At Runsom, we are experts in true 5-axis contour machining, which enables us to produce 5-axis components that are difficult to make with ease. While superior machining and programming abilities are necessary, true 5-axis work requires more than that. Our remarkable machinists have been working in Runsom for 10+ years, familiar with programming, repairment, and setting up of machines as well as components production.
Runsom may be your best choice for 5-axis machine shops with world-class precision to help you reduce cost, process complex parts, and acquire parts that demand close tolerances, or all!
What Is 5-Axis CNC Machining
5-axis CNC machining is efficient in processing the part size and shapes with unlimited possibilities. The term 5-axis means that the cutting tool can move across five directions, that is, the X, Y, and Z linear axes as well as rotates on the A and B axes.
A 5-axis machining center has a variable speed tool spindle head with a multidirectional rotary axes orientation. The raw material is clamped on the indexing chuck or table. The correct tool path for removing material is realized by the course where the spindle head assembly moves along the travel columns in unison with the chuck or index table to maneuver the workpiece and the cutting tool precisely.

Variable speed spindle holds rotating cutting tool which travels on the Y-axis (front to back) and spins on the B-axis
Machine tools cut material from the workpiece to form a part - subtractive manufacturing
The Z-axis (left to right) and X-axis (top to bottom) columns the rotary spindle head and tooling travel upon
Main chuck holding workpiece which rotates on the C-axis up to 2,500 RPMs and is able to travel on Z-axis
Secondary chuck holding workpiece which revolves on the C-axis up to 2,500 RPMs and is able to move on Z-axis
The interface a machinist uses to program and control how a computer numerical control machine operates
Benefits of 5-Axis CNC Machining
Producing components with higher precision
— components are processed in a single setup without being moved through several workstations;
— additional axes and the splendid mobility of workpiece to tool rotational axes；
Upgrading the whole part quality
— elaborate surface finishes are available.
Lowering cost and labor time
— less part handling and multiple clamping phases;
Boosting cutting speeds and decreasing tool vibrations
— shorter cutting tool can be used;

5-Axis CNC Machining FAQs
The main difference is the fixturing and setup time. 3-axis machines work on 3 axes and 5-axis machines work on 5 axes. By using a 5-axis machine over a 3-axis machine, cycle time is remarkably reduced, decreasing it by more than 1/3rd.
To know more details about 3-axis, 4-axis, and 5-axis CNC milling, you can read our guide on Differences between 3-, 4-, and 5-Axis CNC Machining to help you choose the best suitable one for your machining project.
- Fewer machines involved and reduced part handling, and setups;
- Highly engineered and complex part machining;
- Create complex part geometry in one setup;
- Increased part precision;
- Custom design for manufacture;
