Horizontal Machining Centers | Kiwa

Horizontal Machining Centers (HMCs) are milling machines that feature horizontally oriented spindles that rely on rotary cutters to remove metal from a workpiece. The horizontal design of HMC allows a two-pallet work changer to be incorporated into a space efficient machines for fast production.

5-Axis Machining Centers | Kiwa

5-Axis Machining Centers have the ability to move a part or a tool on five different axes at the same time. These machining centers are able to rotate on two additional rotary axes, often identified as A and B, which in turn help the cutting tool approach the part from all directions. These axes are used to smoothly follow a contoured surface, making the 5-axis machine prevalent in the aerospace industry.
