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 faces simultaneously. Same as other CNCs, 5 axis router's basic machining operates is 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, avoid interference.
5 Axis CNC Router 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.
Most 5 Axis CNC Router is used for 5 axis wood carving machine, some suppliers offer a kind of 5 axis router with table moving and rotating, it is also a good choice in some occasion.
5 Axis CNC Router Advantages of 3 Most Important Points:
Power machining capacity, avoid tool interference:
5 axis CNC router has a kind of 5 faces machining capacity, the tool bits can machine more places in different directions, and avoid tool interference, this is better than the tool's up and down of 3 axes, and tool's swing in one direction of 4 axes;
Reduce setups, save time:
The additional 2 axis or the rotation & swing of the spindle makes the tool bit reach more spaces than 3 axes or 4 axes CNC, so no need multi-setups to meet the special machining requirements of position and direction;
High efficiency, lower cost:
When using this kind routers, we can always make the mill ends of the tool contact with the workpiece at a perfect, effective point, then we can set a higher feeding speed, less heat generated, but get a more quality surface, and this operation also makes tool life longer;
- 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.
