Using 5-axis high-speed milling and multi-axis turning capabilities, we can manufacture complex components in a single set-up.
Five axis machines create such efficiencies because they have the ability to move a part or a tool on five different axes at the same time. Three axis machining centers move a part in two directions (X and Y) while the tool moves up and down (Z). Five Axis machining centers can rotate on two additional rotary axes (A and B), allowing the cutting tool to approach the part from all directions.
This multi-direction ability allows the tool to smoothly follow a contoured surface, ensuring the most precise and accurate medical component possible, while also reducing production costs, time, and most importantly, potential errors.
