    Lean your Machine - Multi Axis Top Tooling

    Clearance and rigidity are the primary considerations when choosing the best vises and fixtures for 5-axis machining.  There must be adequate clearance for the cutting tool and part in their position to the table, providing sufficient space for the Y-axis, the fixture height and size of the part.
    The goal when switching from a 3-axis machine to 5-axis is to reduce handling, tooling changes and cycle time.  It is all about a single set-up, or Done-in-One.  Because there is less handling in 5-axis machining the chance of error is minimized, providing more consistent quality parts.
