Transitioning to 5-axis machining requires both a time and financial investment. But, like all investments, long-term it will pay off. The faster you begin to make the switch, the faster you will start to see the benefits.
Flexible hone provides fine surface finish for internal bores, along with edge breaking of undercuts and deburring of intersecting drilled holes.
With flexible modern CNC manufacturing equipment, any tooling improvements and innovations that are brought to market can be easily integrated. Avoiding a major retrofit that requires huge capital expenditures and tearing up facilities to install new equipment can save manufacturers large amounts of money and improve their bottom line.
Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: 3DEO, based in Los Angeles, Calif., may have found a method for dropping metal AM costs even further.
Instead of viewing 3D printing as a replacement to the standard process of CNC machining, those who have successfully merged the two technologies view additive manufacturing as a process that can complement their current operations.
