Why choose a 5-Axis CNC Router?
A 5-axis CNC routing machine is ideal for producing complex 3D shapes using cutting, engraving, trimming, drilling and other techniques. CNC routers combine many traditional machine shop tools and techniques in one package, and on a 5-axis router, the tool head can approach the piece from any direction, as it moves and twists through 3 linear axes and 2 rotational axes. With automatically changing tool heads, the 5-axis router can do many jobs in a single go that would require an entire workshop of highly skilled operators to complete on conventional machines.
The benefits of a 5 Axis CNC Router
Understandably 5-axis CNC routers are more expensive than 3-axis and 3+2-axis CNC machines, they are bigger and more complex. So, it is important to understand the benefits to know if it is the right purchasing choice for your business.
You can create more complex shapes with ease and because you are working on 5 axes you don’t have to remove the part, reposition it and reconfigure your tools as you would with a 3-axis CNC router.
