As a leading distributor of 5-axis CNC machining centers in North America, Gosiger would be amiss to not mention these production-increasing machines. If your machining shop already has a 5-axis CNC machining center, you have already been experiencing the range of benefits that come with it. However, if you’ve never witnessed the advantages of owning a 5-axis CNC machining center benefit firsthand, there’s no better time than now.
Traditional 3-axis CNC machines require more work than is necessary with the technology available today. The 3-axis approach requires multiple setups for machining complex parts – adding time and costing money.

Decreased overall production time
Fewer tool issues
