MultiAxis Machining

Machining is unquestionably the most versatile of all manufacturing processes. More properly, the concept of machining encompasses a broad range of processes, including a number of radically new techniques. Machining is most frequently considered as comprising a family of processes that involve relative motion between a tool and a workpiece resulting in material removal to form a desired shape.

Five Axis Precision Machining allows machining of all 5 sides in one setup. While this can certainly be a cost saving factor, 5 Axis machining is used more often for complex contour work, which may need simultaneous movement of all 5 Axes. Current generation 5 Axis machines offer excellent tolerances - as close as 3 microns. KEYWORDS for this process: multitasking, five-axis, 5-axis
