The Future Development Direction of 5-Axis Turning & Milling Compound Machining Center


The 5 axis turning milling integrated processing technology is a typical multi axis processing technology. The 5 axis turning milling integrated processing center is the carrier of the five axis turning milling processing technology. It is a general name for a machine that is mainly used for turning, integrates milling and boring functions, has at least three linear feed axes and two circular feed axes, and is equipped with an automatic tool change system. This kind of turning milling compound machining center is developed on the basis of 3-axis turning center, which is equivalent to the combination of a turning center and a machining center. It is a compound machining technology developed in the 1990s. It is an advanced machining technology that integrates modern advanced control technology, precision measurement technology and CAD/CAM application technology on the basis of traditional mechanical design technology and precision manufacturing technology.


The Future Development Direction of 5-Axis Turning & Milling Compound Machining Center

The progressiveness of the 5 axis turning milling integrated machining center is reflected in its design concept. In the general concept of mechanical processing, the processing of a part can range from one or two processes to hundreds of processes. It needs to be completed by processing multiple equipment, and tools and fixtures should be prepared. For complex parts, it takes three or five months to prepare a set of tooling. Even if economic costs are not considered, many commodity opportunities and strategic opportunities may be missed in three or five months. Tihao Machinery is the main product of the company with rotary center, lead screw, shaft processing, CNC lathe processing, tool handle and tool bar, and collet connecting rod! In the mass production industries such as automobiles and household appliances, in order to improve efficiency and automation level, automated production lines are widely used. The huge logistics system constitutes a very important part of the automatic line. It is also a part that takes up money, occupies land, and has frequent failures. For the processing of complex surfaces, logistics is a big problem. The multiple clamping and datum conversion of parts sometimes lead to unnecessary processes and loss of machining accuracy. The 5 axis turning milling compound machining center solves this problem from the design concept. It is a fixture that can complete all or most of the processes within the processing range, realizing a leap from compound processing to complete processing.

5 axis turning milling compound machining center has a history of nearly 20 years since its birth, and its technology has been mature and accepted and recognized by users at home and abroad. From the current trend, the main development directions are as follows:

1. More efficient: By configuring double power heads, double spindles, double tool holders and other functions, multiple tools can be processed simultaneously to improve processing efficiency.

2. Wider processing range: More process integration can be realized by adding special function modules. For example, gear processing, internal and external grinding, deep hole processing, cavity processing, laser quenching, online measurement and other functions are integrated into the turning and milling center to truly complete the processing of all complex parts.

3. The structure modularization and function can be quickly reorganized: The function of the five axis turning and milling center can be quickly reorganized, which is an important condition for it to quickly respond to the market demand and seize the market, and the structure modularization is the basis for the function of the 5 axis turning and milling center to be quickly reorganized. Many products of some technologically advanced manufacturers have achieved structural modular design, and are making efforts to achieve rapid functional reorganization.

4. Larger scale: Because large parts are generally complicated in structure, requiring more parts and processes to be processed, and time-consuming and laborious in installation and positioning, one of the main advantages of turning milling composite processing is to reduce the time for multiple reinstallation, adjustment and clamping of parts in the process of multi process and multi process processing, so it is advantageous to use turning milling center for composite processing. Therefore, at present, 5-axis turning milling compound machining center is developing towards large-scale.

The advanced concept of 5 axis turn milling technology is to improve product quality and shorten product manufacturing cycle. Therefore, this technology has considerable advantages in the application of military industry, aviation, aerospace, shipbuilding and some civil industries, especially in the processing of some complex shaped special-shaped parts in the aerospace field.

The Role of 5-Axis CNC Turning Milling Compound In The Field Of Machining

5 axis CNC turning milling compound machine is suitable for products with complex structures and unique shapes, or precision parts with high application and precision requirements, such as mold parts, aviation parts, aerospace accessories, etc., which can greatly improve the accuracy of products and shorten the processing time.


In order to eliminate the secondary clamping error to improve the processing accuracy of parts and improve the processing efficiency of parts, multiple parts can be processed at the same time or multiple processes can be used to complete the processing of a part at the same time. In the process plan arrangement, the entire processing plan should be more suitable for the processing of such equipment, rather than the combination of milling and turning. The turning milling compound machine tool itself is a very complex production line.


Turning milling compound machines not only combine machining centers with CNC lathes, but also have many complex and practical special functions, which are called internal circulation in the industry. These functions are also the value of such machine tools. Therefore, making good use of these functions plays a very important role in the performance of machine tools.


Theoretically, turning milling grinding compound processing equipment can effectively improve product quality and production and processing efficiency. In practical application, if you want to play the role of compound machines, you need to strengthen the relevant knowledge and basic training of operators and technicians, effectively form productivity, and quickly respond to product research and development.
