5-Axis Machined Components

5-Axis Machining Services Set Owens Apart from the Competition

Owens Industries has consistently delivered remarkable results using their 5-axis machining services. If you are seeking impeller or turbine work, you know the complexity of this component’s contours. We seek these challenges, knowing our equipment and 5-axis machine operators have the skills to make impellers with the highest accuracy and precision, no matter the size demands.

Prescription Glasses Moldings

Owens has also created inserts that are used for eyeglass molding – not the frame but the actual mold for the prescription glasses. Though this may sound simple, it is anything but. Visualize the complex curvatures of a bi-focal lens. Now make it a progressive bi-focal; add astigmatism and off-center axes. Many CNC machine shops are not capable of producing the surface tolerance and integrity achieved with the same precision as Owens’ 5-axis machinists. This is just one example of how our team's mathematical skills benefit customers.

Precision Collimators

Another example showcasing our incredible dedication to precision is the production of collimators. Collimators demand ultra-high precision and accuracy to create a high number of holes (depending on its size, a collimator can have 500-1000 holes), each next hole pointing at a different angle than the proceeding hole, with a positional accuracy to be within 5µ to 10µ and an angular accuracy to be within +/- 0.002°. Owens meets these challenges head-on, and successfully achieves the exact specifications these components require—accurately machining each hole so they meet at one focal point.

Ventricular Assist Devices

A third example is the main axial impeller used in the heart pump for VAD—Ventricular Assist Devices. When machining medical devices, precision and accuracy is of the utmost importance - Owens is dedicated to meeting these requirements, delivering precision machined components safe enough to implant within the human body.

Quote from the heart pump manufacturer/customer:

Your people have achieved, within 6 months, what others took 2 years to make, and your tolerances were better.

Our machinists perform ultra-precision 5 Axis Precision Machine work with 5 Micron Tolerance and .0005° angular accuracies.

An example of our 5 Axis Precision Machine Work: We produced keratomes for Lasik surgery. A Keratome is used to slice a 165 microns (.006496") thick slice off the cornea of the eye. This slice had to be +/- 5 micron accurate! We produced the entire cutting head system using our 5 Axis Ultra-Precision Machining Centers and our 5 Axis Wire EDM system.
