Benefits of Multi Axis CNC Machining
At Roberson Machine Company, we specialize in CNC machining, which stands for computer numerical control that simultaneously moves the cutting tool on different axes to form a desired end shape.
In short, more axes means more power. This type of enhanced machining capability provides faster lead time and production turnaround with outstanding quality. It is an economical and efficient solution with substantial benefits, including:
- Cost and time savings
- Increased productivity
- Greater precision and accuracy
- High cutting speeds
- Decreased tool vibration
- High-quality surface finish
- Improved product quality
All industries benefit from the power of more axes. For instance, industries that have a need for simple parts (such as consumer and commercial) may use 3 and 4 axis machining and those that require complicated designs in which precision is a matter of life and death (such as medical and aerospace) can use 5 axis CNC machines.
The capability to produce complicated designs is arguably the single largest benefit of multi-axis CNC machining. Being able to produce parts using various arcs, throughputs, and angles that are not possible to form on regular CNC machines easily creates parts that combine both more complex designs and tighter tolerances. Baltimore, MD industries like the automotive and aerospace sectors contact Roberson Tool for their multi-axis machining needs, as they can be confident that they will receive high-quality parts, made to consistent standards, and made to withstand any condition.

5 Axis CNC Machine in Baltimore, MD
Traditional 3 axis machines move vertical on the Y-axis, sideways on the X-axis, and back-and-forth on the Z-axis; on the other hand, 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). With the spindle head being closer to the workpiece, you can have shorter and tighter cutting tool control with less deflection and vibration. This, in turn, improves surface finishing.
5-axis CNC machines may also operate in what is referred to as “3+2” mode. This is defined as when the two table axes are locked, securing the work piece or cutting tool into a fixed location. 3+2 mode lets parts that would normally be constructed on a 3-axis CNC machine to be produced on equipment that does not require as much loading and unloading, downtime, or special fittings. It also allows parts that have holes or unique features on multiple sides to be produced faster and with more consistency.
By consolidating the machining into one set-up, you can increase production accuracy and throughput while reducing overall waste, costly work fixtures, and cycle time. With so many different directions of work that can be achieved 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.
