Five-Axis Milling

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.

Quality Tools Produce Quality Results

We know equipment is only part of what makes us successful. We foster a culture of continuous improvement and to that end, Continuous Improvement efforts at JPMC are being led by two ASQ certified black belts as of July 2014.
