5 Axis Vertical Machining Center
What is a 5 Axis Vertical Machining Center?
VMC 5 axis machine, as the name implies, is the ability of a CNC machine to move a part or cutting tool along 5 different CNC axes simultaneously. The first 3 movements are the standard X, Y, and Z, and the additional 2 axes are the A and B which rotates around the workpiece from any direction. 5-axis machining center are able to machine extremely complex parts and provide infinite possibilities of shapes and sizes. 5 axis machining centers are popular within the aerospace industry due to the industry’s demands on precise and complex parts that are required to be produced.
