QCNC is proud to be the owner of the first 5-axis milling machine in Trinidad. This machine has the normal X, Y and Z axes of a conventional mill plus two rotational axes, A and B. All 5 axes can be moved simultaneously while machining to produce complex parts such as impellers, moulds, turbine blades etc.
Production times on parts can be significantly reduced since the 5 axis can be used to orientate the part during machining as opposed to multiple setups on manual machines. This also increases the accuracy by using a single setup as opposed to repositioning the part multiple times.
