Advantages of 5-Axis Machining

Oftentimes, modern machining requires multiple simultaneous axis movement. In the past, such parts could be produced, but it required multiple setups and multiple machines, usually a combination of turning and milling machines. Thanks to advances in machine design, machine controls, servo and tooling technology, we can now accomplish multi-axis simultaneous machining on a single platform. Having this capability has significant ...

Advantages of 5-Axis Machining

One of the most frequently used type of CNC machines today is five axis. These types of machines are ideally suited for producing complex shapes and sizes of machined components, in many different materials. Demand in almost all markets continues to require tighter tolerance and better finish callouts. The design of the 5-axis machines addresses those issues. There have been ...

Machine Tool Trends

Multi-axis machine tools are definitely trending in the aerospace manufacturing universe. The multi-axis capability and being able to machine 5 axes simultaneously is a great benefit in producing complex shapes. In the aerospace, space, and defense world, tolerances continue to tighten while customer cost reduction expectations continue downward. There is only one way to meet both expectations and that is ...
