Multi Axis CNC | 3, 4, or 5 axis CNC
Multi axis machining services in Missouri. By cutting along a number of different axes, it’s now possible to create complex components that meet exacting specifications with total accuracy— every time. The multi axis CNC machining services at Roberson Machine Company can be used in a variety of applications, industries, and businesses across the country.
Whether you need an initial prototype or a full run of components that are identical from one to the next, we have the capability to consistently meet your production targets on time and on budget. Tell us more about your multi axis CNC machining needs. Please contact us or call 573-646-3996.
Multi Axis CNC Machining Benefits
At Roberson Machine Company, we specialize in CNC machining, which stands for computer numerical control that simultaneously moves cutting tools along different axes to create a desired end shape.
Put simply, more axes means more power. This type of enhanced machining capability provides faster lead time and production turnaround with outstanding quality. It is an efficient and economical solution with many different benefits, including:
- Time and cost savings
- Increased productivity
- Greater accuracy and precision
- High cutting speeds
- Less tool vibration
- Excellent surface finish
- Improved product quality
All industries can benefit from the power of more axes. For example, industries that need to create simple parts (such as consumer and commercial) can use 3 and 4 axis machining and those that require complex designs in which precision and is a matter of life and death (such as medical and aerospace) can use 5 axis CNC machine and beyond.
The ability to manufacture intricate designs is possibly the single biggest benefit of multi-axis CNC machining. Being able to manufacture parts using multiple angles, arcs, and throughputs that are impossible to achieve on more traditional CNC machines easily creates parts that combine both more complex designs and tighter tolerances. Industries like the automotive and aerospace sectors trust Roberson Tool for their multi-axis machining needs, as they can be confident that they will receive quality parts, made to their exact standards, and built to last.

5 Axis CNC Machine
Traditional 3-axis machining moves vertical on the Y-axis, sideways on the X-axis, and back-and-forth on the Z-axis; however with 5 axis machining, you can also get two additional axes on top of these: the table rotation (C-axis) and the tilting table (A-axis). The spindle head is in closer proximity to the workpiece, allowing shorter and tighter cutting tool operation with less deflection and vibration. This, in turn, improves surface finishing.
5-axis CNC machines can also be used in what is known as “3+2” mode. This means that the two table axes are locked, putting the workpiece or cutting tool into a fixed position. 3+2 mode allows parts that would usually be machined on a 3-axis CNC machine to be produced on a machine that does not require as much downtime, special fixtures, loading and unloading, or changing of setups. It also allows parts that have holes or unique features on multiple faces to be machined quicker and more reliably.
By consolidating machining and other linear axes operations into one set-up, you can increase production throughput and accuracy while reducing overall waste, costly work fixtures, and cycle time. With so many different directions of work achievable with 5-axis machines, some may believe that they should only be used for specialty projects. This is not true as they can still be used for everything from highly complicated parts to relatively simple parts. 5-axis machines may even be a preferred choice when manufacturing less complicated parts. Their high speed and ease of use makes it possible for larger production runs to be undertaken while offering significant cost savings.
