With the development of numerical control technology, multi axis machining control centers are becoming more and more widely used. As the basis of modern mechanical manufacturing technology, CNC machining technology has caused significant changes in the mechanical manufacturing process. Compared with traditional processing technology, modern numerical control processing technology is significantly different in many aspects such as processing technology, processing process control, processing equipment and so on. Generally speaking, multi-axis CNC machining refers to more than 4 axis CNC machining, and the representative one is 5-axis CNC machining.
Multi-axis CNC machining can control the linkage of more than 4 coordinate axes at the same time, combining functions such as CNC milling, CNC boring, and CNC drilling. With the rapid development of mold manufacturing technology, higher requirements are put forward on the processing capacity and processing efficiency of machining centers. Therefore, multi-axis CNC machining technology has achieved unprecedented development.
(1) Reduce benchmark conversion and improve machining accuracy.
The process integration of multi-axis CNC machining not only improves the effectiveness of the process, but also because the parts only need to be clamped once during the entire machining process, the machining accuracy is easier to guarantee.
(2) Reduce the number of fixtures and floor space.
Although the price of a single piece of equipment for a multi-axis CNC machining center is relatively high, due to the shortening of the process chain and the reduction in the number of equipment, the number of fixtures, workshop area and equipment maintenance costs have also been reduced.
(3) Shorten the production process chain and simplify production management.
The complete machining of the multi-axis CNC machine tool greatly shortens the production process chain, and because only the machining task is handed over to one job post, it not only simplifies production management and scheduling, but also significantly improves transparency. The more complex the work piece, the more obvious its advantages over traditional production methods with dispersed processes. At the same time, due to the shortening of the production process chain, the number of products in progress will inevitably decrease, which can simplify production management, thereby reducing the cost of production operation and management.
(4) Shorten the new product development cycle.
For companies in the aerospace, automotive and other fields, some new product parts and molding molds have complex shapes and high precision requirements. Therefore, multi-axis CNC machining centers with high flexibility, high precision, high integration and complete processing capabilities can It solves the precision and cycle problems of complex parts processing in the process of new product development, greatly shortens the development cycle and improves the success rate of new products.
