KME CNC’s standard five-axis tombstone for horizontal machining centers is equipped with four platters and can be customized to include as many as 12 platters. The tombstone enables machining multiple five-axis workpieces in a single setup, and it uses harmonic drive technology to provide ±5 arcseconds repeatability and limit backlash. Each five-axis platter can be operated independently or simultaneously. Tools can be shared across all the workpieces being held, minimizing tool changes.

    A non-woven porous material with a special coating enables vacuum chucks and tables to hold sheets of metal and other materials more effectively on CNC routing machines. The material, called Vilmill, is used as a substrate between the sheet or plate material to be machined and a suitable vacuum table or vacuum chuck where it is held securely in place by the vacuum.
