Our state-of-the-art machine shop features a broad range of machine tools including several 5-axis machining centers. 5-axis machining allows for the spindle and/or work piece to be machined on five sides (top, front, back, left & right sides). Additionally, can use five axes to simultaneously cut compound angles and other hard to reach surfaces. There are many advantages to this freedom of motion (when compared to 3-axis machining) including:

Recent additions to Keller’s lineup of 5-axis machining centers include:

Parpas XS 63 5-Axis Gantry Machining Center

The Parpas an ideal choice for machining hard-to-reach surfaces and deep cavities. In addition to high speed and the ability to perform heavy-duty machining on hard materials (steel, Inconel, titanium, etc.), the CNC milling tool machines highly complex shapes with a single setup. Highlights include:

  • Roughing straight milling head (5,000 RPM)
  • Universal indexing right angle head (5,000 RPM)
  • Universal five-axis high speed milling head (20,000 RPM)
  • X-axis travel = 236”
  • Y-axis travel = 118”
  • Z-axis travel = 59”
