5 Axis Module

4D/5D continuous axes milling is used with higher end machines that allow the machining in more axes than 3D.  In 5D, the machines design can be different but the principle of the 5-axis machining remains the same: the positional relationship between the part and tool is describes by three linear and two angular dimensions.  Continuous 4th axis milling is enabled in this configuration. Operations included in 2D/2.5D/3D are also included in addition to the ones listed below.


Operations Included:

  • 5D Contour
  • 5D Surfacing
  • Roughing Rotary Machining
  • Finishing Rotary Machining
  • Hole Machining
