Tooling Materials & Composites » 5 Axis CNC Machining

Manuplas have a 5 axis CNC machining facility which provides the ultimate in quality and design accuracy in mould finish for our range of products.

Manuplas is currently able to offer 5 axis CNC machining, with a maximum billet size of 3m x 1.5m x 0.7m high.

Manuplas are also happy to complete CNC machining for customers who use this process as part of their own production process but do not have either the time or equipment to do it in house.

The advantages of 5 axis CNC machining over 3 axis CNC machining:

  • The capability to machine complex shapes in a single set up.  This reduces time, cost and user error.
  • Shorter cutting tools can be used resulting in higher cutting speed and reduced tool vibration.
  • The ability to machine complex parts from solid material that would otherwise have to be cast.
  • Significant time savings in hole drilling.
  • Ease of programming machining operations for angular surfaces.
