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.
