vertical machining center with 4th axis, also known as the 4-axis machining center, it is equipped with a four-axis indexing head based on the 3-axis machining center.
What is a 4th machining center?
Generally, when the workpiece is not positioned in space, there are six degrees of freedom, XYZ three linear displacement degrees of freedom and its corresponding ABC three rotational displacement degrees of freedom.
The six degrees of freedom usually express three linear axes in XYZ of Cartesian Cartesian coordinates and use the corresponding ABC to express the three axes of rotation.
For example, when a multi-axis CNC machine tool, that is, a machining center, is designed, it is necessary to set the number of axes according to the machining target.
The common one in the market is the 3th CNC machining center, which has three linear displacement axes of XYZ. The so-called four-axis machining center generally adds a rotating shaft, usually called the fourth shaft. The corresponding machining center is the 4th machining center.
