5 Axis CNC Router

5 Axis CNC Router is a machining center with high technology content and high precision for processing complex curved surfaces. The 5 axis CNC Router has high efficiency and high precision, and the workpiece can be assembled at one time. It can adapt to the processing of modern molds such as auto parts and aircraft structural parts. Different from the pentahedron machining center, 5 Axis CNC Milling Machine has five axes of X, Y, Z, A, and C. The X, Y, Z, and A, C axis form a 5 axis linkage machining. They are good at space surface machining, profile machining, hollow machining, punching, inclined holes, and beveling. The pentahedron machining center is similar to the three-axis machining center, except that it can make five faces at the same time, but it can’t be shaped, slanted, cut, etc.

5 Axis CNC Router can process complex curved surfaces of aluminum and various non-metallic materials and is suitable for training various model making and five-link processing talents. Suitable Materials: carbon fiber, fiberglass, composites, PMI foam, polyurethane foam, functional foam, resin, wood, honeycomb, plastic, clay and other non-metallic materials and aluminum alloy and other soft metals.

What is a 5 Axis CNC Router?

5-axis machining involves all the axes of 4-axis machining, with an additional rotational axis. 5-axis milling machines are the best CNC milling machines available today, capable of creating precise and intricate parts for artificial bones, aerospace products, titanium pieces, oil and gas machine parts, car molds, medical, architectural, and military products. The 5th axis in the 5-axis milling machine is around the B-axis, which rotates around the Y-axis in the X-Y-Z plane. This multidimensional rotation and tool movement allows for B-axis unparalleled precision, finish and speed in the production of a piece. 5-axis machining can create very complex parts, which is why it is so important for high level uses, such as aerospace applications.

However, 5-axis machining is also becoming more popular because it offers the option for single-step machining (reducing lead time), allows better access to the part geometry, and improves the tool life and efficiency of the process by tilting the table for the ideal cutting position.

So which type of machining should you choose for your project? It all comes down to your unique requirements, budget, and timeline. For expert advice, talk with FORSUN 5 axis cnc router manufacturer to find the right match for your needs. FORSUN CNC also offers free 5 axis cnc router plans PDF for people who want to diy 5 axis cnc router kit.

Structure of 5 Axis CNC Router

The 5-axis CNC engraving machine is mostly a 3 +2 structure, that is, three linear motion axes of X, Y, and Z plus two rotations of three rotation axes of A, B, and C rotating around the X, Y, and Z axes, respectively. Shaft composition.

Thus, from a large aspect, there are three forms: X, Y, Z, A, B; X, Y, Z, A, C; X, Y, Z, B, C;

It is divided into two combinations of rotating shafts, which are generally in the form of the double turntable, turntable plus swing head and double swing head. These three structural forms determine the size of the machine tool and the scope of the machined object for physical reasons. Among them, the five-axis linkage machine with double turntable structure is only suitable for processing small parts, such as small integral turbines, impellers, small precision molds, etc., because the workpiece needs to move in two directions of rotation when machining the workpiece. The price is relatively low. In terms of application, this is the most common type of five-link CNC machine tool.

The five-link CNC machine with the turret and the oscillating structure can be A-axis, B-axis or C-axis. The oscillating head is also the same. It can be A-axis, B-axis or C-axis, so the turret is equipped with an oscillating type. The five-joint CNC machine tool of the structure can be combined in various different ways to adapt to different machining objects, such as the blade of the turbo generator, which needs the A-axis plus the B-axis.

The A-axis needs to be matched with the tip of the tailstock. If the workpiece is long and the diameter is fine, it is necessary to clamp the two ends and stretch the workpiece for processing. Of course, a necessary condition here is that the two turrets must be rotated synchronously. With the C axis plus the B axis, since the workpiece rotates only on the C axis, the workpiece can be small or large, and the diameter can range from tens of millimeters to thousands of millimeters.

The diameter of the C-axis turret can also be from 100 to 200mm to 2~3 m, the specifications and quality of machine tools range from several tons to ten tons or even tens of tons. This is also a kind of five-axis CNC machine tool with a wide range of applications. Its price is middle, and the size, accuracy, and performance of the randomizer vary greatly. The five-axis CNC machine with double pendulum structure, due to its structure itself: there is usually an electric spindle with a loose broach structure in the middle of the oscillating head, so the size of the double oscillating head itself is not easy to be small, generally 400-500 mm.

Advantages of 5 Axis CNC Router

  • 5 Axis linkage CNC machine tool system is the only means to solve the processing of impeller, blade, marine propeller, heavy-duty generator rotor, steam turbine rotor, large diesel engine crankshaft and so on. It is a high-tech, high-precision machine tool for processing complex curved surfaces. The machine tool system has a significant influence on a country’s aviation, aerospace, military, scientific research, precision instruments, high-precision medical equipment, and other industries.
  • The use of a 5 Axis CNC Cutting Machine makes the clamping of the workpiece easy. No special fixtures are needed during processing, which reduces the cost of the fixture, avoids multiple clamping and improves the precision of mold processing. Machining molds with 5 Axis technology can reduce the number of fixtures used. In addition, because the five-axis linkage machine saves many special tools during machining, the tool cost is reduced. The 5 Axis CNC Cutting machine can increase the effective cutting edge length of the tool during machining, reduce the cutting force, improve the tool life and reduce the cost.
  • Using a five-axis CNC Router processing mold can quickly complete the mold processing, fast delivery, better guarantee the processing quality of the mold, make mold processing easier, and make mold modification easier. In the traditional mold processing, the vertical machining center is generally used to complete the milling of the workpiece. With the continuous development of mold manufacturing technology, some weaknesses of the vertical machining center itself are becoming more and more obvious. Modern mold processing is generally processed by ball-end milling cutters. The benefits of ball-end milling cutters in mold processing are very obvious, but if a vertical machining center is used, the bottom line has zero line speed, so the bottom surface has a poor finish. If the four or five-axis linkage machining technology is used to process the mold, the above shortcomings can be overcome.
