Our core values and capabilities come together in precision machining solutions that fit the needs of various applications. Read on to explore some of the common applications of multi-axis machining solutions.

Complex 3D Geometries

Multi-axis machining allows for the development of products with some of the most intricate 3D geometries without the need for multiple machines. While machining systems operate on X, Y, and Z axes, multi-axis systems integrate four or more axes to move tools and workpieces. This allows for increased precision while cutting.

Some specific applications requiring multi-axis machining for complex parts and components include:

  • Aerospace Components. Parts requiring intricate designs include landing gear, engine parts, and other complex components with challenging geometries. Multi-axis machining is used to create precise contours, curves, and pockets.
  • Medical Devices. Surgical instruments, joint implants, and numerous other types of medical devices feature complex designs that require multi-axis machining to manufacture.
  • Molds and Dies. Multi-axis machining systems can create complex mold cores and cavities for various forming or casting applications.

High-Precision Machining

High-precision machining can produce highly accurate parts. Circuit boards, antennas, switches, and other electronic components used in telecommunication systems benefit from the quality and precision multi-axis machining offers.

Many auto parts and components have tight tolerances and require the best possible finishes. Automotive manufacturers can utilize multi-axis machining when fabricating fuel injectors, valve bodies, transmission components, and other parts.

Five-Axis Advantages for Specific Applications

Specific applications can benefit from five-axis machining solutions. Some of these applications and their corresponding advantages include:

  • Fluid Dynamics Components. Fluid flow parts like turbines and impellers comprise complex designs with intricate channel systems, requiring machining equipment that can approach the design from multiple angles. 
  • Custom Machining. Multi-axis machining also allows for the development of custom shapes and sizes for one or multiple components, resulting in more efficiency and cost savings compared to traditional machining solutions.
  • Reverse Engineering. These solutions can also more easily recreate the complex geometries of parts with the help of 3D scanning technology.
