5-Axis Machining

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. This enhanced 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 set-up 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. Learn more about our 5-axis machining service.

CNC Milling | Vertical and Horizontal

We tackle demanding machining challenges with a wide variety of 3-axis, 4-axis, and 5-axis CNC high precision machines to cut the most hard-to-reach features of complex part geometry. Vertical mills equipped with right-angle head and rotary index table capability transform complex manufacturing processes into a single set-up operation providing faster turnarounds and reduced cost of CNC machined parts. Trace-A-Matic is committed to the continual investment in innovative technology, state-of-the-art equipment, highly experienced machinists, and ongoing industry training.
