Maximum Mold Group displays the benefits to having a large capacity five-axis CNC. By using the five-axis technology versus conventional three-axis machining, fewer setups are required to create a part with complex geometry. Five-axis machining eliminates the need and the cost of creating the fixtures because the part can be held once and rotated so that the geometry is created. Five-axis machining also enables the cutting tool to remain tangential to the cutting surface. Lower cycle times and costs are achieved because more material can be removed with each pass of the tool. Better surface finishes result by using the five-axis capabilities on contoured geometry.
