Whether a part is to be milled simultaneously on multiple sides with the positioned axis or by 5-axis simultaneous milling always depends on the specific machining task, the complexity of the part and machine kinematics.
Are you still wondering whether machines for 5-axis simultaneous machining are even worthwhile for you? Or are you already using multi-axis machines and believe you can get still more out of your machines? Then you are not alone: According to a survey, 62 percent of those with multi-axis machines do not believe they are tapping the full potential of their machines.
We have compared the advantages and disadvantages. Read our white paper.
