At South West Engineering and Fabrications Ltd, we offer multi axis CNC milling services for your complex, high precision components. Traditionally there are 3 axis which enables the table to move in 2 directions and the 3rd axis allows the cutting tool to be lowered to drill into the metal.
However, we chose the 4 axis CNC milling machine, as the 4th axis allows the table to rotate. This ensures continuous milling, meaning no down time for repositioning and as a result provides a quicker lead-time and more cost-effective product for our customers.
Using this manufacturing process means that a variety of materials can used to fabricate parts on sheet metals such as; aluminium, steel, brass and as well as wood, fibreglass or plastic, in a timely manner.
Due to the intricate detail, that the 4-axis milling machine provides these processes are used to manufacture complex parts for industries such are automotive, marine, food technology and medical purposes.
