What is 5 Axis CNC Machining?

- 2021-11-15-

5 axis CNC machining refers to the process of using computer instructions to control the machine so that the processing cutting tools or parts can move along the five axes at the same time to process various complex parts.

According to the complexity of the geometric shape of the part, the choice of the machine during CNC machining will be different. At Sunbright, we have three-axis, four-axis and five-axis milling machines to meet your needs for parts of different complexity. We have professional engineers who can analyze the process of manufacturing parts and machinery and equipment for you according to the parts you design, and can assist you in optimizing your design. 

Due to 5 axis CNC machining can be positioned and connected in five degrees of freedom, it means that the workpiece can be rotated to any compound angle relative to the cutting tool for machining. In the process of machining parts, 5 axis CNC machining is generally used for machining parts with highly complex 3D shapes.
