5-Axis Synchronous CNC Milling in Rochester

What is 5-axis “synchronous” CNC milling vs. the industry standard 5-axis (i.e. 3 + 2) “positional” milling, and how and why is it so valuable to you?

5-Axis machining at Metalmite Detroit

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I wish there were some way to chuck-up that big chunk of raw steel and just machine it completely into the finished part”? Well, now there is, with true 5-axis synchronous CNC machining from Metalmite Corporation — located in Rochester, Michigan, just outside of Detroit. The advantages are prolific, namely increased VALUE and reduced cost. Machining on our new Mori Seiki NMV 5000 DCG helps reduce, and in some cases even eliminate, most NON-Value added activities. Such as, the total number of setups needed is reduced, the number of separate operations is reduced, fixtures and fixturing is reduced and the need for secondary (off-line) work is reduced. To our customers the bottom-line is, your parts faster, better, cheaper.

So why do you need full 5 axis machining from Metalmite? To help increase your market-share, increase your sales and increase your profits. In addition, you get the added benefit of decreasing costs, as well as, product development time so that you can get your product to market faster than your competition. As one customer recently said, “We never thought it possible to get “Near Production” parts right from the Rapid Prototyping phase. This dramatically helped us reduce our product development time and cost. Both us, and our customer, were ecstatic about this ability to move so quickly, and precisely, from product design to an actual physical part that we could test AND show our customer.”

At Metalmite, we want you to know – we have your back. With us, Win-Win is not just a good policy, it is the ONLY policy.
