Five Axis

Divider

Series V (5-Axis): High Precision 3D CNC Routing

  • Depending on requirements, structural design may be Series III with elevated gantry for 5-axis spindle motion, or overhead drive on steel columns
  • Ideal for tight tolerance plastic & composite machining (aerospace, automotive)
  • World-class spindles with tool change capability
  • Best-of-breed fixturing for holding complex parts repeatably
  • Latest Fanuc electronics for simultaneous axis control, fine-tuned to your application
