3 Axis CNC Machining Services
Evolved from the practice of rotary filling, 3-axis machining is one of the most widely used techniques to make mechanical parts. It is a relatively simple process, using conventional machining tools like the milling machine, which allows material to be worked on 3 axes (X, Y and Z). The machining tool then proceeds to remove shavings in three basic directions corresponding to the axis of a flat surface. It is very suitable for parts that are not too deep, but this technique is greatly limited when trying to handle a deeper part with narrow cavities. 3 axis models are multifunctional, accurate machines designed for:
●Cutting Sharp Edges
Used in prototyping and custom parts manufacture 3 Axis CNC milling is more precise than manual machining, and can be repeated in exactly the same manner over and over again. Because of the precision possible with 3 Axis CNC machining, this process can produce complex shapes that would be almost impossible to achieve with manual machining. 3 Axis CNC machining is used in the production of many complex three-dimensional shapes.
Our advanced equipment can machine with incredible accuracy, completing demanding jobs effortlessly. Whether you need an initial prototype or need a run of components that are consistently excellent, we can deliver.
ByTune provides a complete 3 Axis CNC milling service supplying high-quality components at a reasonable cost. Our end-to-end service is fast and reliable. From initial 3D CAD modeling of the part within our 3D SolidWorks CAD package to seamless generation of machining G codes via our VX CAD/CAM package means that you can avoid the need for costly 2D drawings and move rapidly to manufacture of precision parts.
4 Axis CNC Machining Services
4 axis milling equipment can handle an extensive range of capabilities when compared with standard 3 axis milling; making it possible to produce complex components at higher speeds with even more accurate results. 4 axis milling facilitates a streamlined process with its additional tools and attachments that provide greater maneuverability during the milling process.
4 axis milling makes it possible for side holes and slots to be machined into parts without resetting the machine. Multiple surfaces can be machined in a single setup, and high-level surfacing is possible. A single setup can process dimensional information and designs from multiple datum sets. Fewer setups mean fewer opportunities for error and fewer movements of the products being machined, which lead to greater consistency and precision for repeated products.
The 4 axis CNC machine can be used for different purposes, including:
●Hobby Prototype Building
●Medical Equipment Creation
ByTune has 20+ machines with 4th axis rotary heads, and two horizontal CNC machines that can rotate work pallets on 4 axes. With just a single setup for a project, our 4 axis milling machines can complete additional processes in less time, making it possible to finish customers’ projects with far shorter lead times.
ByTune specializes in manufacturing parts to precise specifications using multi-axis CNC machining capabilities. Our quality work has included parts for the robotics, aerospace, medical and energy markets. By utilizing automated multi-axis machining and CAD/CAM software, we can produce parts to meet your specifications. We have the capacity to handle a variety of your production needs from prototype to short, medium or long run production.

5 Axis CNC Machining Services
What is 5 Axis CNC Machining?
5 axis machining is unique in its ability to effectively process part sizes and shapes with essentially infinite possibilities. Like 3 axis machines, the cutting tool of a 5 axis machining center moves across the X, Y, and Z linear axes, but also rotates on the A and B axes – allowing the cutting tool to approach components from any direction. An experienced machinist can achieve incredibly complicated geometries with high precision when using all 5 axes in conjunction. The skilled and highly experienced CNC machinists and programmers at ByTune are capable of machining complex shapes, undercuts, and complicated angles – all in one setup to boot.
The ability to machine a component to completion in a single setup not only adds to the precision achieved during machining but also reduces tooling costs, overhead costs, and labor time, resulting in the lowest possible cost per part. 5 axis machining centers eliminate several inadequacies of conventional CNC machining techniques, including multiple setups, part transfers, and inspections; part handling, and errors associated with human involvement/interference.
5 axis machining is used across a number of industries to produce precision dependent components with fast manufacturing times and repeatable accuracy, including:
ByTune provides 5 axis CNC machining services that achieve an angular tolerance of two thousandth's of a degree (.002°). We specialize in true 5 axis contour machining, manufacturing "almost impossible to make" 5 axis components with ease. It takes more than just excellent machining and programming skills to perform true 5 axis work. Our manufacturing engineers are remarkable machinists and have been with ByTune for 10 - 20+ years. They program, fixture, set up the machines, and produce the components themselves, running the job until all the fine-tuning is complete no matter how complex the parts are that an order calls for.
Benefits of 5 Axis Machining
●Work pieces are not moved through several workstations, they can be completed on the 5 Axis machine alone—finishing components with greater accuracy
●Less fixture preparation—saving time and money
●Single setup required for machining complex shapes—increasing productivity
●Can use shorter cutting tools—producing higher cutting speeds and less tool vibrations for higher precision
●Ability to achieve outstanding surface finishes—improving overall part quality
ByTune serves these industries: Satellites, Aircraft, Aerospace, Optical, Medical and more, consistently exceeding industry quality standards and the capabilities of normal CNC machining factory. We are happy to take on prototype or production machining work. Contact us now!
