Comprehensive 5-Axis CNC Machining Services

Our state-of-the-art machine shop features a broad range of machine tools including several 5-axis machining centers. Five axis machining allows for the spindle and/or work piece to be machined on 5 sides (top, front, back, left & right sides). Additionally, can use five axes to simultaneously cut compound angles and other hard to reach surfaces. 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.
Elimold provides complex systems, equipment, and fabrications for a diverse group of industries. To properly support the growth of our customers, we have a program of continual investment in our facilities and equipment.

On-Demand Production

Accurately manufacturing complex geometric 5 axis parts according to customer requirements without the need for large-scale production, reducing the cost of large-scale manufacturing.

Rapid Prototyping

Rapid prototyping is the cornerstone of design and development. 5 axis machining can play an important role in precision and fast production from multiple angles.

Small Lot Production

It can quickly handle smaller batch production tasks, help manufacturers produce more products in a shorter time, enhance competitiveness, and increase sales.

Advanced 5-Axis Technology Used in Micro Milling Services

At Elimold, we have a team of skilled CNC machinists and EDM micromachining experts who use our state-of-the-art 5-axis micro-milling centers to produce complex components with the highest levels of precision and accuracy. These centers are specially calibrated to deliver the best results, setting us apart from the competition.

We can offer ½ micron (0.00002″) positional and .002° angular accuracies.

One of the major benefits of 5-axis milling is that it allows us to produce parts with a high level of complexity using only one tool setup. This reduces the need for human involvement and ensures that components are machined with repeatable accuracy and shorter turnaround times. With our 5-axis milling capabilities, we are able to deliver superior products and make micro-manufacturing more efficient.

At Elimold, we are committed to providing our clients with the highest level of satisfaction. Whether you have a simple or complex micromachining project, we have the expertise and equipment to deliver the perfect solution. We have helped clients throughout the nation with their CNC machining challenges, including parts that other machine shops were unable to produce to their exact specifications. Trust us with all of your micromachining needs and we will guarantee your satisfaction.

5 Axis machining Services surface treatment

Elimold offers a large number of surface treatments available to improve the surface quality of 5 axis machining service parts. Applying these finishes according to your parts’s usage,we can effectively improve the part’s appearance, surface roughness, hardness, corrosion resistance and more. Below are some of our commonly used surface preparation applications.

Anodizing

Anodizing is an electrochemical process used to enhance the corrosion resistance, appearance, and surface properties of metal parts, particularly aluminum.

Chromate

Chromate, commonly known as a chemical thin film, is a conversion coating used as a corrosion inhibitor on aluminum.

Polishing

The primary goal of polishing is to create a smooth and reflective surface by removing imperfections, scratches, and irregularities.

Powder Coating

Powder coating is a popular and environmentally friendly method of applying a protective and decorative finish to various types of metal and even some non-metal surfaces.

Bead blasting

Bead blasting, also known as abrasive blasting, is a surface preparation technique used to clean, finish, or texture a surface by forcibly propelling small, spherical abrasive materials, called “beads” or “media,” at high speeds onto the surface being treated.

As machining

Machining is a subtractive manufacturing process in which a machine tool, typically a cutting tool, removes material from a workpiece to achieve the desired shape, dimensions, and surface finish.

What Is The Difference Between 3 Axes And 5 Axis CNC Machining?

The biggest difference between the two is the axis number of freedom that the spindle can move in.

3 axis machining can only operate the X-axis, Y-axis, and Z-axis. The workpiece is fixed in position with moving during machining progress, this limits the cutting tool approaches.

5 axis machining, on the other hand, there are two more axes. This machine can rotate around both X-axis and Y-axis, so the workpiece can be turned to any angle. Therefore, this allows a wilder cutting range and can produce more complicated geometry features.

For example, it is difficult to mill the undercut feature with 3 axis machining. However, the 5 axis machining can easily finish this job with a single-step machining mold.

In a word, 5 axis machining can do complex cutting easily which is difficult for 3 axis machining.

At Elimold, we have an experienced team that we know well for both processes. We can help our customers to choose the best option by considering both quality and cost parameters.

Playing a Role in Manufacturing of Medical Devices
