About Our Custom 5-Axis Machining Services

As a leading Tier 1 Supplier to the aerospace industry, 5-axis milling is a vital part of our machining services. Our 5-axis mills enable the custom machining of complex parts that don’t fit on a 3- or 4-axis plane, making it a popular for aerospace applications. Since these parts can be made at a single 5-axis milling machine, the workpiece does not need to move around to different workstations, thus increasing productivity and lessening production time and cost.

What are the 5 axes of machining?

Cutting tools are designed to operate on an axis; how many axes a tool can move on determines what kind of part sizes and shapes it can create. A 5-axis milling machine can move on the X, Y and Z linear axes, as well as the A and B axes. The machine can approach a workpiece from any direction in a single setup, giving a 5-axis machining center endless possibilities.
