Advantages and characteristics of four axis CNC machining center

At present, there are many ways and equipment used in machining centers, among which CNC four-axis machining center is a common machining method. At first, three-axis machining is generally used. Four axis machining is better in terms of performance, function and adaptability. Today we will follow Xiaobian to understand the application performance and processing characteristics of 4-axis CNC machining center.

Although CNC four-axis machining is now very common in the industry, there is not much theoretical data in the process of development. Therefore, it often encounters various problems in practical application, such as the problem of cutting tools, which will also affect the application efficiency of the overall equipment.

Four axis machining centers are mainly divided into two types: horizontal and vertical. The two types have their own characteristics. Generally, if the application is horizontal, a b-axis can be added to the y-axis. The programming method is similar to that of the 3-axis; It can rotate 4 sides to achieve the highest accuracy requirements. Compared with three-axis, four-axis is generally used for the needs that cannot be processed by three-axis machine tools, such as depth and angle limits, less than parts, common fan blades, worms and other products.

In fact, many CNC four-axis machining centers evolved from CNC milling machines. The difference between them is whether they have the ability to automatically exchange machining tools. The former can well complete the automatic exchange, has the automatic tool change in one clamping, and completes a variety of processing functions. In addition, the four-axis machining center can also complete the linkage control of more than three axes, which can better process the equipment with complex surfaces.
To sum up, the four axis machining center is an efficient and high-precision CNC machine tool. It only needs one clamping to complete the processing of multiple processes. Together, it also has perfect tool function and automatic tool change function.
