The machining equipment adopted by Dongguan Emet Cutting Tools Limited is four-axis and five-axis equipment. The use of four-axis and five-axis machining equipment for production can not only greatly improve the machining efficiency, but also meet the production requirements of high difficulty and high precision products. Five-axis machining is a mode of numerical control machine tool machining, what we now use at ordinary times is three-axis three linkage machining center and four-axis machining center. Three axis machining center has X axis, Y axis and Z axis these three axis; while the four-axis refers to the X-axis, Y-axis, Z-axis and A-axis of four axis machining center, and the A-axis here refers to the axis rotating around the X-axis. The five-axis machining center refers to the X-axis, Y-axis, Z-axis and A-axis, as well as B-axis, which refers to the rotating axis around Y-axis. And in nowadays, this technology has been widely used in shipbuilding, aerospace, automobile, light industry, medical and other high precision instrument manufacturing fields.
What are the strengths of using five axis equipment for machining?
(1) Reducing machining time;
(2) Enhancing machining percision;
(3) Improving machining efficiency.
