Introduction of five-axis machining center
The five-sided machining center integrates the functions of a vertical machining center and a horizontal machining center. The five-sided machining center can complete all side and top surface processing after clamping the workpiece at a time, except for the mounting surface. The five-sided machining center is known in the industry. Universal machining center and compound machining center.
The five-sided centered spindle and worktable are also vertical, the same as the vertical machining center. The five-face machining center is divided into two types according to the structure. One is that the spindle can be rotated 90°, which can be used for vertical and horizontal processing. Its structure is the same as that of the gantry machining center, except for the spindle; the other is that the spindle cannot be rotated. , And the worktable can be rotated by 90°, and the workpiece can be clamped once to complete the processing of five faces. It has the vertical structure characteristic of the spindle and the worktable of the vertical machining center, and the rotating structure of the worktable of the horizontal machining center.
Advantages of five-axis machining center structure
The five-axis machining center minimizes the number of workpiece installations during workpiece installation, avoids accuracy errors caused by multiple installations of workpieces, and also saves the time of multiple installations of workpieces, thereby improving production efficiency and reducing processing costs.
Disadvantages of five-axis machining center structure
The biggest disadvantage of the five-axis machining center is high manufacturing cost, expensive price, large area of the machine tool, complex machine structure, etc. Therefore, few customers in the industry use this type of machining center, and the most used in many types of machining centers is Two types of vertical machining centers and horizontal machining centers are followed by gantry machining centers, while five-sided machining centers are rarely used.
