5-Axis Milling 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.
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.

“Hermle machines are inherently very accurate and able to hold this tolerance easily. The spindle in particular has no discernible run-out. Machine construction is very rigid, which not only ensures accuracy but also leads to longer tool life. The cachet of having Hermle equipment on your capacity list is not to be underestimated.”
– George Boyce, Owner
The benefits of 5-axis machining to Boyce Precision are far-reaching. One-third of the time, the two Hermle C 250s are executing programs requiring interpolation of all five CNC axes simultaneously – work which formerly could not have been carried out.
