Lowest cost per part than all other CNC machining operations. Very high production capabilities. These systems are essentially milling machines or lathes enhanced with additional degrees of freedom. For example, 5-axis CNC milling centers allow the rotation of the machine bed or the toolhead or both in addition to the three linear axes of movement. The advanced capabilities of these machines come at an increased cost. They require both specialized machinery and also operators with expert knowledge.

Lowest cost per part than all other CNC machining operations. Very high production capabilities. These systems are essentially milling machines or lathes enhanced with additional degrees of freedom. For example, 5-axis CNC milling centers allow the rotation of the machine bed or the toolhead or both in addition to the three linear axes of movement.
The advanced capabilities of these machines come at an increased cost. They require both specialized machinery and also operators with expert knowledge. For highly complex or topology optimized metal parts, 3D printing is usually a more suitable option though.
Indexed 5-axis CNC milling During machining the cutting tool can only move along three linear axis. Between operations the bed and the toolhead can rotate, giving access to the workpiece from a different angle. The key benefit of these systems is that they eliminate the need of manually repositioning the workpiece. This way parts with more complex geometries can be manufactured faster and at higher accuracy than in a 3-axis CNC mill.
They lack though the true freeform capabilities of continuous 5-axis CNC machines. Produces parts with features that do not align with one of the main axes at a higher accuracy. Higher cost than 3-axis CNC machining. Cannot produce very accurately contoured surfaces. Continuous 5-axis CNC milling The cutting tool can move along three linear and two rotational axes relative to the workpiece.
All five axes can move at the same during all machining operations. They allow, however, for the movement of all five axes at the same time during all machining operations. These advanced capabilities come of course at a high cost, as both expensive machinery and highly-trained machinists are needed. Manufactures complex parts at an accuracy that is not possible with any other process. Highest cost per part of all CNC machining. Tool access restrictions still apply. Mill-turning CNC centers The workpiece is attached to a spindle that can either rotate at high speed like a lathe or position it at a precise angle like a 5-axis CNC mill.
Lathe and milling cutting tools are used to remove material from the workpiece, forming the part. A variation of the mill-turning centers are swiss-style lathes, which have typically higher precession. Mill-turning systems take advantage of both the high productivity of CNC turning and the geometric flexibility of CNC milling. Lowest cost of all 5-axis CNC machining systems. Most suitable for parts with a cylindrical outline.
To summarize 3-axis CNC milling machines manufacture parts with relatively simple geometries with excellent accuracy and at a low cost. CNC lathes have the lowest cost per unit, but are only suitable for part geometries with rotational symmetry.
Indexed 5-axis CNC milling machines manufacture parts with features that do not align with one of the main axes quickly and with very high accuracy. Use the table below for a rough estimate of the cost per hour of the different CNC machines. CNC machine type.
Geschiedenis[ bewerken brontekst bewerken ] CNC ontstond in de late jaren 50, eerst nog vele jaren met analoge computers en veel later met digitale computers. De numerieke besturingstechniek is als zoveel technische vernieuwingen ontstaan uit een militaire behoefte. De Koreaanse Oorlog heeft de ontwikkeling sterk versneld doordat er grote vraag was naar zeer nauwkeurige onderdelen van vliegtuigen en wapensystemen. Eind jaren zestig werden CNC-besturingen ook op grote schaal in Europa gebouwd. Pas nadat de grote Japanse leveranciers als Fanuc zich op deze markt geworpen hebben is de CNC-techniek tot algemeen aanvaarde productietechniek geworden.
