5 Axis Machining expanding the possibilities

5-axis machining provides infinite possibilities for your part sizes and shapes that you can effectively process. The word “5-axis” refers to the number of directions the cutting tool can move. On a 5-axis machining center, the cutting tool moves across the X, Y and Z axes as well as rotates on the A and B axes to machine the workpiece in any direction. This means you can process five sides of a part in a single setup.

5 axis cnc machining


CNC machining (computer numerical control) is a subtractive manufacturing process that removes material from a solid block. It creates highly complex and precision parts. Multiple tools are used during this process by cutting in at least three axes simultaneously. A 5-axis CNC machine can move tools and parts in five different axes at one time. The axes are called the X, Y, and Z axes along with the A and B axes.

5 Axis Mean for Machining Center

What Does 5 Axis Mean for Machining Center?

To ask this question, people should know that in the initial stage of the development of the machining center, it is a multi-axis milling machine, usually three milling machines. When the time passed, we finally had a 5 axis machining center.

5 Axis of Machining

What Are the 5 Axis of Machining?

For the arrangement of the five axes of the machining center, we are talking about the vertical machining center here, and then the whole story can be divided into two parts. The first three axes are the X, Y, and Z axes. They are usually designed and activated and moved on the superstructure of the machining center. They are conventional milling structures.
