If youÕve spent any amount of time in manufacturing, you know that efficiency matters. Michael Cope, the author of this book, was co-owner of a job shop before he joined Hurco. As a machinist and applications engineer, he always evaluates the most efficient way to approach a part to minimize setup time and reduce cycle time. ItÕs just part of his DNA. ThatÕs precisely why he is such a proponent of 5-axis CNC. Adopting a 5-sided machining process is the most efficient way to instantly increase the profit margin on existing jobs that you manufacture on a conventional 3-axis machine. In this book, Mike breaks down the information about 5-axis and 5-sided machining from a machinistÕs perspective. Whether youÕre just learning about 5-axis machining or youÕre already adept at 5-axis, youÕll learn something new. A great go-to book written for machinists by a machinist.
