Investing in cutting-edge technology is a must for machine shops hoping to remain competitive in the new era of global manufacturing sources. If you invested in a 3-axis machining center earlier, and not a 5-axis machine, you are missing out on the considerable advantages offered through the capabilities of 5-axis machining centers.
The aerospace industry has used 5-axis machining technology for many years but only recently has the tool-making or metalworking industry in general, begun integrating and adopting this technology. The primary advantage of 5-axis machining is the ability to save time by machining complex shapes in a single set-up. Additional benefits come from greater accuracy and allowing the use of shorter, stiffer tools.
Owners of 3-axis machining centers often face multiple set-ups and even then parts must go through several machines to reach the finished stage. These multiple steps increase turn-around time, increase the opportunity for error and can compromise precision. Expand your shop’s opportunity for future work and reduce setup time with 5-axis machining.
You have several choices when implementing a 5-axis machining center solution - for example:
