5 axis milling allows for the machining of incredibly complex parts in a fraction of the time. In fact, this precision engineering process can often machine whole parts in a single set-up, reducing lead time and increasing productivity to the financial benefit of our clients.
In addition to efficiency, 5 axis machining also offers a superior level of accuracy in comparison to machines with fewer axes. A CNC ensures 5 axis machining operations always produce precision results, which makes this method popular for industries where quality is critical.
Another reason why 5 axis CNC is an industry-leading precision engineering process is that the cutting tool and table can be tilted to always maintain the optimum cutting position and a constant chip load. This capability serves to avoid collision with the tool holder and offer better access to part geometry, improving cycle time as well as tool life.
