What Is The 5 Axis Machining Method And Its Advantages?

The linear interpolation motion of the feed axis X, Y, Z and any 5 axis A, B and C around the rotation axis X, Y and Z.Siemens motion conversion directive TRAORI supports 5 axis conversion very well.5 axis machining features: in the process of moving along the whole path, the cutter direction can be optimized, and at the same time, the cutter linear movement.In this way, the optimal cutting condition can be maintained throughout the path.How about the advantages of the five-axis machine? Here is an example of how the haas umc-750p machine can process 28 parts at the same time.Through the design of turntable and fixture, as well as in the five-axis machining program will be part of the three machining surface in a processing program, to achieve the purpose of reducing cycle time.
The turntable can expand the original processing space through accurate positioning.The carefully designed fixture can not only improve the efficiency of processing, but also reduce the idle machine, the operator can also get out of it.For example, to process the first three faces of a part like the one shown below, it takes a total of 264 seconds for each part to be held in a vise (not counting clamping time).Through the design of more compact fixture, make full use of the processing space provided by the turntable, can have the opportunity to process 28 parts at a time.In the production of the fixture, a size of 114mm*114mm*550mm aluminum alloy is selected as the matrix, the positioning pin is selected as the positioning, the use of smaller processing space occupied by the clamping fixture, in order to faster clamping.Then mill the four faces of the matrix, machining one locating pin hole for each part, two slots for avoiding the empty locking jig, and two screw holes for locking. This is all the production steps.The whole set of jig consists of 28 locating pins, 56 locating locking blocks (reusable), 56 screws and wrenches.This fixture design can reduce the original processing time from 264 seconds to 202 seconds (excluding clamping time).That means processing time has been reduced by 23.5 percent.Not only that, because the processing program has combined the three processing surfaces of the parts in a processing program, so the cycle time of a single program becomes 95 minutes, during this period, the machine has been kept processing, without waiting for the operator to frequently load, which will greatly reduce the labor intensity of the operator.
