4-Axis Cutting Head involves the same processes involved in 3-axis machining, where a cutting tool is used to remove material from a piece to create the desired shape and profile. This machine operates on the X,Y and Z axes, but it also includes rotation around the X-axis. In most cases, the workpiece will be rotated to allow for cutting to occur around the B-axis.
4-Axis Cutting Head is useful when holes and cut-outs need to be made in the side of a piece or around a cylinder. This can provide quick and efficient work based off computer numerical inputs for precise results.
