At Axiom we are ever striving to expand our manufacturing capabilities and because of this we are proud to announce we have acquired a new 5 Axis Mazak CNC Machine to add to our arsenal. The capabilities of this machine are world class and provides infinite possibilities for part sizes and shapes we are able to process.
What is 5-Axis Machining?
5-axis machining provides infinite possibilities as to the part sizes and shapes you can effectively process. The term “5-axis” refers to the number of directions in which the cutting tool can move. On a 5-axis machining center, the cutting tool moves across the X, Y and Z linear axes as well as rotates on the A and B axes to approach the workpiece from any direction. In other words, you can process five sides of a part in a single setup.
