Most CNC systems are designed to operate in three axes, a traditionally limited operation. Nevertheless, the 3-axis machine remains popular in many applications, even in the modern machining industry. Their CNC 5 Axis Machining Center counterparts are much more complicated and costlier.
However, a wide range of applications can easily be handle with 3-axis machining capabilities. Nevertheless, some complex assemblies and components require 5 Axis Machining Center CNC machining services because their geometries are difficult to machine. Therefore, these advanced production systems can perform two additional rotary axes in addition to machining operations in the X, Y, and Z planes.
A 5 Axis CNC Machining Service Has Many Benefits
Geometries that are difficult to the machine for complex components In addition to the ability to move and position the tooling precisely in two additional rotary axes, 5 Axis CNC Milling Machine CNC machines can produce parts with more complex shapes and geometries without the need to remove or reposition the workpiece.
Reliability and accuracy
It is extremely difficult to reposition everything accurately before the next machining cycle after removing the workpiece or retooling. In addition to ensuring higher precision and repeatability, 5-axis workstations can eliminate the potential for inaccuracies that result from multiple repositioning setups.
Setup operations are simpler
In addition to being capable of machining virtually any surface of a workpiece, five-axis machines are easier to set up and can use simpler fixtures.
