5 Axis CNC Machining is a subtractive process that cuts away at a block of material using a high-speed cutting tool that resembles a drill. Typical 3 Axis CNC Machines are constrained to linear X, Y and Z axes. However, 5 Axis CNC Machining introduces two additional axes; rotation on the X and Y axes (known as A & B axes). The new axes allow the cutting tool to access more areas of the workpieces at a variety of angles.
5 Axis CNC Machining has opened the possibility for parts to be ‘Done in One’, reducing setup and reorientation costs. With intelligent programming, data paths are trialled and tool paths are perfected in advance of production, achieving efficiency and accuracy.
