The Latest in Five-Axis Machining is Getting Easier to Implement
Five-axis machining technology has grown increasingly capable over the years, but there are still perceptions that lead some moldmaking shops to think it’s out of reach.
Five-axis machining technology has grown increasingly capable over the years, but there still have been drawbacks that made some shops think it was out of their reach.
That’s changing rapidly with advancements in machine tool technology, as well as with enabling technologies such as cutting tools and CAD/CAM software. These enhanced CAM features substantially reduce the time it takes to go from a CAD file to a proven five-axis part program.
When lead time is critical, such as die/mold work, that’s a huge competitive advantage…READ MORE.
