5 Axis Machining, a mode of CNC machine tool processing.
According to the ISO regulations, when describing the motion of the CNC machine, the right-hand rectangular coordinate system is adopted; the coordinate axis parallel to the main axis is defined as the z-axis, and the rotation coordinates around the x, y, and z axes are A, B, and C, respectively. The movement of each coordinate axis can be realized by the table or by the movement of the tool, but the directions are defined by the direction of movement of the tool relative to the workpiece. Usually five-axis linkage refers to the linear interpolation motion of any five coordinates of x, y, z, A, B, and C.
In other words, the five axes refer to three moving axes of x, y, and z plus any two rotating axes. Compared to the common three-axis (x, y, z three degrees of freedom) machining, five-axis machining refers to the machining of the tool can be positioned and connected in five degrees of freedom when machining complex parts.
Machine tools used for five-axis machining are often referred to as five-axis machines or five-axis machining centers. Five-axis machining is commonly used in the aerospace industry to machine body parts, turbine parts, and impellers with free-form surfaces. The five-axis machine tool can process different sides of the workpiece without changing the position of the workpiece on the machine tool, which can greatly improve the processing efficiency of the prismatic parts.
The types of five-axis machines are available.
Cradle, vertical, horizontal, NC table + NC indexing head, NC table + 90 ° B axis, NC table + 45 ° B axis, NC table + A axis °, non-orthogonal, two axes NC spindle, etc.
