Benefits of Multi Axis CNC Machining
At Roberson Machine Company, we have been specializing in CNC machining for more than two decades. This stands for computer numerical control that simultaneously moves the cutting tool on different axes to build a desired end shape.
Put simply, more axes results in more power. This type of enhanced machining capability allows for faster production turnaround and lead time with excellent results. It is an efficient and economical solution with substantial benefits, such as:
- Time and cost savings
- Increased productivity
- Greater accuracy and precision
- High cutting speeds
- Less tool vibration
- High-quality surface finish
- Improved product quality
All industries benefit from the power of multi 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 complex 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 largest benefit of multi-axis CNC machining. Being able to produce parts using multiple throughputs, angles, and arcs that are impossible to replicate on older CNC machines easily creates parts that contain both more complex designs and tighter tolerances. St. Petersburg, FL industries including the automotive and aerospace sectors contact Roberson Tool for their multi-axis machining needs, as they can be sure that they will receive reliable parts, made to tight tolerances, and made to withstand any condition.

5 Axis CNC Machine in St. Petersburg, FL
Traditional 3 axis machining moves 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 as well as these: the table rotation (C-axis) and the tilting table (A-axis). The spindle head is in closer proximity to the workpiece, allowing for shorter and tighter cutting tool operation 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 non-functional, putting the work piece or cutting tool into a set position. 3+2 mode lets parts that would under normal circumstances be built on a 3-axis CNC machine to be made on a machine that does not need as much loading and unloading, downtime, or special fittings. It also allows parts that have holes or unique features on multiple faces to be machined consistently and rapidly.
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 that can be achieved with 5-axis machines, you can perform everything from relatively simple parts to full specialty projects.
