Moving Up to Five-Axis Machining
Upgrading to five-axis machining doesn't have to be an uphill battle. Discover how to take advantage of today’s five-axis technology in a way that makes sense for your job shop. (Sponsored Content)
With so many options for implementing five-axis technology—and in some cases, for the first time—how do you know which is the best buy for your job shop?
If for no other reason than being able to eliminate additional setups or processes, five-axis machining can be justified in a wide range of applications, and at a surprisingly affordable cost. Regardless of the complexity of your part, there are several ways to implement five-axis machining easily and efficiently. For those simply trying to get at all five sides of a part, a 3+2 machine configuration is a great place to start.
The next step up is adding full simultaneous contouring control to an otherwise similar machine configuration…READ MORE.
