5-axis Machining Center
The 5-axis machining center is a machine with the capability of moving its cutting tool in 5 directions. With a 5-axis machining, the cutting tool can move at X, Y, and Z and rotates on the A and B axes. It means that using a 5-axis machining center allows you to process five-part sides for just a single setup. This machine provides limitless possibilities with the variety of shapes and sizes you can process effectively.
5-axis machining center design to provide various and unique advantages including:
- Minimizes setups
- Produces less scrap
- Fast cycle time
- Increases the spindle uptime
- Lessen the number of highly trained individuals
- Provide the ability for many open possibilities
The 5-axis machining center is designed to produce the following common & complex parts.
- Turbine blades
- Satellite parts
- Orthopedic and implants
A 5-axis machine is capable of producing a variety of machining parts that is useful for different industry like:
- Aerospace industry
- Automotive industry
- Energy industry
- Jobs shops
- Medical Industry
Performing auto-tuning for the 5-axis machining tool center will allow you to:
- Perform quickly and accurately tuning
- Operate the auto-tuning properly even if you don’t have a high level of skill
- Compensate up to 10 errors (geometric), including the volumetric accuracy
- Adjust and auto-tune in just 10 minutes instead of 5-10 hours using manual methods
The simultaneous 5-axis technology uplifts the limits on part geometries types that you can machine. The 5-axis machines unconstrained the curiosity of engineers and reformulate the overall capabilities by allowing you to fabricate highly composite components for just a lone setup.
In terms of Offline Robot Programming (OLRP), TCP or Tool Center Point defines the required exact operating point of the robot. TCP is also the point for determining the positional coordinates of the robots. It is handled in the right recorded point location and allows to shorten the time cycle, improving the machined surface quality, and simplifying the operation.
The technology cycle is basically preset routines with the application of best practice techniques that result in significant depletion of programming time. There are these 3 basic cycles that cover extensive operations such as:
- Handling Cycles – tool-oriented functions including regulating feed rate that is comparable to table load and sorting tools automatically.
- Measuring Cycles – it includes the capabilities to adjust and recheck the machine’s volumetric accuracy as well as tool scanning, fourth & fifth-axis kinematics, and workpiece measurement.
- Machining Cycles – include a module just for the 5-axis turn &milling, grinding, and gear generation. The automated tuning cycle could adjust machining specifications according to the selectable requirements of the user on surface finish, speed, and accuracy.
