CAMWorks Multi Axis Milling
Multi-Axis Milling

CAMWorks Multi-Axis Milling software provides a wide variety of uses and applications for those who need flexibility in their software and machine tools. Start creating complex tool paths such as turbine blades, impellers, camshafts, extrusion screws, and blades seamlessly.

By using shorter cutting tools, optimizing the angle between the tool and the surface, and machining in a single setup with simultaneous control of the rotary axis, CAMWorks Multi-Axis Milling reduces cycle time, improves surface finish, and extends tool life.


    Multiple Multi-Axis modules for your requirements:*

    • 3 Axis Mill with undercutting - For 3 axis machining requiring undercutting.
    • 4 Axis Mill - For up to 4 axis simultaneous machining
    • 5 Axis Mill - For up to 5 axis simultaneous machining

    *All Multiaxis modules include 2.5 Axis Mill and 3 Axis Mill.

    Machine Complex Parts

    CAMWorks 4/5 Axis simultaneous machining programming software allows the user to create toolpaths across complex shapes that could not be machined on 3 Axis machines. This includes high-performance automotive port finishing, impellers, turbine blades, cutting tools, 5 Axis trimming, and undercut machining in mold and die making. CAMWorks 4 Axis simultaneous machining is designed for complex rotary applications such as camshafts, extrusion screws and blades.

    Reduce Cycle Time - Improve Surface Finish - Extend Tool Life

    • Shorter cutting tools can be used since the tool can be tilted to adjust the angle between the cutter and the part. The increased rigidity of shorter tools allows you to take advantage of the high-speed options in CAMWorks to machine at higher speeds with no loss in accuracy. The result is better surface quality and reduced finishing time.
    • Generating 5 Axis swarf toolpaths instead of traditional 3 Axis toolpaths can result in fewer cut passes and improved surface finish.
    • By optimizing the angle between the tool and the surface, it is possible to achieve a constant chip load and a high feedrate at the contact point. The result is improved surface finish and extended tool life.
    • Parts that previously required multiple setups can be machined in a single setup with simultaneous control of the rotary axis. In addition to saving time, this also cuts down on mistakes that might be made during multiple setups.
