Why 5-Axis Machining?
Two decades back Industries were reluctant moving from manual programming to CNC programming and today most of the companies to stay ahead in competition moved from traditional method to conventional machining technique with the help of CAD/CAM Technology. Gone are the days of Manual Programming, and with any business investing in the latest technology is a requirement to stay on top and compete effectively.
Machinist thinks they don’t have 5-axis work. Every shop has work that would benefit from a 5-axis machine because a 5-axis machining center facilitates 5-sided machining. So, even if you don’t have simultaneous 5-axis work, such as impellers or turbines, the parts you are producing on your 3-axis machines will be more profitable when you use 5-sided machining on a 5-axis machining center.
