Benefits of a 5 Axis Machining Center

December 16, 2010

Demystifying 5-Axis 3 With a 5 axis machining center your ability to produce highly precise, consistently similar parts is greatly enhanced. Operating on the 3 traditional axes (XYZ) with the addition of a rotating axis (C) and tilting (B) provides the foundation for highly intricate machining at your fingertips. Integrating with other machining tools will have many production benefits, such as:

  • Reduce waste: In combination with a CNC you use designs that make the most efficient use of materials
  • Increase Production: Incorporating an auto-feed system will reduce labor costs and increase the number of parts per hour.
  • All-In-One Machining: Instead of several different machining stations, a comprehensive 5 axis machining center can perform all the required cuts affecting the two aforementioned items of reduced waste and increased production.

At Gosiger, we carry a full line of lathes, grinders, and machining centers. We even offer engineering services to determine the best solution your production needs for optimal operation. For more information about our 5 axis machining center solutions, contact us today.
