Unlike any other milling method, high-quality surfaces are created quickly and efficiently with 5-axis simultaneous machining on modern high-performance machines.
However, many die, mold and machine manufacturers prefer to manufacture using fixed positionable axes. They tend to cast a more critical eye on multi-sided machining. Are these warranted concerns?
In the following article, Tebis Product Manager Helmut Vergin discusses the pros and cons of five-axis simultaneous milling – based in part on a survey of companies in the die and mold manufacturing industry.
The article also includes a link to more information about Tebis and 5-axis milling.
