3+2 Axis CNC Machining

3+2 axis is another form of 5 axis CNC machining. in which the machine can only move on the 4th and 5th axes (adjusting the angle of the cutting tool) when the cutting tool isn’t moving along the X, Y and Z axes. This form of 5-axis machining is generally slower than simultaneous 5-axis CNC, but creates more rigid parts and longer tool life.

Simultaneous 5-axis CNC Machining

Simultaneous (or continuous) 5-axis CNC machining is an advanced form of 5-axis machining in which the machine can continuously adjust without interruption, enabling movement in five axes. Synchronous 5-axis CNC is very fast because the cutting tool moves without interruption.

What Is the Difference Between 3-Axis and 5-Axis CNC?

Professional Services

The difference between 3-Axis and 5-Axis CNC machining lies in their capabilities and the level of precision they offer. 5-axis CNC machining is considered the pinnacle of computer numerical control technology, revolutionizing the manufacturing landscape. Unlike 3-axis machines that control the machine tool along the X, Y, and Z linear axes, 5-axis machining adds two additional axes of rotation. This advanced technique allows for the creation of uniquely shaped parts with unparalleled precision.

One key advantage of 5-axis CNC machining is its ability to perform complete inspections for size analysis of materials through 5-axis positioning machining. This comprehensive analysis contributes to the production of more accurate components, meeting the highest quality standards.

In contrast to traditional 3-axis and 4-axis machining options, 5-axis machining offers unmatched versatility. By machining a component from three axes simultaneously, complex part production becomes achievable, resulting in improved efficiency and reduced production time.

What is 5-axis CNC Machining

The cutting tool on a 5-axis CNC machining center can move along five axes instead of the usual three. Compared to a 3-axis CNC machine where the spindle can move up and down, side to side, and back and forth, a 5-axis machine has two other axes at work: the table swings from side to side on two different axes, or the spindle itself rotate on an axis. This allows the cutting tool to approach the workpiece from an infinite number of angles, remove excess material, and create parts with highly complex shapes.
5-axis CNC machining reduces the number of setups required: Machinists don’t have to manually flip the workpiece because cutting tools can simply reach more positions. This makes the entire machining process very fast.

Benefits of 5-Axis CNC Machining

By investing in our 5 Axis CNC machining services our customers experience a range of benefits, improving manufacturing output in a measurable way.

  • Increased accuracy and precision: a 5 axis CNC machine operates with greater precision than traditional 3 axis CNC machinery. It allows for a higher level of complexity in potential parts and components.
  • Lower lead times: production speed is important with any project and the arrangement of the cutting tools on a 5 axis CNC machine means that cycle times are much faster, with a greater potential output.
  • Simple setup: a 5 axis machine allows for all pieces you have to be set up at one time, even for complex geometries. This means faster production, with minimised errors and operational costs.
  • Complexity increased: one of the major benefits over a 3 axis machine is that you no longer have to remove workpieces during manufacturing. Instead, complicated angles and geometries can be processes with high efficacy and accuracy.
  • Improved finish:  the material is much closer on a 5 axis machine, meaning a better finish on the surface, even with the most complex of parts. Tighter angles can be reached with the improved drilling process present within this setup.
