5-Axis Machining Center
Hand trimming composite parts takes a lot of time and leaves room for human error. At Upland Fab, we use a 5-axis machining center to trim composite parts efficiently and accurately.
5-Axis Machining Saves Time & Money
5-axis machining is far more cost effective than hand trimming, which can only be done efficiently if you have several people working on a batch of parts at once. The cost of all that labor adds up quickly. 5-axis machining requires just one technician and very little set-up time.
5-Axis Machining of Parts for All Industries
Composite Machined Materials
The complex design geometries along with the honeycomb specific cutters available often require that 5-axis machines are used to cut honeycomb. Upland Fab’s 5-axis capabilities along with our experience in machining composites make us perfectly suited for the complex machining required of honeycomb parts.
Carbon fiber composite machining is unlike any other type of machining. Unique to carbon fiber machining are issues such as delamination, dust control, and a reduction in properties due to exceeding the thermal limits of the material. Upland Fab’s engineers have been machining carbon fiber composites using 5-Axis Machining for over a decade.
