Mahuta Tool provides multi axis milling services specializing in prototyping and short run production. Our multi axis machining center provides 3 and 4-axis milling to businesses in Illinois and the Midwest, nationwide, and in Canada.
In CNC machining, axis refers to the number of motors operating individually to position the tool.
A basic vertical milling center has 3 axes (X, Y, and Z) and is used to machine planes or convex shapes. 3 axis milling is used for hole drilling, slot milling and making sharp edges.
A 4th axis adds rotary movement in order to machine features on an arc or curved surface (for example machining a gear). 4-axis machining can be used for a wide range of applications including turbine components, valves, sockets, construction equipment and much more.
4-axis machining is more efficient and precise than performing the same operation manually using conventional 3-axis milling equipment.
We use vertical 4-axis CNC milling to produce components and equipment ranging from turbines and engine parts to fittings and spacers. We work to close tolerances of +/-.00001” and are ISO 9001:2015 registered and Mil-Spec compliant.
Materials used in 4-axis machining include a wide variety of metals and plastics, meeting the needs of practically any project.
