There are two types of 4 axis CNC router as we know, one is 3 axis CNC with additional rotary device, the machine x.y.z axis and rotary axis can work at same time, this machine mainly used in cylinder material producing, such as stair railing, table legs etc. another one is 3axis CNC with one rotating spindle, this spindle can rotate 180 degree when it working, it can work on 4 sides of the work piece, ,mainly used in mold making field.
5 axis CNC router is also called the five-axis machining center. It is a CNC machining center with high technology content and high precision for machining complex curved surfaces. The 5 axis simultaneous machining center system is the only means to solve the processing of impellers, blades, marine propellers, heavy-duty generator rotors, turbine rotors, large diesel engine crankshafts, etc.
5 axis simultaneous machining center has high efficiency and high precision, and the work piece can be assembled in one time. It can make the processing of modern molds such as automotive parts and aircraft structural parts. The five axis machining center and the pentahedron machining center are very different. The 5 axis machining have five axis x,y,z,a,c, the xyz and ac axis form a 5 axis simultaneous machining, which is good at space surface machining, profile machining, hollow machining, punching, oblique hole, beveling, etc. The pentahedron machining center is similar to the three-axis machining center, it can do five faces at the same time, but it can not be shaped, slanted, cut, etc.
The new style 5 axis CNC router has obtained two invention patents and four utility model patents. The CNC machine tool can process complex curved surfaces of aluminum and various non-metallic materials, and is suitable for training of various model making and five-link processing talents.
5 axis CNC machining center innovatively adopts a new parallel spherical wheel train as a swinging cutter head to form a hybrid machine tool. Under the premise of the same volume and weight, it has the advantages of high processing precision, large processing range, high rigidity, convenient control and high cost performance.
