Multi-Surface Machining Improves Efficiency and Productivity
ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, July 20, 2021 -
Shibaura Machine is making it simple to adopt a 5 (face) sided and/or 5-axis positioning machining strategy with our double column/bridge machines.
Switching to 5-Sided or 5-Axis Machining
While traditional vertical 3-axis machine approach a workpiece in three directions (X, Y and Z). Shibaura Machine offers two additional approaches to increasing performance.
A 5-sided machining strategy utilizing a 1 degree indexing machine attachment machining strategy will improve machine tool production and the accuracy of the workpiece by machining multiple angle surfaces in one setup.
A 5-axis machining strategy utilizes a 1 degree indexing machine attachment with 2 additional rotary axes which allow a vector cutting tool approach to reduce or eliminate complex workpiece fixturing.
Moving Forward Together
Shibaura Machine is committed to helping our customers remain competitive in their industry. Adopting a 5-sided or 5-axis process is one of the most efficient ways to increase operating margins on existing workpieces, secure additional work and improve productivity. Our team has dedicated resources to this advanced technology over the years and is excited to offer this capability on the newly designed Shibaura Machine model MPJ-M series double column machine.
