5-Axis Machining Shop Services

With the capacity to machine complex geometries and high repeatability, 5-axis CNC milling has become the standard machining option where high performance and complex components are required. With the capability to move all five axes simultaneously, 5-axis milling is well-suited for parts that cannot be made with any other milling machine.

As an ASD9100-certified manufacturer, Miller CNC creates performance-built components using various hard metals for superior results. We use advanced 5-axis milling to create complex parts for a variety of industries. We work directly with you to plan, engineer, develop, and inspect all CNC-machined components to provide you with precisely what you need.

5-Axis Milling vs 3-Axis Milling

5-axis milling is an advanced form of machining for fabricating custom parts. Derived from 3-axis CNC machining, 5-axis milling creates highly complex components at high-speed rates. 3-axis milling uses three main axes (X, Y, and Z) to manufacture simple parts, sharpen edges, or drill holes. 5-axis milling includes two additional axes, each with independent rotational capabilities. This independence allows all five axes to move simultaneously, supporting multidimensional processing and complicated rotational movements.

Miller CNC’s 5-axis CAM software with machine simulation allows all component features to be machined without physically handling the part in one setup. This allows for more accuracy than any other milling machine can provide. 5-axis milling offers an unmatched level of precision, machining components that comply with strict industry standards and requirements. Full automation capabilities allow for reduced set-up times and optimized cycle stages, resulting in enhanced efficiency, lower production times, and reduced costs.

5-Axis Milling FAQs

What is 5-axis CNC machining?

5-axis CNC machining utilizes five independent axes rotating simultaneously to create highly complex geometries. This allows five sides of a part to be machined from a single fixture setup. 5-axis machining is the most advanced form of CNC machining and is best for complex parts that other machines cannot replicate. As an experienced 5-axis CNC machine shop, Miller CNC uses 5-axis milling equipment to fabricate high-precision components in one setup.

What is the advantage of a 5-axis CNC machine?

Operating all five axes simultaneously sets 5-axis CNC machining apart from other CNC milling services. All features of a component are machined in a single setup, reducing handling and improving production rates. 5-axis machining is the go-to method for fabricating high-quality components quickly and precisely.
