Why A 5th Axis?

Utilizing the advanced technology of a 5th Axis allows us to hit all critical dimensions together; this means we can load in, machine, and take a part out complete, avoiding the need for a second operation. We typically clamp on the least critical feature so we machine all critical dimensions together. With a 3 Axis Mill, you would need to move the part two more times in order to make the same part, creating more set-ups and opportunity for errors. At S&W, we strive to leverage technology to deliver quality products in an efficient manner. Our 5th Axis allows us to offer quicker lead times and cheaper pricing while maintaining top quality parts. We have a talented team at S&W and we look forward to helping you with your next project.
