5 axis CNC machines are the pinnacle of milling machine sophistication. They are the most expensive cnc machines to purchase, and due to the complex motions involved, even more skills and extra costs are involved to utilize the most sophisticated 5 axis CAM software available. The term “5-axis” refers to the number of directions in which the cutting tool can move.
The process, relies on the fourth and fifth axes to orient the cutting tool in a fixed position rather than manipulate it continuously during the machining process.

5-SIDED MACHINING is:
1. Reduced setup time - increasing machining productivity
2. Increased accuracy and ability to achieve outstanding surface finishes—improving overall part quality
3. Expanded cnc maschine shop capability for future work
4. Work pieces are not moved through several workstations, they can be completed on the 5 Axis cnc machine alone
5. Improved tool life and cycle time as a result of tilting the tool/table to maintain optimum cutting position and constant chip load
6. Shorter and more rigid tools may be used.
7. Higher spindle/cutting tool speeds may be achieved while reducing the load on the cutting tool.
We cut all materials like aluminum 6061 and plastics and more difficult to machine materials like stainless steels, copper, Titanium, Kovar, Invar, Hastelloy, Molybdenum, Tungsten and other exotic metals with extreme precision using CAD/CAM software as well as other newest cnc machine industry tools and 5-axis equipment. Our cnc machine shop's challenge is to produce the most difficult to make prototypes.
It takes more than just excellent machining and programming skills to preform true 5 axis work.
5 axis machining: For ultimate precision cutting of intricate angles AC Manufacturing uses 5 axis CNC machines such as Haas UMC 750 that allow limitless possibilities to cut nearly anything our clients can imagine. Cutting both sides simultaneously using 5 axis, we take advantage of latest innovative technology to create the best results with the most precise exacting tolerances.
AC Manufacturing is a cnc machine shop offering an experienced team of machinists capable of performing ultra-precision cnc jobs using a wide array the latest technology software as well as 5 axis machines for every type of precision machining job. From set up to completion, our commercial quality CNC machining tools are capable of producing high-quality work in the shortest amount of time.
5 Axis machining is gaining in popularity in cnc shops as a means to reduce setups and increase accuracy for
multi-sided and complex parts. The case of Haas UMC-750 is an example of universal machining center and a cost-effective solution for
3+2 machining and simultaneous 5-axis machining.
5-axis cnc machining provides infinite possibilities as to the part sizes and shapes you can effectively manufacture. 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 work piece from any direction. In other words, you can process five sides of a part in a single setup.
This diagram illustrates the 5 axes available on the UMC-750.
X Axis 30" 762 mm
Y Axis 20" 508 mm
Z Axis 20" 508 mm
C-Axis Rotation 360° Rotation
B-Axis Tilt -35° to +110°

Understanding the capabilities of the control on a 5-axis machining center is critical to maximizing the benefits of 5-sided machining. There are only a handful of controls that give you the ability to program a part for 5-sided machining without a CAM system—and even fewer that make the transition easy with the use of software features embedded in the control.
