The term “five-axis machining” refers to the number of directions in which the cutting tool can move. In a standard 5-axis machine setup, the cutting tool moves across the X, Y and Z linear axes and rotates on the A and B axes. This allows you to process up to five sides of a part in a single setup. That is why 5-axis simultaneous milling and machining has become such a popular choice for creating more complex and intricate parts, or parts featuring multiple sides.

By empowering your engineers to design multifaceted parts that can enhance the functionality and performance of your machines, our 5-axis machining service can help to redefine your company’s overall manufacturing capabilities. 5-axis machining entails the use of computer numeric control to move a workpiece along five different axes simultaneously. This allows a level of high-precision machining of very complex parts that is far beyond what other machining techniques can provide.

Acclaim’s 5-axis CNC machining or five-sided milling capabilities can produce the smooth surface finish that is essential for many manufacturing applications. Despite its utilization of advanced technology, 5-axis CNC machining provides superior results at an extremely affordable price point. This machining process is a preferred choice for applications requiring precise and accurate machining of complex parts.
