Features and Functions of Five-Axis :

Let's take a look at key features and functions of five-axis machining technology. Spatial positioning. The majority of five-axis tasks involve spatial positioning of the tool, which already generates an enormous gain in flexibility as well as drastically reduces logistical costs by eliminating the number of tools and allowing use of a standard vise instead of fixtures.

Machining deformation of single-sided

Fig. 7, Fig. 8 shows the machining deformation results of the analytical model and FEM. Fig. 7 presents the relationship between sidewall finishing allowance and machining deformation. A positive linear correlation between the sidewall finishing allowance and deformation is identified. In addition, the machining deformation increases gradually with the growth of sidewall finishing allowance.
