What is the difference between three axis, 3+2 axis and five axis
Usually we often mention the 3 axis, 3+2 axis, 5 axis and other processing schemes, what is the difference between them?Let me introduce to you:
3 axis machining mode
3 axis machining by linear feed axis X, Y, Z for processing.Machining features: the direction of the cutting tool remains constant throughout the cutting path.The cutting state of the tool tip cannot be perfect in real time.
3+2 axis machining mode
The two rotating shafts first fix the cutting tool in an inclined position, and then the feed axis X, Y, Z for processing.The machine, also known as a positioning five-axis machine tool, can be programmed using Siemens' Cycle800 function.The Cycle800 is a static plane transformation that can be used to define a rotating working plane in space through 3+2 axis machine tool machining (such as a rotary head or turntable).In this working plane, 2D or 3D machining operations can be programmed.
Machining characteristics: the rotary axis is always rotated to the machining plane perpendicular to the cutter shaft position for processing, processing during the machining plane remains fixed.
5 axis machining mode
5 axis machining by the feed axis X, Y, Z and rotation axis A, B, C of X, Y, Z any five linear interpolation motion.Siemens' Traori motion conversion instruction supports 5-axis conversion very well.
.In the process of moving along the whole path, the direction of the tool can be optimized and the linear motion of the tool can be carried out.In this way, the optimal cutting condition can be maintained throughout the path
