Complex cycles, CNC milling and... 5 Axis machines!

This post illustrates the kind of job we love at Axis Precision Engineering - complicated and testing! Projects requiring complex CNC milling mean our 5 Axis machines, the software that runs them and our engineers are tested, often having to overcome hurdles to get the job done.

It's great!

5 Axis CNC Milling 

The video shows CNC milling of a complex motorsport test wheel using one of the 5 Axis machines in our workshop in Basildon.

In fact, the first operation involved a CNC lathe to produce the basic profile. Obviously, to machine the details, like the deep pockets for the spokes, 5 Axis milling was required.

Using both ball nose and lollipop cutters with complex tube milling cycles the profiles between the spokes were machined. This was fairly complicated... the pockets undercut the spokes, which needed to blend precisely with the previously turned profiles. 

Upon completion of the cycle, the component is sent for quality control inspection. Click through to view more of our videos on YouTube.
