Analysis on the advantages of machine tool multi-axis

- Jan 09, 2021-

Multi-axis machine tools are the development trend of machine tools. From 2-axis and 5-axis to the recently popular 41-axis machine tools, there are more and more "axis" of machine tools. Why do people emphasize so much "axis"? What is so special about this 41-axis machine tool developed by DMG Sen, a German-Japanese joint venture? This needs to talk about the advantages of multi-axis machine tools.

The advantages of multi-axis linkage of the machine tool are obvious. In short, there are the following aspects:


  1, can improve the processing accuracy of the workpiece


  Multi-axis machining can effectively reduce the transformation of the reference plane. This kind of machining effectively integrates the processes, which not only improves the effectiveness of the process, but also realizes the one-time clamping of the workpiece, which makes the machining accuracy easier to guarantee.


  2, reduce the number of clamping times and floor space


   In the current market, multi-axis machining equipment is more expensive, but it integrates a variety of processes, reducing the number of equipment, the number of fixtures, workshop area and equipment maintenance costs. To a certain extent, the cost is reduced.


  3, simplify the production process


  Multi-axis CNC machine tools can effectively shorten the production process chain and effectively simplify the production process management. For complex workpiece processing, the advantages of multi-axis CNC equipment are more obvious. The shortening of the production process chain is also conducive to reducing production operation and management costs.


  4, shorten the new product development cycle


   For companies in the aerospace, automotive processing and other fields, new product parts will be relatively complex and require higher precision. This requires equipment with high precision, high flexibility and high integration processing capabilities. Multi-axis machining equipment can do this job well and effectively shorten the development cycle.


   In short, the more "axes" of the machine tool, the better the processing efficiency and accuracy, and the lower the cost. This is why the multi-axis linkage of machine tools is sought after. Our country has also carried out many useful explorations on the multi-axis machine tool. I believe that these high-efficiency multi-axis machine tools can meet us in the near future.
