What is 5-axis CNC Machining ?

5-axis CNC machining can produce parts with complex geometries and increase productivity by reducing the number of machine setups. It allows the rotation of the machine bed or the tool head (or both) and the three linear axes of movements. It is extremely suitable for deeper parts made from harder materials, and it guarantees a high degree of precision due to using shorter machining tools. The machining speed is also faster, while tool vibration is reduced.

How Does 5-axis CNC Machining Work ?

  1. ● The cutting tool move along three linear axis and two rotational axes relative to the work piece.
  2. ● All five axis move simultaneously during all machining operations.

More Than 17-year CNC Machining Experience

With over 17-year experience in high-mix low-volume field, RPWORLD is one of the world's fastest CNC machining source for machined prototypes and production parts.

Suitable for Challengeable and Complex Structures

5-axis machining uses a tool which moves in 5 different directions corresponding to the 3 linear X, Y and Z axes, to which are added two axes, A and B, around which the tool rotates. With such a configuration, the part can be approached from all directions and can be worked from five sides in a single operation.

High Quality & Consistent Stability

High-precision and high-efficiency full-automatic robot arms can work 24h*7 days, which enable us to consistently ensure good precision and good efficiency in the course of our customers' product manufacturing.
