What is 5-Axis Milling?
5-Axis milling is a form of CNC multi-axis machining that enables robust range of motion during the milling process, reducing change times and opportunities for defects. A 5-axis machining center allows access to five sides of a part, ensuring ultimate accuracies in the alignment of features from one side of the part to another. A multiple pallet system provides flexibility to have multiple parts running simultaneously, allowing for expediting machining of even complex, precision details.
The Benefits of 5-Axis CNC Machining
Traditionally, machining practices for parts with critical tolerances from one side to another are done with multiple operations involving fixtures and locating devices. The issue is, with each start-and-stop event arises inconsistencies that contribute to out-of-tolerance parts. This, and the time spent changing over tips and repositioning parts is time added to the production process.
5-Axis CNC machining allows complete machining to be undertaken at the same time, without the need to stop and adjust. Because 5-axis CNC machine covers up to five sides of a part in one operation, it ensures much tighter tolerances are upheld, for ultimate accuracies in the alignment of features from one side of the part to another. The result of 5-axis milling is evident in product quality.
Our Equipment and Capabilities
We utilize state-of-the-art 5-axis CNC machining centers with multiple pallet systems (up to 40 pallets), giving us the flexibility to have many different parts running simultaneously. This allows us to be flexible enough to satisfy customer delivery requirements. Our equipment includes:
- (2) Matsuura MAM 72-3VS, 5-axis machining centers with 40 pallets
- Work piece size capability 300mm diameter x 250mm height
Our capabilities also go beyond knowledge of 5-axis milling. We can mill complex materials across a variety of alloys and plastics—including complex stainless and nickel alloys.
