Okuma, Gosiger, 5-axis machining

Everything You Need to Know About 5-Axis Machining but didn’t Know Who to Ask

June 18, 2018

indheader-1The many benefits of 5-axis machining include:

  • Reduced operator time and cost per part by eliminating moving the workpiece from one machine to another
  • Fewer costly fixtures and tools as all operations are completed with one setup
  • Increased spindle availability because a machine tool isn’t idly waiting for a part being processed on another machine
  • Reduced floor space when one 5-axis machine replaces multiple machines
  • Faster production, that enables JIT delivery and reduces work-in-process inventory

While all of these advantages sound great, many CNC shops are unsure if 5-axis machining makes sense for their situations, and what they need to know to make a good business decision. That’s why Gosiger Indiana is presenting an educational seminar on July 25, 2018: 5-Axis Machining Made Simple.

In this one-day event, experts including Okuma Machining Center product Specialist Errol Burrell and Autodesk Powermill CAM Specialist Dan Vandewoestyne will address:

  • How is 5-axis machining changing our business?
  • What do you need to get started?
  • Understanding the differences between 3+2, 4+1 and full 5-axis

The event runs from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm with lunch provided. There will also be live demonstrations on all CNC machines in the facility.
