ADVANTAGES OF 5 AXIS MACHINING
By utilising 5 axis CNC machining 5th Dimension Tooling can machine compound holes with much greater accuracy and speed, the 5 axis capability also reduces the need for multiple set-ups and the need for hand finishing to remove excess material left by ball nosed cutters. With the ability to angle the head we can use a shorter cutter and therefore maintain greater accuracy and better surface finish reducing the need for hand finishing.
