The machining has the ability of handling parts that are extremely complex from solids that would have otherwise required casting. The five axis milling can handle a number of raw materials including high temperature alloys like tool steel, brass, stainless steel, titanium, Inconel, copper, tungsten, carbon steel, sterling silver and bronze. It can also accommodate plastics like polycarbonate, PP, acetal, ABS and nylon among others.
The machining saves time when it comes to drilling of holes. Plenty of time is needed to drill a series of holes when using compound angles, but with the machine, it is easy to orient the head along the right axis for every hole automatically. It means, therefore that hole drilling is made a simple affair that can be completed faster using the 5-axis milling or machining.
