Five-axis CNC machining enables contract shops to produce accurate parts and meet customized needs. By reducing the number of repositioning operations, the method decreases the opportunity for errors. McAfee Tool & Die of Ohio uses a 5-axis system with Mastercam CAD/CAM software. Employees received on-site training and follow-up service when complex projects arose. The software’s Verify and Backplot simulation features allow workers to see potential problems prior to running. Plant Manager Joseph Lysiak says 5-axis machining allows the company to stay ahead of the curve.
