Aluminum alloy is a very good material for parts. Its low density can achieve lightweight parts and its strength is very high even comparable to steel. In addition, its corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity are very good. But there is a major defect that precision machining is very difficult, but the emergence of five-axis machining technology has solved this problem well. Today, let’s take a look at the advantages of five-axis machining of this aluminum alloy part.
1. Reduce processing time
In the processing, the flat-bottomed end mill is used to maintain the vertical surface of the complex mold processing surface, which can greatly reduce the processing time. It is also suitable for side milling with angled surfaces, which can eliminate the rib-like shape caused by the spherical end mill processing. The texture makes the surface quality of the aluminum alloy mold more ideal and reduces the workload of manual milling and manual work required to clean the mold surface.
2. Improve processing accuracy
Through this technology, the problem that the workpiece needs to be repositioned at a complex angle and needs to be debugged multiple times can be solved not only shortens the time, but also greatly reduces the error generated, and the large cost of tooling and fixtures required when installing the workpiece It also saves money and the machine tool can also add complex parts, such as the drilling taper processing cavity recesses required for complex surfaces, which cannot be achieved by traditional methods.
3. High production efficiency
It can effectively reduce the processing time and auxiliary time of the parts. The range of the spindle speed and feed rate of the linkage machining center is large, allowing the machine tool to perform powerful cutting with a large amount of cutting. At present, when this technology is entering high-speed machining, the rapid movement and positioning of moving parts And high-speed cutting reduces the turnaround time of semi-finished products and improves production efficiency.
In addition, this kind of five-axis machining equipment for aluminum alloy parts is relatively easier to realize intelligence. At present, network-based mobile control methods such as tablet computers, mobile phones and wearable devices will become more and more popular. This type of operating device can quickly react to switch screens, uploading or downloading data, and significantly reduces the misoperation rate. Compared with traditional three-axis and four-axis machine tools, this kind of five-axis linkage equipment is undoubtedly more capable of achieving automation.
