What is 5-Axis?

When someone uses the term “5-axis” they are typically referring to the ability of a CNC machine to move a part or a tool on five different axes at the same time. 3-axis machining centers move a part in two directions (X and Y), and the tool moves up and down (Z). 5-Axis machining centers can rotate on two additional rotary axes (A and B) which help the cutting tool approach the part from all directions.

Often, there seems to be confusion due to the term “5-axis” machining center. Shops think they don’t have 5-axis work. Every shop has work that would benefit from a 5-axis machine because a 5-axis machining center facilitates 5-sided machining.
