The Advantages of 4-Axis Machining for Customers


Lindstrom Machining has invested in 4-axis machining technology on most of our machines. But how does that benefit our customers?


1. Enhanced Precision and Complexity

One of the primary advantages of 4-axis machining is its ability to achieve enhanced precision and tackle complex geometries with ease. Unlike traditional 3-axis machining, which is limited to three linear axes (X, Y, and Z), 4-axis machining adds a rotary axis (A or B), enabling the cutting tool to move along an additional rotational axis. This added degree of freedom allows for multi-sided machining and intricate contouring, resulting in parts that were once deemed too intricate to manufacture with utmost precision.


2. Reduced Setup Time and Cost

4-axis machining significantly reduces setup time and associated costs, making it an attractive option for customers seeking improved efficiency. With the capability to machine multiple sides of a workpiece in a single setup, we can minimize the need for time-consuming repositioning and retooling. The result is faster production cycles, reduced lead times, and ultimately, cost savings that can be passed on to our customers.


3. High Production Efficiency

For customers with high-volume production requirements, 4-axis machining offers an efficient solution to meet demand without compromising quality. By optimizing tool paths and minimizing idle time, this advanced technology can achieve faster cycle times and maximize throughput. Customers can enjoy increased production efficiency, ensuring their projects are completed on time and within budget.


4-axis machining represents a game-changing technology that brings immense benefits to customers seeking precision, complexity, and efficiency in their manufacturing projects.
