New Publication: Secrets of 5-Axis Machining

Typically, the best way to get information on 5-axis machining has been to talk to experienced peers in the industry and hope that they will share what they have learned. Visiting trade shows to talk to machine tool and CAD/CAM vendors is another option. The downside is that these people will only give you their own point of view.

Secrets of 5-Axis Machining is an unbiased, to-the-point description of 5-axis machining that presents information gathered during the author’s 30 years of hands-on experience in the manufacturing industry. Secrets of 5-Axis Machining will demystify the subject and bring it within the reach of anyone who is interested in using 5-axis machining to its full potential. This book was written by our Mastercam 5-axis Applications Engineer, but it is not specific to any one software. Instead it discusses broad manufacturing theories and techniques.

This book features full color illustrations that help to explain the theories and principles. It also provides a CD that contains AVI files, high quality illustrations, and sample parts. A sampling of topics covered in the book include Common Misconceptions, Know Your Machine, Cutting Strategies, Choosing a CAD/CAM System, and much more.
