5 Axis CNC Router

What is the 5 axis CNC Router Machine?
5 Axis CNC Router is one kind of 5 Axis CNC Machine, it is able to carve on a workpiece in five different directions simultaneously. Same as other CNCs, its basic machining operates on 3 primary axes of X, Y, Z; however, it can rotate its tools by two additional axes, A and B, which helps carving-tools get more proper and close to the surface of workpieces. It has the advantages of high machining accuracy and is specially used for the machining of complex curved surface workpieces. At present, it is the only means to solve the processing of impellers, blades, marine propellers, large diesel engine crankshafts, etc. It plays an important role in the aviation, aerospace, military, scientific research, precision equipment, high-precision medical equipment, and other industries.

Features and advantages:
  • Simpler operation. It is easier to clamp the workpiece. No special clamps are required during processing, which not only reduces the cost of the clamps, but also avoids the tedious of multiple clamping, and the most important thing is to improve the processing accuracy.
  • Lower cost. It reduces the number of fixtures. In addition, can also save many special tools in processing, the tool cost is greatly reduced, and the user has greater profit margins.
  • Longer service life. It increases the effective cutting edge length during processing, reduces the cutting force, increases the service life.
  • Shorter production cycles. It completes the mold processing quickly, the delivery is fast, the quality is better guaranteed, the mold processing and modification is easier.
  • Better processing quality. In traditional ways, a vertical machining center is generally used to complete the milling process of the workpiece. However, if a vertical machining center is used, the linear velocity of the bottom surface is zero, so the bottom surface finish is poor. If you use 5 axis CNC machine processing technology, you can ensure a sufficiently high finish and product quality.

What can it do?

  • It can process wood, polyester, wood substitute, wood, Polyurethane foam (EPS), resin, gypsum, sludge, and non-metallic carbonized mixed materials.
  • It is widely applicable to the production of various high-precision three-dimensional products such as large-scale automobile molds, poly dragon molds, cartoon character statues, garden three-dimensional sculptures.
  • It is suitable for the processing of interior parts, car models, ceramic sanitary ware, ships, yachts, aerospace chemicals, wind power, rail transportation, solid wood furniture.
