Technology: 5-axis precision milling

Precision machining center:

Task: First part - good part

  • The first part has to fit — no adjustments allowed
  • Processing of the 12 upper and 4 lateral surfaces
  • Surface milling at different working angles from B = 0° to 90°
  • Use of various tools from 0.1 to 6 mm for the different surfaces

Procedure:

  • Use of the KERN warm-up cycle
  • Laser tool calibration via WKZ laser
  • Exploitation of the high 5-axis stability of the machine

Result:

  • Inner surfaces 1 – 12 are within 4µm
  • Outer surfaces 13 – 16 (machined at B = 90°) are within 2.5µm of A
