Success in automating five-axis machining is in large part a factor of the machine tool itself, because the machine tool’s features maintain accuracy and repeatability throughout a long unattended run Machine brings key technologies for product connectivity and edge control on premises, using cloud technologies to provide analytics and digital services. Another major concern for a shop looking to automate its five-axis machines is the materials the machine will be cutting. Materials have a major impact on cutting tools, which in turn have a major impact on any unattended machining plan.
