5-Axis Milling

What is 5-Axis Milling?

A 5-axis machining centre allows the cutting tool to move across the X, Y and Z linear axis as well as rotating on the A and B axis to approach the work piece from any direction. This reduces set up and loading times, and allows for a more efficient, and cost-effective, machining strategy. With the combination of 5-axis machinery and state of the art MasterCAM CAD/CAM software, we are able to carry out simultaneous 5th axis machining, allowing us to manufacture extremely complex parts.

Precision 2000 have also invested in state-of-the-art 5 Axis milling technology. 5 Axis machinery helps to significantly reduce set up and cycle times, and supported by investment in CADCAM software enables us to carry out simultaneous 5 axis milling operations. This allows us to manufacture of complex components with challenging geometries’ and tight tolerances.
