Do you have a molding project that requires the use of delicate materials like wood, dainty metal or thin plastic? If so, you want to have a delicate machine to cut, trim and shape them to create your ideal mold. For this type of production, a 5 axis CNC routing is ideal.
What is 5 Axis Routing?
5 axis CNC routing is done with a routing machine. With this type of routing machine, an expert is able to make a prototype, finish the construction of certain parts, and even make tools for other machines.
A 5 axis CNC routing machine uses a movable bed which allows the tool head and the stock to change position easily.
Traditionally, routing machines were used to help hollow out wood and plastic items. However, today, the modern CNC routing machines use computer technology which helps to create more complex and precise cut thus eliminating the need to do any hand finishing. This is perfect for making a mold for a particular project you may have in mind.
Other Benefits of 5 Axis CNC Routing
CNC parts can be made from scratch, or can be used to finish cast and molded parts, making cuts that are impossible with those manufacturing methods. Here are some other benefits of using a CNC Routing machine:
- Requires fewer setups to complete a complex design.
- Reduces vibrations and increases cutting speeds due to the added range of motion.
- Eliminates the need to work on multiple machines since the CNC the part to stay in the same position relative to the tool during the cutting process.
Altogether, the result of using a 5 axis CNC Router is much faster, lower costs, provides a better finish and higher accuracy.
5 Axis Routing in Dallas
At Cary Products, we are a full-service production facility that offers CNC service in Dallas, Texas. We have a 5 axis CNC routing machine that has a large 5 foot by 10-foot table. So, if it can fit in our space, we can build it!
We also offer plastics manufacturing, too. If needed, we can build the molds needed for injection molding and thermoforming in-house as well. This means you will have a quick turnaround time and less downtime during production.
