What is the Difference Between Different Types of CNC Machining?
By Nice Rapid | Jun 09 , 2020

CNC machining refers to a process method for parts processing on CNC machine tools. The process specifications of CNC machine tool processing and traditional machine tool processing are generally the same, but obvious changes have also occurred. The use of digital information to control parts and tools Displacement mechanical processing method. It is an effective way to solve the problems of parts variety, small batch size, complex shape, high precision, etc., and to achieve efficient and automated processing.

CNC Machining divided into three types, 3-axis, 4-axis and 5-axis CNC Machining. Each type has their advantages.

3-axis CNC machining: generally, refers to three axes that move linearly in different directions, such as up and down, front and back, and left and right. The three axes can only process one surface at a time, which is suitable for processing some disc parts.

3-axis CNC

4 -axis CNC machining: add a rotation axis to the three-axis, generally 360° horizontal plane rotation. But it cannot rotate at high speed, suitable for processing some box parts.

4-axis CNC

5-axis CNC machining: there is one more rotation axis on the four-axis, generally 360° rotation of the upright surface, the five-axis can already be fully processed, and one-time clamping can be achieved, which can reduce clamping costs and reduce product scratches and bruises. It is suitable for processing some multi-station pores and planes, and parts with high processing accuracy requirements, especially parts with strict shape processing accuracy requirements.
