Common Multiaxis Myths

Multiaxis machining is often seen as something only big players in industries like aerospace can handle. However, there are several myths surrounding it that we're here to debunk.

Myth #2: Multiaxis is only for aerospace parts. In reality, almost any shop can benefit from multiaxis. It reduces setup times, which is crucial in today's job market where skilled machinists are scarce. Multiaxis machining can streamline operations, making your shop more efficient and competitive.
