5 Axis CNC Machining

DDPROTOTYPE adopts ultra-precision 5-axis cnc machining to reduce cost and delivery cycle, with the highest accuracy of 0.005mm. We focus on synchronous 5-axis CNC machining contour and machining positioning. It requires not only precise machines to perform this level of processing. Our 5-axis cnc milling engineer is a professional mechanic. They design, program, fixture build, set up and CMM check components themselves, and run operations from beginning to end. 5-axis CNC machining services greatly increase the possibility of creating parts of various shapes and sizes. We are an experienced rapid prototyping company that can provide customized solutions to help you cope with the most difficult manufacturing challenges.

5-axis machining center is increasing 2 of A/B/C rotating axes on the basis of 3-axis, which is characterized by the increase of the two rotating axes and linear axis linkage and structure. The 5-axis linkage makes the machining efficiency faster. Inclinable C-axis structure, larger bearing, better rigidity.

For some complex multi-faceted machining products, it is difficult to achieve higher accuracy in 3-axis machining, and need much manual intervention, while 5-axis processing can achieve rapid positioning processing, mainly to increase the processing accuracy of products from the following angles:

  • 1) Introducing 5-axis fixture;

  • 2) Reduce clamping process;

  • 3) There is no manual multiple clamping, The clamping error is reduced;

  • 4) Only need to find a coordinate system, reduce manual errors;

  • 5) Reduce the length-diameter ratio of the tool and reduce the risk of bouncing knife.

5-axes can improve the processing efficiency and surface processing quality of the workpiece from the following factors:

  • 1) Use a tool with relatively short length and diameter to improve the processing stability;

  • 2) Reduce the EDM process, the whole surface is more even;

  • 3) Use the side edge of the ball knife to process and improve the surface quality of the workpiece.

5-axis CNC machining has unique infinite possibilities in dealing with the size and shape of parts effectively. Like 3-axis machine tools, cutting tools in 5-axis CNC machining centers move along X, Y and Z axes, but also rotate on A and B axes – allowing cutting tools to approach parts in any direction. When using all five axes, experienced mechanics can achieve extremely complex geometry and high accuracy. DDPROTOTYPE is skilled, experienced CNC Machinists and programmers can process complex shapes, undercuts and angles – all of which are started in one setting.
The ability to machine parts in a single setting not only increases the accuracy of the process, but also reduces the machining costs, management costs and labor time, so that the cost of each part is the lowest. Five-axis CNC machining center eliminates some shortcomings of traditional CNC machining technology, including various settings, parts transfer and inspection, prototype machining and errors related to personnel participation/interference.

1 Although 3-axis CNC machining has its advantages, it does bring some manufacturing constraints. The main difference is that the rotating elements of A and B axes are introduced in 5-axis CNC machining. In addition to faster generation of complex shapes, the production process of 5-axis parts can also achieve higher quality surface finish.

2 Higher accuracy: 5-axis CNC machining and milling provide precision that 3-axis CNC machining cannot replicate, which is critical if your product must meet stringent quality and performance specifications. Five-axis machining also eliminates the need to move workpieces between multiple workstations, thereby reducing the risk of errors.

3 Shorter delivery cycle: The enhanced function of the 5-axis machine can shorten production time, thus shortening the delivery cycle of production projects. This allows you to provide better service to your customer base.

4 Using shorter cutting tools: It is feasible to use shorter cutting tools to produce high quality parts, which can reduce the vibration that often occurs when processing deep cavities. This usually results in a smoother surface finish.
