Today’s business is about innovation and finding that edge. Are you searching for a way to separate yourself from every other shop doing 3-axis work?
5-AXIS MACHINES ARE NOT JUST FOR 5 AXIS PARTS.
The photo below shows a very simple 3-axis machined component. This workholding allows this 5-axis machine to machine 4 parts using its machine capability and simple software.
If your part requires 45-90 minutes to machine, and the fixture is holding 4 parts, you have acquired 3-6 hours of unattended operation on one 5-axis machining center. In addition, your operator is now available for other projects, or you may have even eliminated expensive labor costs.
If you add 10 pallets to the machine, you obtain another 30-60 hours and have now secured a week or more of unattended operation. Many shops struggle to hire trained and reliable machine shop workers. Using this technique, shops can easily add a 3rd shift and 2 free weekend days to machine your parts without operator interaction.
YOUR RETURN ON INVESTMENT IS SWIFT AND CAN BE ENORMOUS.
