St. Paul, MN (January 20, 2016) — Matsuura Machinery USA Inc.’s Introduction to 5-Axis Workshop held today at the company’s St. Paul headquarters, proved a huge success, attracting a large number of existing and potential users of Matsuura 5-axis machine tools. 

The Introduction to 5-Axis Workshop was held to exhibit how easy it is to program with the use of software from OPEN MIND hyperMILL and off-the-shelf fixturing solutions from Raptor Workholding Products to machine a part on Matsuura’s extremely accurate machine tools.

“There are numerous myths regarding 5-axis machining. Many people believe that it is difficult to program, problematic to setup and inaccurate. These are massive misconceptions,” said Tyler Bonde, Matsuura Machinery USA Applications Engineer.

The machining industry has made great advancements in CAM software, CNC control software and machine design. During this workshop, customers will learn how to properly program the most commonly used toolpaths in 5-axis machining.

“It is essential for the modern machine shop to gain a competitive edge to compete with the constant threat from overseas manufacturing. These domestic shops must manufacture higher quality parts faster, more accurately, all while providing a lower cost to their customer. Matsuura’s premium machine tools provide the most advanced machining technology available today,” Bonde added.

Customers also toured the 40,000 sq. ft. facility including the expansive showroom and technical demonstration areas, spacious conference and training rooms, the substantial accessories and spare parts storage areas.
