Companies around the world are investing at an increasing rate in high end 5 axis machines. However, on the programming side many operators are only running the machines using a positional rotational method. When asked about 5 axis milling, some of the answers are:

  1. 5 axis is too difficult.
  2. The software used does not have good 5 axis strategies.
  3. Lack of machine capability know-how.
  4. Lack of training and limited simulation options to protect this high end machine.

Tebis will dive into the options that are available for utilizing the most out of your 5 axis machine and explain 3+2 axis milling is not 5 axis but a positional 3 axis operation.

Primary Topics:

  • Different Strategies for 5 axis milling
  • Ease of use for 5 axis operation
  • Integrated 5 axis Virtual Simulation to protect the process
  • Planning options for 5 axis operations
