Benefits of Multi Axis CNC Machining
At Roberson Machine Company, we specialize in CNC machining, which stands for computer numerical control that simultaneously moves cutting tools on different axes to create a custom end shape.
Put simply, more axes results in more power. This type of enhanced machining capability provides faster lead time and production turnaround with outstanding quality. It’s an efficient and economical solution with various benefits, including:
- Time and cost savings
- Better productivity
- Greater accuracy and precision
- Fast cutting speeds
- Decreased tool vibration
- Excellent 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; meanwhile, 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 potentially the single most important benefit of multi-axis CNC machining. Being able to manufacture parts using various angles, arcs, and throughputs that are highly difficult to replicate on regular CNC machines easily creates parts that boast both more complex designs and tighter tolerances. Philadelphia, PA industries including the automotive and aerospace sectors contact Roberson Tool for their multi-axis machining needs, as they can be confident that they will get reliable parts, made to their exact standards, and made to withstand any condition.

5 Axis CNC Machine in Philadelphia, PA
Traditional 3 axis machines move sideways on the X-axis, vertical on the Y-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 tilting table (A-axis) and the table rotation (C-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, enhances surface finishing.
5-axis CNC machines can also be used 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 set location. 3+2 mode lets parts that would usually be constructed on a 3-axis CNC machine to be made on a machine that does not require as many setup changes, special fixtures, or as much downtime. It also allows parts that have holes or unique features on multiple elements to be produced faster and with more consistency.
By consolidating 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, you can perform everything from relatively simple parts to full specialty projects.
