5-Axis CNC Machining
In the early '90's, many rapid prototyping and manufacturing companies were wondering why they should switch from manual mills to CNC. The scenario for investing in 5-axis machining technology is similar. Those who didn’t switch to CNC eventually got left behind. With any business, investing in the latest technology is a requirement to stay on top and compete effectively. Clinkenbeard is committed to being the first choice for all customer needs by investing in all the latest technologies.
With six 5-axis vertical milling centers (and a number of 2- and 3-axis CNC machines), Clinkenbeard can manufacture the most complex parts and components precisely, and accurately.
The Benefits of 5-axis machining:
- Reduced machining time
- Better surface finish
- Eliminate multiple setups required to re-position the work-piece at complex angles.
- Eliminate costly tooling and fixtures required to hold the work-piece in place.
- Eliminate manual millwork and handwork required to cleanup kellered surfaces.
- Machine complex parts that are not otherwise possible, including holes required to be normal to a complex surface.
