Multi Axis CNC Machining Benefits
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.
In short, more axes results in more power. This type of enhanced machining capability provides faster production turnaround and lead time with exceptional quality. It’s an efficient and economical solution with many different benefits, including:
- Cost and time savings
- Better productivity
- Greater precision and accuracy
- Fast cutting speeds
- Less tool vibration
- Excellent surface finish
- Enhanced product quality
All industries benefit from the power of multi axes. For instance, industries that need to create simple parts (such as consumer and commercial) can use 3 and 4 axis machining and those that require complicated designs in which accuracy is a matter of life and death (such as medical and aerospace) may use 5 axis CNC machines.
The ability to manufacture complicated designs is possibly the single biggest benefit of multi-axis CNC machining. Being able to manufacture parts using many different angles, arcs, and throughputs that are not possible to achieve on older CNC machines easily makes parts that combine both more complex designs and tighter tolerances. Virginia industries including the automotive and aerospace sectors contact Roberson Tool for their multi-axis machining needs, as they can rest assured that they will receive quality parts, made to consistent standards, and made to withstand any condition.

5 Axis CNC Machine in Virginia
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 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, improves surface finishing.
5-axis CNC machines may also be used in what is called “3+2” mode. This means that the two table axes are locked, securing the work piece or cutting tool into a single position. 3+2 mode lets parts that would normally be machined on a 3-axis CNC machine to be made on equipment that does not need as many setup changes, special fixtures, or as much downtime. It also allows parts that have unique features or holes on multiple faces to be manufactured quicker and more reliably.
By consolidating linear axes operations 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 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.
