5-axis machining provides infinite possibilities as to the part sizes and shapes you can effectively process. The term “5-axis” refers to the number of directions in which the cutting tool can move. On a 5-axis machining center, the cutting tool moves across the X, Y and Z linear axes as well as rotates on the A and B axes to approach the workpiece from any direction. In other words, you can process five sides of a part in a single setup.
FIVE BENEFITS OF FIVE-AXIS CNC MACHINING
Traditional CNC machines move in three linear axes (X, Y, and Z). Five-axis machines move in all three linear axes plus two additional rotary axes. The ability to precisely move the work piece without removing it has distinct advantages over conventional three-axis machining. Here are five benefits of five-axis CNC machining:
1. Complex Shapes
The major (and most well-known) advantage of five-axis machining is ability to machine complex shapes. The additional movement creates machining angles and arcs that were only previously possible with a multitude of special fixtures or additional setups.
2. Fewer Setups
Five-axis machines can machine nearly every visible surface, excluding the bottom or clamping area. This breadth of ability significantly reduces the need for multiple setups or special fixtures. Of course, another big benefit of fewer (or ideally one) setup is…
3. Relational Accuracy
Imprecision finds a way to seep in with every setup change. Once a part comes out of the machine, precise alignment is lost. By using the same “zero” or “home” location, feature-to-feature accuracy is improved.
4. 3+2 Axis Machining
There are parts that can only be machined with simultaneous 5-axis movement. Then there are parts that are more efficiently machined with 3+2 movement.
In 3+2 machining, the fourth and fifth axes are used to locate the work piece (or cutting tool, depending on the type of machine) in a fixed position. In these scenarios, there is no need for all five-axes to move simultaneously.
The same tool paths could have been achieved in a three-axis machine, but only after loading and unloading between multiple setups, fixtures, or machines. The five axis machine increases uptime, decreases human error, and eliminates the need for special fixtures. For parts with features or holes on multiple faces or angles, 3+2 machining is the clear choice.
5. Better Surface Finish
Using the rotating fourth and fifth axes, the part can be orientated to bring it closer to the cutting tool. If the part can get closer to the cutting tool, then the cutting tool can be shorter. A shorter cutting tool is less susceptible to vibration at higher cutting speeds, which directly impacts surface finish.

7. What is 5-Axis?
When someone uses the term “5-axis” they are typically referring to the ability of a CNC machine to move a part or a tool on five different axes at the same time. 3-axis machining centers move a part in two directions (X and Y), and the tool moves up and down (Z). 5-Axis machining centers can rotate on two additional rotary axes (A and B) which help the cutting tool approach the part from all directions.

What is 5-axis CNC Machining?

In the simplest terms, 5-axis machining involves using a CNC to move a part or cutting tool along five different axes simultaneously. This enables the machining of very complex parts, which is why 5-axis is especially popular for aerospace applications.
However, several factors have contributed to the wider adoption of 5-axis machining. These include:
*A push toward single-setup machining (sometimes referred to as “Done-in-One”) to reduce lead time and increase efficiency
*The ability to avoid collision with the tool holder by tilting the cutting tool or the table, which also allows better access to part geometry
*Improved tool life and cycle time as a result of tilting the tool/table to maintain optimum cutting position and constant chip load

Why use 5-Axis Machining?

Trying to decide between 3-axis machining and 5-axis machining is a bit like trying to decide between having a MacDonald’s Quarter Pounder or a T-bone steak; if cost is your only concern, then the former is obviously the way to go.
However, the dilemma becomes much more complicated when comparing 5-axis and 3+2-axis.

Advantages of a 5 Axis Machine

*Improved Surface Finish
Using a flat bottom endmill to maintain perpendicularity to the complex surface can eliminate ribbing caused by ball-nose endmills.
*Complex Geometry
Machine complex parts that are not otherwise possible, including holes required to be normal to a complex surface.
*Reduce Tooling
Eliminate costly tooling and fixtures required to hold the work-piece in place.
*Fully Automated
Eliminate manual millwork and handwork required to cleanup kellered surfaces.
*Reduce Setups
Eliminate multiple setups required to re-position the work-piece at complex angles.
*Increase Profit
Fewer competitors means a larger profit margin.
