5-Axis Milling Technology Overview
Universal milling machines mark the beginning of the leadership of DMG MORI in the world market in the area of 5-axis machining. Whether for the classical 5-sided milling operation or 5-axis machines for the premium class of highly precise simultaneous machining, the availability of a wide series ranging from basic to hightech determines the complete spectrum of an efficient milling technology. Other impressive features include achievable accuracies of below 0.38 µin in space and a variety of workpiece dimensions that can be manufactured – up to 88,185 lb component weight as well as travel paths of up to 19.7 ft.
On the basis of its five series in the field of universal machining centers with pallet changer, DMG MORI provides the ideal path for its customers to make use of automatic 5-sided machining and even challenging 5-axis simultaneous milling. This process not only ensures productive flexibility, but also high cutting performance and maximum precision coupled with high dynamics and excellent accessibility and ergonomics – additional strong arguments. Apart from the geometrical variety resulting from the 5-axis performance, task-optimized spindle alternatives guarantee perfect general conditions in all the areas of application pertaining the CNC milling technology. The range extends from materials that are difficult to cut, e.g. in the aerospace industry, to those which require highest accuracy and surface quality in the area of tool-making and mold making.
