Trace-A-Matic conquers complex part manufacturing with state-of-the-art 5-axis CNC machining, backed by decades of experience and unmatched creativity. The 5-axis platform cuts part geometry and complex shapes unachievable by other machining methods due to additional axes and the exceptional mobility of workpiece to tool rotational axes. This enhanced 6-sided machining capability increases accuracy by combining several standalone operations, significantly reducing part handling and multiple clamping phases during the process. The spindle head operates closer to the workpiece, allowing shorter cutting tools with less vibration and deflection, higher cutting speeds, tighter tool moves, and improved surface finishing capability.
Cost savings is another huge benefit of 5-axis technology. Consolidating 3-axis machining and other linear axes operations into a single setup increases production throughput while reducing cycle time, costly work fixtures, and overall waste. It provides a more efficient and economical solution with faster lead time and production turnaround with outstanding quality than horizontal and vertical machine technology alone.
Whether you seek cost reduction, complex parts machining, parts that require extreme tolerances, or all, Trace-A-Matic is your world-class precision 5-axis machine shop!

DMG Mori and Mazak - Please refer to our Equipment List for specific 5-axis information and capabilities.
A 5-axis machining center has a variable speed tool spindle head with a multidirectional rotary axes orientation. Raw material clamps into an indexing chuck or to a table. The spindle head assembly moves along the travel columns in unison with the chuck or index table to precisely maneuver the workpiece and the cutting tool to achieve the proper tool path required for removing material. 5-axis machines offer single setups, infinite geometry cutting, excellent chip management, longer tool life, repeatable manufacturing, and the speed of simultaneous 5-axis high precision machining. Like standard milling and turning types of machines, this is a subtractive manufacturing process.
