Why A 5th Axis?

With this advance technology shops benefit greatly. It simply makes us more efficient, which not only benefits us but our customers.  In some cases we can load a part and take it out complete. This  allows us to hit all critical dimension together. In most cases you will always have a second operation. We typically clamp on the least critical feature so we are machining 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 opening you up to more errors.   We here at S&W are intrigued by technology and strive to delivery Quality over Quantity.  With our 5th axis, it has allowed us  to offer quicker lead times, cheaper pricing, making parts some can't with the best quality you can achieve.  We have a talented group here at S&W and we look forward to helping you with your next project.
