5-axis milling

5-axis milling machines from MODIG are available as single or multi-spindle. Our 5-axis solutions for horizontal, vertical, or inverted milling have full automation options available.

5-axis Milling is one of many terms that comes up when discussing modern milling technology. 5-axis capabilities are no longer a luxury but a necessity. Both large and small industries are switching to 5-axis milling technology to enjoy a more efficient workflow and greater flexibility. There are many possibilities with 5-axis milling. But what exactly is 5-axis-milling? And why is it so important? This article will provide information about the five axes and guide you to the MODIG 5-axis mills. Machines that will allow you to achieve top-quality quality.



MODIG provides a range of 5-axis inverted, horizontal, and vertical 5-axis milling machines optimized for companies that require the best-in-class speed and technology. Our milling 5-axis mills offer several benefits, including unique solutions and flexible configurations. Discover our 5-axis milling machines below.

The term ”5-axis” is used to describe the range of directions that the machine’s tool can travel when milling. The spindle of a 5-axis milling machine can move along three linear axes (X, Y, and Z) and can rotate on two axes A and B, or A and C, simultaneously. This allows the tool to be able to approach the workpiece in any direction. 4-axis milling uses three linear axes as well as two rotational ones to accomplish complex surface machining in one setup.

A 5-axis CNC machine can move a tool in five different directions simultaneously, which is a significant improvement over traditional CNC machinery that only has a spindle that can move in three directions. A 5-axis milling machine can work from five sides simultaneously, so it is possible to approach the part from any direction. This allows for complex surface machining and saves time and money.


5-axis milling has become a popular method of working within the metal fabrication industry and has many advantages. You can make changes quickly without having to affect the production. And remove the material with high precision and accuracy quicklyThere are many benefits to 5-axis milling. We will now focus on the most important benefits.

Complex Shapes: Further movement creates milling angles or arcs that were previously only possible with many special fittings and additional installments.

Fewer Setups: Five-axis milling machines can mill every surface in one setup. You will need multiple configurations to mill complex geometry using manual rotating. 5-axis technology saves time and allows you to reach the highest level of productivity.

Higher Accuracy: Every time you take out a part of the machine or manually adjust the workpiece, you lose the exact alignment that will allow you to attain the highest quality. 5-axis Milling improves precision and accuracy.

Better Surface Finishing: A 5-axis milling machine uses the rotating fifth & fourth axes to position the component closer to the cutter. Due to this shorter cutting tool could be used. A more concise cutting tool is less likely to be affected by vibrations at higher speeds, which directly affects the surface finish. The milling tool can operate at faster speeds with fewer vibrations, which results in better surface finishes and overall higher quality.
