WHAT IS 5-AXIS MILLING
5-axis machining consists of standard milling operations plus the ability to machine on compound angles and contoured surfaces with virtually no geometrical limitations. At ETW, we have always strived to maintain cutting edge technology, and our milling department is a prime example of that practice. We are capable of machining complex and intricate parts quickly and accurately, with the knowledge and level of expertise that 5 axis machining warrants.
Our 5-axis milling department consists of:
Our milling department is the workhorse of our company. It is state-of-the-art, consisting of five 5-axis DMG machines.
Some of the highlights of our milling department:
DMP-60SFD 5-Axis Turn/Mill
The DMP 60SFD is a bar-fed machine, capable of loading up to 3” diameter bar stock through the automatic loader.
Some examples of parts run on this machine include:
DMC-65FD 5-Axis Turn/Mill
This machine is another in the FD series, meaning it has turning and full 5-axis milling capabilities within the same setup.
DMC-60T 5-Axis Mill with SYSTEM 3R Robot
The DMC 60T is a 5-axis monoBLOCK machine with excellent rigidity and a fast, rotary pallet changer.
DMU-100T 5-Axis Mill
The DMU 100T is outfitted for either 3-axis work on table or complete 5-axis work on its fully integrated dividing head (milling between centers).
Parts run on this machine include:
DMC-80U 5-Axis Mill
The DMC 80U is our biggest CNC milling machine. It has a work envelope of 32" x 28" x 28" allowing us to machine a wide variety of parts.
Some of the parts machined on this machine include:
DMG-MORI: DMC-80FD P4
Our newest addition to our 5-axis milling department is another mill/turn machine in the FD series from DMG-Mori. It features an HSK-A100 milling spindle (12,000 rpm) and an 800mm diameter turning spindle (800 rpm). With this machine we are able to mill/turn parts up to 930mm in diameter. This machine also features a pallet-changer and 183-tool magazine which allows for fast setup times between jobs. Additional features include a high-accuracy package and high pressure through-the-spindle coolant. It has a Siemens Sinumerik 840D SL control.
