Five-axis and five-sided machining have different workholding requirements for maximizing performance. Big Kaiser recently addressed this issue in one of six educational presentations given as part of its “Breakfast & Learn 2014” event, held during DMG MORI’s Innovation Days. Here you’ll find John Zaya, workholding product manager, discussing different applications for the two processes, the machines on which they are performed, and the best workholding/tooling setups for avoiding chatter and achieving optimal performance. Other presentations included “Deep Hole Boring Solutions,” “Spindle Speeders” and “Managing Tool Data with Presetter Software.”
