5-Axis Return on Investment Worksheet

Posted by Mike Cope on Fri, Jan 25, 2013

If the past few years have taught us anything, it's that the addition of 5-axis technology - even in shops that only run "3-axis" work - can positively impact a company’s bottom line. On average, shops who take advantage of this technology have seen improvements of 20% to 30% in efficiency. Imagine…what would a twenty to thirty percent reduction in cycle time and setup time - on a part that you are already running in your shop - mean to you?

The secret is in the optimization of the entire process. In addition to the obvious savings, of performing only one single setup on the machine, all of the rapid moves, part orientations, and tool changes have also been optimized. In most cases, the result is a noticeable decrease in both setup time, AND cycle time…that translates to a positive impact on profits!
