Taiwan Pinnacle's Versatile 5-axis CNC Machining Center

Postby Martin Su » Sun Sep 20, 2015 6:12 am

A CNC five-axis machine tool has the following degrees of freedom: x-axis, y-axis, z-axis, b-axis, and c-axis. The following article illustrations explain the b-axis and c-axis.

Quick explanation of the five axes.

X-axis and Y-axis form a plane. Think of it as a sheet of paper. The machine tool drill-bit can touch any point on the target-object surface.

Z-axis allows drilling a hole to a precise depth that is perpendicular to the surface.

B-axis allows drilling at an angle.

C-axis allows for the precise drilling of circles or arcs. I think C-axis is necessary in the precise drilling of hard metals (like steel or titanium).

With all five axes (X, Y, Z, B, and C), a CNC machine tool allows the machining of any conceivable aerospace or automotive part. The most important metric for a five-axis CNC machine tool is precision. Is it 70 microns, 7 microns, 3 microns, or sub-micron?
