5-Axis Benefits


The Benefits of 5-axis machining:

  • Reduced machining time: By using a flat bottom endmill and maintaining perpendicularity to the complex surface you can step-over the full diameter of the cutter thereby dramatically reducing the required number of passes across a surface. The same principle applies to sidemilling of angled surfaces.
  • Better surface finish: Using a flat bottom endmill to maintain perpendicularity to the complex surface can eliminate ribbing caused by ball-nose endmills.
  • Eliminate multiple setups required to re-position the work-piece at complex angles.
  • Eliminate costly tooling and fixtures required to hold the work-piece in place.
  • Eliminate manual millwork and handwork required to cleanup kellered surfaces.
  • Machine complex parts that are not otherwise possible, including holes required to be normal to a complex surface.
  • Fewer competitors: Higher profit margins.

Tri-Tech Precision Products Inc. sells a unique milling head that quickly attaches to virtually any 3-axis machining center allowing the spindle to be positioned at any angle within a hemisphere, instantly converting the machine to a fully programmable 5-axis machining center. Following are several alternatives to achieve 5-axis machining capability.
