5 Axis CNC Machining

 

The process of 5 axis machining uses Computer Numerical Control (CNC) to move up to 5 different axis simultaneously, enabling the most complex work pieces to be machined with ultra precision and increased accuracy. Our 5 axis Mazak machining centres can provide infinite possibilities, greater precision and accuracy on highly complex parts with reduced set up times and improved productivity with multi pallet set ups.

 

With the ability to work to and maintain tolerances of .002µm in all materials, our 5-axis capacity allows us to machine parts up to 500mm Dia, with 120 tool carousels and utilising our multi pallet systems we can reduce lead times and still maintain high precision repeatability.

3 & 4 Axis Machining

 

For parts not requiring 5 axis machining, we have a range of 3 and 4 axis CNC machining centres which can maintain close tolerance work of up to .002ums in all materials with the capability of using pallet loading systems or machine beds up to 1660mm x 550mm long. These machines have 4th axis capability and 30 tool carousels increasing the versatility and production on the machine. They can carry out complex and precise parts with increased production using the pallet systems.

16 off CNC Horizontal & Vertical Machining Centres

Ranging from those capable of machining components as large as 1660mm x 510mm x 510mm and others sensitive and fast enough to machine the most delicate components. Most machines are of a Twin Pallet configuration with up to 80 station tooling carousels. Rotary and 5 Axis are also available on both the larger and smaller machines offering total flexibility on both round and prismatic parts.

This machine is a manual tool-change configuration making it ideal for smaller batch sizes, tooling and development work. 

Mazak 5 axis i500 6 pallet Palletech system

Our Mazak 5 axis i500 6 pallet Palletech system maximises the output of the machine shop by running similar parts together with very little downtime of the machine spindle and lights out operations. The system brings advanced, pre-engineered automation to today’s machining environment. The Mazak Smooth software coupled with the Palletech Manufacturing Cell (PMC) controller can monitor operations, view and change schedules instantly and still have the

versatility to keep production moving to achieve customer demand.

4 off CNC Turning Centres

The largest of these machines being capable of turning 450mm diameter x 1500mm long, whilst the Bar Feed machines have magazine loading and are able to turn the most complex components to within five microns.

Air conditioned finishing and assembly area, with downdraft bench and Ultrasonic cleaning facilities.
