5-Axis Milling

5 axis CNC machining gives manufacturers the capability to produce complex parts in a fraction of the time that they would take using conventional 3 axis CNC machines.

5-axis CNC machining gives manufacturers the capability to produce complex parts in a fraction of the time that they would take using conventional 3 axis CNC machines.

These rapid cycle times, plus ease of set-up, accuracy, flexibility and the quality of finish that can be achieved make 5 axis machining perfect for sub-contractors and operators working in hi-tech industries such as aerospace and automotive. In fact, many complex parts such as turbines can only be produced on 5 axis milling machines.

5-axis CNC machines are incredibly versatile manufacturing centres that benefit from employing up to five different axes simultaneously: three linear axes and two rotational.

Their capabilities are significantly more diverse than typical 3-axis CNC machines. 5-axis machines can be configured in such a way as to eliminate multiple setups and can thus reduce the need for constant supervision, increasing efficiency and achieving single-setup machining or “Done-In-One”.

Applications for 5-axis milling machines

5-axis milling machines can be used for a range of operations, including drilling, tapping, milling, gear shaping and turning. They are particularly useful when milling complex shapes and surfaces, as well as for parts which require machining on five or six sides.

Our range of high quality, German 5-axis CNC milling machines covers all requirements, from compact units capable of producing small medical parts to incredible tolerances, through to huge travelling column machines with 50m in the X axis.

Backed up by our programming, set-up and installation expertise, a 5-axis milling machine could revolutionise your productivity.
