping. Therefore, the five-axis machine tool can process the different sides of the workpiece without changing the position of the workpiece on the machine. Improve the processing efficiency of prismatic parts.

The five-axis machining center has three moving axes of X, Y and Z and any two rotating axes. Compared with the traditional three-axis machining center, the five-axis linkage technology of the 5 Axis machining center is used to process workpieces with complex geometry. The tool can be positioned and operated in five degrees of freedom.

The five-axis machining center is a particularly effective device for processing facets, boxes, and complex chambers. It has a significant influence on a country's aerospace, military research, precision equipment, automotive parts, high-precision medical equipment and other fields.

Benefits of 5-axis machining

5-axis machining provides a number of added benefits over 3-axis machining.

Significant reduction in processing time

5 axis CNC machining helps in saving more time than the other conventional types. Parts made in most of the CNC shops have to get machined on the five sides. 5 axis CNC machining helps in doing the job effectively and fast in production. The single setup is needed a little also, which saves both money and time. The end products reach the market faster this way. The best precision five-axis machining factory in China.

Improved precision in machining

5 axis CNC milling offers greater accuracy because it doesn’t need too much setups. Added setups can only invite more errors. It also increases the durability of specific tools because of the widespread use of short cutting tools.

The added movement of a 5-axis machine allows the parts to be in closer contact to the cutting tool. The fourth and fifth axis can be reached through a shorter tool that vibrates less, resulting in a smoother and more precise surface finish.

Quality of the surface finish

This kind of configurations help in creating surfaces having better finish. The parts are situated comparatively closer to cutting tools in 5 axis CNC machines. The final two axes will allow one to use the short cutting tools that don’t vibrate too much, and this will significantly impact the quality of the surface finish. Another great fact about 5 axis CNC machines is their ability to cut intricate shapes.

Lower Cost and Lead Time

5-axis machining reduces several inaccuracies of traditional 3-axis machining by handling the part less, resulting in the lowest possible cost per part. It also increases tool life and reduces the need for expensive fixtures. Longer lead times are required when using a 3-axis machine because of the amount of set up time required. If you need many of the same pieces produced, lead time will be shortened significantly by using a 5-axis machine with multiple pallets.

Here are a few examples of parts that can be machined using a 5-axis machine:

When Should You Choose A 5-Axis Machining Process?

5-Axis CNC Machining is very popular in the oil and gas, automobile, aerospace, compressor processing, medical, robotics, Defense, boating, and alternative power industries. This machining is used when you want to handle complex parts with a single setup, need precision, increased productivity, improved finishing, multidimensional cutting and shaping, small runs, faster turnaround times, and other features in processing a workpiece.

They are used for military products, care molds, machine parts, titanium pieces, milling, artificial bones, and other products. It is used in work areas where a single step with minimum lead time is needed. It offers appropriate accessibility for cutting and shaping to part geometry.

When you are dealing with different materials, intricate parts, and a considerable workload, then this type of CNC machining is best. This machining is continuous, faster, and more straightforward with better outcomes. For high quality and efficiency, this machining is the best option.

Industries benefiting from 5 Axis machining

These products are typically used in highly specialized industries where accuracy can mean the difference between life and death. Medicine, military, aerospace, petrochemical, and other fields often use five-axis machining to create their custom parts:

Medical Components: Medical parts and tools require a design that's precise enough to ensure the elements used for surgery or replacement parts fit perfectly. Improper cuts or imperfect edges can render medical supplies unusable. This makes five-axis machining the preferred way to create customized medical tools and components.

Automotive Design: Modern vehicles are equal parts electronic and mechanical wonders. To ensure the proper fit of mechanical parts, five-axis machines may be used. Additionally, the smaller electrical housings and other parts may require the use of a higher-axis CNC machine.

Architectural Components: Architectural designs are essentially giant puzzles where the pieces must perfectly fit with each other. A small error in a cut on one component could put a building's design so far from its original intent that it does not pass inspection. Door frames are one example of architectural pieces that may need five-axis machining to create.

Military-Grade Products: The military uses the best of everything to protect the country. And when it comes to vehicles, weapons, and other products, consistency and precision are top requirements.

Petrochemical Industry Parts: Oil and gas components for rigs and refineries often have customized designs that need specialized machining to create. Since these parts are unavailable in stores, many petrochemical companies turn to CNC-machined parts for their facilities.

Aerospace Components: The precision needed by the aerospace industry for airplanes, rockets, satellites, and more can directly impact human lives. Poorly crafted parts on flying machines could prevent the systems from working together as they should, resulting in manufacturing defects that could contribute to a crash.

While five-axis CNC machines are useful for the above applications, some of them may be achieved using a three-axis machine with the right operator who is skilled in positioning the material and moving it to create cuts on different axes. Opting for a trained expert using a three-axis machine offers several advantages whenever you need custom parts created.
