Are 5-axis robots better than 3-axis robots?

Update:19 Feb 2022

Three-axis machining method Three-axis robot

The three-axis machining is performed by the linear feed axes X, Y, and Z. Machining features: During the entire cutting path movement, the tool direction remains unchanged. The cutting state of the tooltip is not perfect in real time. 3+2-axis machining method The two rotary axes first fix the tool in an inclined position, and then use the feed axes X, Y, Z for machining. The machine is also known as a positioning five-axis machine. Rotary work planes in space can be defined by 3+2 axis machining such as turrets or rotary tables. In this work plane, 2D or 3D machining operations can be programmed. Five-axis machining mode

Five-axis machining consists of feed axes X, Y, Z and linear interpolation movements around any five rotation axes A, B, and C of X, Y, and Z.

Machining features: The tool direction can be optimized during the entire path movement, and the tool can move linearly at the same time. This maintains an optimal cut throughout the entire path.

5 axes can process 28 parts simultaneously

How to reflect the advantages of the five-axis machine? Here is an example of processing 28 parts simultaneously. Through the design of the turntable and fixture, the three machining surfaces of the part are combined in a five-axis machining program to achieve the purpose of reducing cycle time.
