Description: The advantages of 5-axis machining are can be significant, including both cost and time savings, with a direct impact to a shop’s bottom line. Certain parts with extremely complex shapes require full 5-axis motion in order to machine all required areas of the part, and other parts benefit from 5-axis positioning and can be machined in a single setup with greater accuracy and in less time. Multi-Task machines (MTM) can also make use of 5-axis machining in conjunction with conventional milling and turning operations. This webinar will demonstrate many of the advantages of 5-axis machining including various application examples and how participants can benefit from the use this technology. Primary topics (what the registrant will learn): • Overview of 5-axis machining • Primary types of 5-axis machines • Benefits of 5-axis machining • Various applications for 5-axis machining • 5-axis programming techniques
