Why 6 Axis Helps You

Many people ask what is 6 axis machining and why is it better. The simple answer is that you get more accuracy and pay less money! With a machine that can get to all 5 sides of part without an operator needed to change it, it will maintain the highest level of accuracy. Metalmite has invested in multiple DMG Mori CTX machines to provide you the very best the market has to offer in accuracy and speed. This makes us your first choice for your needs to be met!  Using the New DMG Mori CTX 6 axis machines we can make parts complete in one process. We are excited to bring this new technology to the forefront and explore faster and better ways to create better products and lower prices! This part was able to be made in a fraction of the time it took previously!
