What is a 5 axis CNC Router?

Types of 5 axis CNC processing centers

According to the machine structure, the CNC five axis processing center mainly falls into three types. They are the head/head type, table/head type, and table/table type.

As the name suggests, the head/head type machine has two rotary axes on the head. It has a rotating head, which can rotate by 360 degrees around the Z axis. And it also has an A axis that rotates around the X axis in more than 90 degrees. Features of this type machine include flexible spindle working, large working area, and good milling surface quality.

The table/head type refers to the machines whose rotary axes locate respectively in the table and the head. This type of 5 axis CNC milling machine has the largest flexibility. Because it can be the combination of any two axes among the A, B, and C axes. But most table/head type 5 axis machines adopt the combination of B and C axes. Such structure is simple and flexible. It can realize 5-sided machining with low manufacturing costs.

The table/table type has two rotary axes located on the table. The worktable mounded on the machine bed can rotate around the X axis, which is the A axis. Its general working angle of the A axis is from +30° to -120°. There is also another rotary table in the middle of the worktable. It rotates around the Z axis and is called the C axis. This type of 5 axis machine usually has a small-sized worktable with a small loading ability.

How is a 5 axis CNC Router used?

The 5 axis CNC Router machine is designed to provide high-speed and high-quality processing for various materials. Include but not limited to wood, plastic, nonferrous metals, and other composite materials, 5 axis technology provides various new applications, including:

1.Trimming of thermoformed plastics, molded plastic, and composite parts:

The flexibility of the 5 axis CNC router machine enables it to provide high-quality finishing and trimming functions on many plastic products.

2.Deep cavity mold making:

On the three-axis CNC router machine, deep cavity mold manufacturing requires you to use longer tools to achieve sufficient depth. With longer tools, the user has to cut down the cutting speed to prevent breakage. By adding additional motion to the 5 axis CNC machining, shorter tools can be used and higher cutting speed can be achieved.

3.Molded plywood chairs and decorative furniture parts:

5 axis routing technology can make the unique molding for all kinds of materials, enabling you to turn the creative and dynamic design into reality.

4.Fine 3D carving:

The increase in cutting tool motion on the 5 axis CNC router machine enables it to carve complex designs into a piece of material. It enables you to capture the details of the design in the work to be done.

5 axis CNC Router Machine Industry Application:

Furniture industry: processing of all kinds of cabinets, cabinet doors, chairs and tables, and the overall customization of kitchen and bathroom.

Decoration industry: PCB, PVC, MDF, stone, plexiglass, copper and aluminum and other soft metal processing;

Precision Industry: cutting large 3D(three-dimensional) parts in the automotive, aerospace and ship industries;

Mold industry: mold, foam mold, car models, train models, aviation models, ship models, paraffin mold, and other large non-metal molds.

Advantages of 5 axis CNC machining

Improved surface finish

Its configuration helps create surfaces with a high-quality finish. The CNC router bits can keep closer to the workpieces. The additional two axes allow the machine to use short tools. So the tools will not vibrate too much, which results in good surface quality.

Cut complex shapes

The additional two rotary axes allow you to realize the design and machining of intricate shapes. All five axes require various parts. The extra movement of this structure gives space for the manufacturing angels and arcs. This can only be done with multiple settings and specific fixtures in the past. But with 5 axis machining, you can complete the whole cutting and milling process with only one set. This also saves much production time and increases working efficiency.

Improved accuracy and tool life

The 5 axis machining process improves product accuracy by reducing settings. More settings mean more potential space for errors. So one setting can greatly reduce the risks of making errors.

The shorter the CNC router tools, the longer their service life. 5 axis machines allow the machine head to be closer to the tool surface. So this guarantees higher cutting speed and less vibration, which will eventually result in longer tool life.

High efficiency

When using this kind of router, we can always make the mill ends of the tool contact with the workpiece at a perfect, effective point. The 5 axis machining can effectively reduce the production time and auxiliary time of parts. It has a large spindle speed and feeds range, which enables the machine to have a powerful cutting capacity. The five axis machining has rapid movement and positioning ability, and can cut and mill products at a high speed. This reduces the turnaround time of semi-finished products and improves production efficiency and accuracy.
