5 Axis Machining
Over the years, we have invested in some of the biggest names and best machines on the market. These machines are Japanese made Mazak Integrex, full 5 Axis Simultaneous capable and with state of the art controls and tooling systems. They have partnered with accurate and powerful CAD/CAM software solutions for consistent and reliable part programming. Most of the components produced on these machines are completed in one single operation, thus enabling better control of dimensional tolerances and faster turn around from initial order placement to delivery to the customer. Lights out operations with full in-cycle measurement capabilities, enable continuous production of very complex precision components in medium to high volume batches. On most components, 24 hours a day, seven days a week production demands are easily achievable.
CNC Milling & CNC Turning
Here at A&B Engineering CNC Milling is very much a big part of our company. We use a varied range of machines with capabilities of 3, 4 and 5 axis machining, allowing us to machine complex and intricate components. We can offer a high-quality CNC multi-axis milling and turning service with components machined up to 300 mm and barfed up to 65 mm diameter. Large part CNC milling is also available up to 3000 mm long and 2500 kg.
