5-Axis CNC Machining: Faster Speeds and Higher Precision


One of the ambitious goals of the manufacturing industry is to complete processing in one go: putting a piece of material into a machine tool, running a program, and finally obtaining a perfectly Machined part. It can be said that five-axis machining is more likely to approach the goal of "one-time completion" than any other process. Five-axis machining is the use of CNC to move parts or cutting tools simultaneously in five different axes. It can process very complex parts, which is why five-axis machining is particularly popular in the aerospace field.

The definition of 5-axis CNC machining

china 5 axis cnc machining

5-axis CNC machining is a technology for CNC machining of complex parts using a 5-axis control system on a CNC machine tool. 5-axis CNC machining includes X, Y, Z, A, and C axes, which can be moved simultaneously or partially to make the machine tool capable of moving in any direction, thus achieving the machining of complex parts.

The benefits of 5-axis CNC machining

Five-axis is already a comprehensive processing ability that can achieve one-time clamping, reduce clamping costs, and reduce product scratches and collisions. Five-axis CNC machining is suitable for processing some multi-position holes and planes, high precision parts, especially parts with strict shape machining accuracy requirements. There are many benefits to using 5-axis CNC machining, as follows:

5-Axis CNC Machining: Faster Speeds and Higher Precision

Simple setup

5-axis CNC machine tools make it possible to easily machine complex shapes in one setup. It does not require multiple setups, which can cause errors. Single setup helps reduce setup and manufacturing time and increase productivity. In addition to shortening delivery time, this machining technology also helps improve production and cash flow.

Faster cutting speed

As 5-axis CNC machining allows movement along the X and Y axes simultaneously, you can use shorter and more rigid cutting tools. Using shorter and rigid cutting tools helps to speed up the cutting speed while minimizing or neglecting vibrations.

Improved accuracy

During the 5-axis CNC machining process, the workpiece is stationary and higher part accuracy can be achieved.

Excellent surface finish

The use of shorter cutting tools in the 5-axis CNC machining process helps achieve excellent surface finish, thereby obtaining better part quality.


Ability to machine complex parts

With this machining technology, you can manufacture extremely complex OEM CNC machining parts in a shorter time and at a lower cost. This is a great advantage for small-scale operations or prototypes.
