5-axis Machining

The most advanced CNC milling machines using the latest solid modeling software.

MI produces projects for many industries, especially the high-tech, precision-dependent worlds of optical equipment, medical devices, satellites, aircraft, and aerospace. 5-axis machining is used in die making, mold making and for producing parts where holes or features are at angles that require multiple setups. A 5-axis milling machine has 2 additional axes of motion. The 2 additional axes are rotary and allow the mill to reach areas not possible with a 3-axis machine.

5-axis machining is a means to speed manufacturing ability and increase repeatable accuracy. The ability of the 5-axis machining process to create complex shapes in a single setup reduces tooling cost and labor time, resulting in much better precision along with lower cost per part and the ability to maintain parts conformity after the first part in future runs.

If there is a need for large machining, prototype machining, replacement of broken parts, creation of assembly line spares or new equipment design, give the 5-axis machining experts at Machinists a call for reliable handling of your project.
