By replacing onerous manual processes with an automated solution, you can turn your imagination into reality.
5-axis machining provides infinite possibilities as to the part sizes and shapes you can effectively process. The term “5-axis” refers to the number of directions in which the cutting tool can move. On a 5-axis machining center, the cutting tool moves across the X, Y and Z linear axes as well as rotates on the A and B axes to approach the workpiece from any direction. In other words, you can process five sides of a part in a single setup.
5 Axis Foam Router
Foams are used in a wide variety of industries including aerospace, packaging, movies, sporting goods, automotive, and furniture manufacturing. Foam is a popular choice for producing molds, models and prototypes, because it’s inexpensive and readily available. Utilizing foam in this capacity gives machinists and technicians the freedom to experiment with multiple layouts and options, without worrying about expense. Foam materials are most commonly seen being used in the mould and pattern industry.
However, machining foam can be difficult due to the material itself, which is lightweight and non-heat resistant. These issues, combined with the often complex nature of the 3-D foam shapes being produced, necessitate an advanced, high-performance cutting and shaping solution.
5 axis moving gantry machining centers are ideal for cutting and shaping foam in a variety of industrial and manufacturing applications.
