Vertical Machining Centers | Methods

Vertical Machining Centers (VMCs), a machine shop staple, are milling machines that feature vertically oriented spindles that approach workpieces mounted on their table from above and commonly perform 3-Axis machining operations. Milling is a machining process of using rotary cutters to remove metal from a workpiece.

5-Axis Machining Centers | Methods

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.
