Five-Axis Machining Center for OEMs, Job Shops

Available from Methods Machine Tools, the Methods-Yasda PX-30i is a five-axis high-precision automated vertical machining center designed to meet OEM and job shop requirements.

Five-Axis

Five-Axis Universal Machining Center

The Doosan FM 200/5AX Linear is a high-speed, high-precision, full five-axis machining center designed for simultaneous five-axis contouring.

Tool Monitoring for Complex Machining

One of the biggest challenges to tool monitoring on a multitasking machine is coping with simultaneous cutting operations. Caron Engineering (Wells, Maine) designed a system to meet this challenge.

Applying “Dengeling” to Finish Turbine Blades

This alternative to grinding, polishing and shot peening enables turbine blades to be machined and finished on one five-axis machine in one setup.

Tool Monitoring for Multitasking Machines

Continuously checking the condition of cutting tools and responding appropriately to wear or other changes is especially critical on machines designed to complete parts in a single setup or run several operation simultaneously.

Five-Axis Machine Offers High Dynamics for Complex Workpieces

The Heckert HEC 800 X5 MT five-axis machining center, available from Starrag, provides productivity, process reliability and precise cutting in a single clamping.

Chasing after Volumetric Accuracy

One of the toughest challenges in five-axis machining of large parts is maintaining accuracy throughout the entire work zone. Grob Systems has developed a method of checking and compensating for possible distortions to a machine’s structure caused by the weight of a massive workpiece when machined in five axes.

Clamping Options for Five-Axis Machining

In five-axis machining, the workholding has to get out of the way. The wrong choice of clamping risks collision and can obscure one of the principal benefits of a five-axis machine.
