This is an average manual milling technique cutting parts on three axes – X, Y, and Z. 3-axis milling operates by the center standing still while the cutter moves around it. 3-axis models are multifunctional, accurate machines designed for:
Similar to a 3 Axis CNC vertical milling machine, 4 axis milling machines are vertically operated and built to function in a timely fashion. This form of cutting includes X, Y, and Z axis cutting plus one rotary axis movement. There are two possibilities of operation - 4 axis simultaneous interpolation (also known as true 4th axis) or just 4th axis positioning, where the 4th axis can reposition the part between 3 axis operations, but doesn’t actually move during the machining.
When you need the most precisely-machined components for your equipment, 5-axis milling is the way to go. Owens Industries specializes in 5 axis machining because of its superior functions compared to the 3-axis and 4-axis CNC machines, and is capable of impeccable product and parts creation.
5-axis machining has the capabilities to efficiently produce:
Owens Industries goes beyond the capabilities of normal CNC machine shops, helping you achieve the tight tolerances and ultra precision our competitors can only dream of accomplishing. With a clean room type facility, 5 axis machining centers (capable of achieving unparalleled accuracies), Wire and Sink EDM machines with micron tolerances and talented, highly skilled and experienced machinists (many of whom have been with us for 30 years), you can count on the expertise and experience of Owens Industries to produce the most complex components meeting your exact specifications with ease.

No matter if you work in the medical field or at a company that manufactures aerospace parts, the professionals at Owens Industries can manufacture the best Swiss CNC components.
While we certainly have the usual 4 axis CNC machining centers, CNC lathes, accurate grinders, hones and lapping equipment, it is our advanced 5 axis machining centers and wire EDM that gives us additional and unique capabilities. We can perform 3, 4, and 5 axis CNC milling with tolerances from millionths to thousandths of an inch. Tolerances in the 3 to 10 microns range are easily achieved by our machinists. Our best work (speaking in metric), in a unique situation, was achieving a tolerance of 0.5 microns. Which is typically even beyond our capabilities.
The simpler 3 or 4 axis CNC precision machine work and CNC lathe work produce tolerances in the range of 20 to 100 micron (.00008” to .004”). Our commitment to ultra-precision work limits the size of our work envelope to a maximum of X:24”, Y:14”, Z:12”.
While we do have grinders, we do not accept production grinding work. We use our grinders exclusively to support our complex project work.
CNC machines are more accurate, efficient, and safer when compared to other forms of metalwork (including casting and laser cutting). They allow for l production work to be completed to higher quality standards, ensuring each part machined is perfectly accurate. With 5 axis and machining centers and micron accuracy EDM, our capabilities go far beyond that of normal metal fabricators. Owens Industries is particularly qualified to handle high-end ultra-precision machining work. Call our machinists today to learn about our services and how they can benefit you and your complex component needs.
With 5 axis milling centers and micron accuracy EDM, the capabilities of CNC machines go far beyond what normal metal fabricators can achieve. Meeting your complex component needs is best done with CNC machines because of their flexibility, wide applicability, speed, specific precision, convenience, and ability to reduce liability. With the many CNC services Owens Industries offers, we cover each of our clients with these guarantees, providing superior CNC machining services to all Wisconsin, Midwest, and United States companies.
5 axis milling is one of the most capable axis services available (exceeding the possibilities of 3 and 4 axis machining). Owens Industries utilizes 5 axis machining because of its flexibility in cutting and producing parts for our clients. It has the unique capability to cut complicated shapes without having to set up separate parts. This CNC technique is not only efficient, but can save companies money as well. It gives you the option to cut complex parts from solid blocks of metal and other materials, eliminating the need to use the time-consuming casting process.
Five-axis machining has shorter cutting tools, allowing for faster cuttings speeds and reduced vibration of the tools itself – minimizing imperfections in the material being cut. Additionally, when it comes to hole drilling with 5 axis, users can save a lot of time.
Most machine shops use alternative metal working equipment to drill a series of holes in parts from different angles – this can waste time and money. 5 axis milling machine heads can be programmed to adjust and line up along different axes automatically. This gives 5 axis a hand over other metal working equipment because it can work much faster with its flexible setup.
The benefits of CNC machining continue to grow as we analyze wire EDM and what makes it superior to other metal working equipment. Although many companies choose 5 axis milling for their parts manufacturing, wire EDM is also a popular choice because of its wide applicability. It can cut almost any material, creating a spark between two electrodes (the wire and work piece) in dielectric fluids. Materials commonly machined by Wire EDM include:
Aside from its wide material cutting range, wire EDM boasts a number of unique capabilities companies may find worthwhile when ordering parts with Owens Industries. It ensures fast turnaround times, reducing production costs and ultimately saving your company money! Tight tolerances and polished finishes are easily produced as well.
Another form of electrical discharge machining, capable of cutting complex pieces wire EDM cannot, is Ram / Sink / Plunge EDM. Also known as Cavity EDM, an electrode erodes the workpiece while submerged in a dielectric fluid, cutting the desired cavities or shapes into a part. With the process occurring in a fluid medium, metal chips from cutting are easily removed and cooling the sinker EDM tool is effortless – keeping the operation moving forward in a timely manner.
This improved cooling is caused by the automatic switching off of the electrical impulse, it improves the wear resistance of the electrode and without effort improves the surface integrity of the workpiece being cut. The electrical impulses have a frequency between 50 and 500 KHz, keeping the electrode from breaking down over time due to its electrical discharges. This allows time to be utilized efficiently, helping companies save time and therefore directly aiding in the effort to save money.
Aside from flexibility, wide applicability, and speed, every CNC Shop should be able to provide detailed, precise cutting services to their clients. Owens Industries offers the best in micromachining solutions. If you need CNC machining services to engrave, drill, cut, or deposit materials, trust Owens Industries. We’ll use the ideal processes – from 5 axis milling to wire EDM and Sinker EDM or a combination of all three – to achieve the exact specifications demanded.
