CNC routers are new machinery and equipment in the woodworking and furniture manufacturing industry in recent years, which representing the development trend of the woodworking machinery industry. In particular, the gradual maturity of multi-axis CNC machining technology has made CNC machining equipment widely used in various manufacturing industries. Today we are going to talk about the application of 4-axis CNC router in the furniture industry.
The 4-axis machining equipment combines computer control, high-performance servo drive and precision machining technology to process continuous, smooth, and complex surfaces. In the furniture industry, especially the shape of custom solid wood furniture, for its structure and shape gradually become more complex and multi-surface. Compared with the traditional 3-axis CNC machine tools, the 4-axis CNC machining technology is more flexible to process.
Introduction of Blue Elephant CNC 4-axis CNC router
The 4-axis woodworking CNC machining center is equipped with a tilting and rotating two-axis rotating system in the X, Y, Z orthogonal three-axis drive system. The X, Y, and Z coordinates determine the tool position, and the two rotation coordinates determine the tool direction. The two rotation axes can be either tool swing or table rotation.
Application of Blue Elephant CNC 4-axis CNC router in Furniture Industry：
At present, the woodworking machine tool industry has started from the popularization of numerical control technology, and gradually develops into the direction of complete set, high-end and large-scale. On one 4-axis machining equipment, multiple operations can be completed such as turning, milling, engraving, drilling, boring, reaming, sawing, slotting, sanding, etc..
Compared with the traditional 3-axis CNC router, the 4-axis cnc router has many advantages when processing furniture based on solid wood components.
—High level of automation
Most or all of the machining of the work piece can be completed in one setup, which not only ensures the machining accuracy of the work piece, but also improves the machining efficiency.
—High speed milling
High-speed milling can transform the traditional multi-pass machining process into a high-speed machining process, reducing the number of machining steps and avoiding the cumulative accuracy errors caused by multiple process operations.
With self-diagnosis and self-repair function. Throughout the working state, the system performs self-diagnosis and inspection on the CNC system itself and various devices connected to it at any time.
— Simple process
It has strong adaptability, high flexibility and good flexibility to machined parts. The process of processing complex work pieces is single, saving a lot of time and other equipment investment.
Various machining centers equipped with automatic tool changers can simultaneously perform milling, boring, drilling, turning, reaming, reaming, tapping and other processes on the same machine. The modern five-axis machining center also adopts multi-spindle and polyhedral cutting methods, which can simultaneously cut different parts of a part in different ways.
With the function of automatic parameter setting and automatic tool management, dynamic feed forward and predictive calculation, adaptive fuzzy control, etc.
