Demystifying 5-Axis 2As 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.

The difference is the 4th and 5th axes. By adding two more points of rotation you can accomplish the same precise cuts in a fraction of the time. Other benefits from 5-axis machining include:

  • Decreased overall production time
  • Easier programming
  • Faster cutting
  • Fewer tool issues

Gosiger provides 5-axis CNC machining centers from the following lathe manufacturers:
