Five-axis CNC milling

This type of manufacturing process involves using a machine tool to make customized parts or products. The abbreviation “CNC” stands for “Computer Numerical Control”. It means a device to control the cutting tools to create the shape you want along a predetermined path.

Features of five-axis milling machines

These devices are highly accurate due to the ability to move the tool in five different directions simultaneously. This allows you to create products with a high degree of repeatability. Units with five-axis control systems are capable of machining parts with the most complex shapes and surfaces, including convexities, depressions and transitions between different surfaces.

Milling machines perform multiple operations in a single pass with the ability to move tools in multiple directions simultaneously, reducing time and increasing overall productivity. Flexibility and customizability in the production of both serial and individual workpieces maximizes the satisfaction of all customer needs. This ensures that the end product meets the specified requirements.

The management of production data, including machining parameters and results, enables subsequent process optimization and productivity improvements through the analysis and use of lessons learned.
These features make five-axis metal machining the ideal choice for manufacturers who need to create complex parts with high accuracy and efficiency. They reduce production time and costs and increase the competitiveness of the company.

Features and benefits of five-axis milling applications

This advanced technology in manufacturing has a number of pluses over more traditional milling methods. Here are some of them:

  1. Increased flexibility allows you to work on parts with complex shapes and contours.
  2. By finishing multiple sides of the workpiece simultaneously, production time is significantly reduced for short lead times.
  3. Fewer changeovers increase overall productivity.
  4. Improved part surface quality by adjusting feed angles.
  5. Reduced manual finishing costs.
  6. Increased competitiveness.

Selton’s plant in Kiev, Ukraine, offers five-axis machining services that provide high precision, flexibility and productivity. By utilizing this technology, the company can improve the quality of its products and reduce costs.

Five-axis machining of complex parts

Let’s look at the main aspects of this process in more detail:

  1. Enables high-speed movement of the cutting tool along five independent axes: X, Y, Z, and two additional axes, commonly referred to as A and B.
  2. Metalworking of difficult geometries.
  3. Optimization of time and materials.
  4. Expanded design possibilities.
  5. Improved aesthetics.

The cost depends on the material and the skill level and experience of the contractor. Machining quality and professionalism can also affect the price of a five-axis CNC metal machining service, so it’s best to contact suppliers directly with a specific request to get an accurate estimate for a specific project.
