5 and 4 Axis Machining

Product highly complex parts using 5 Axis Machining.

This machining method attacks the workpiece from all directions, allowing almost any part to be machined with extreme precision. 

Some of the benefits of 5 axis machining include: 

  • The ability to produce complex shapes that would otherwise require multiple setups.

  • The ability to produce geometry that is not possible using conventional methods with a 3 axis mill.

  • Hole drilling at different angles.

  • Improved surface finish

  • Improved accuracy 

If you have a job that needs 5 axis or 4 axis milling, please contact one of our experienced engineers for a free quote.

Integrated Computer Aided Design

We work with industry recognised CAD/CAM software to bring your designs to life.

What is 5 Axis Machining

Also known as full or simultaneous machining, this milling method will attack the workpiece from all directions allowing for highly complex parts to be made with extreme precision.
​​
5 Axis CNC machining involves a combination of three linear axes, running on X, Y & Z coordinates, and two rotary axes running on B and C coordinates. 

5 Axis CNC machines still use G-code to carry out operations. Instead of using just simple X, Y, Z cartesian coordinates, the G-code file compiled by our engineers includes information for rotational axes B and C, which operate around Y and Z linear axes, respectively.
