Simultaneous 5 Axis CNC Machining

December 11, 2020 2:37 pm


5 Axis CNC machines are built to allow machinists to achieve a level of precision never seen before. Here are a few examples of how to get the most out of them…

Simultaneous 5 Axis CNC machines move the cutting tool on the X, Y, and Z axes and rotate the A, B, and C axes to maintain continuous contact between the cutting tool and workpiece, unlike 3+2 operations, where the part is in a fixed orientation. This allows machine shops to achieve higher feed rates, maximize their tools’ life by using standard length tools, reduce the amount of human interaction and overall boost their productivity.
