Abstract: Unlike in three-axis machining, in five-axis machining the flexibility in tool orientation in space is extremely high. To obtain the full advantage of five-axis machining, the computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) system must have similar flexibility in tool orientation. Unfortunately, most CAM systems that support five-axis machining do not provide the required flexibility.

A centrifugal impeller is a perfect example of a part that can be efficiently designed and manufactured with the help of a computer. Machining these types of complex shapes requires a CAM system with a high degree of flexibility in tool orientation.
