Micro drilling in steel using Datron high speed CNC machining center for micro hole drilling with small repeatable holes

5 Axis CNC Machining / Milling


While 5-Axis Machining is mandatory for some complex 3D parts, it can also be employed for multi-sided parts as a means of saving time and money. 5 axis machining can eliminate multiple set ups for the machining of multi-sided parts – thereby improving efficiency and reducing cycle time. 5 axis machining can also improve quality of since the part stays in the fixture from start to finish which eliminates alignment issues associated with multiple set ups. When prototyping or manufacturing in short runs, 5 axis machining can be quicker and more cost effective than casting. For micro drilling many hole at different angles 5 axis machining is the preferred method.

5 Axis Machining Centers:
The M8Cube has a 40” x 32” x 9” work area with ample room for various workholding setups like pneumatic clamps, vacuum tables and even a trunnion-style 5-axis system. Precision-ground ball screws, linear guides and brushless direct drives provide superior accuracy in all axes. Optional XYZ probing recognizes irregular surfaces and compensate for them dynamically.

The M10 Pro is our fasted most accurate machine with linear scales high position accuracy across the entire work envelope (ISO 230). With a 41" x 35" travel the M10 is capable of rapid rates up to 30 meters per minute. When the shortest cycle times or mirror finish surfaces are required, the M10 is the way to go. Plus, the liquid-chilled, 40,000 RPM spindle is exceptionally suited to rapid, high-volume material removal. The solid granite table adds rigidity for precision milling.

Now, if your workpiece fits roughly within 100mm x 100mm, the C5 could be the ideal 5 axis mill for you. This compact 5 axis CNC milling machine delivers extreme accuracy and it fits through a standard 36" door!
