Onsrud engineers many of our frame components to be used cross-platform in our 3, 4, or 5-Axis Models. By utilizing standard frames, parts and electronics, Onsrud was able to leverage the economies of scale present in our 3 and 4-Axis machine sales, and dramatically lower the overall price point of our 5-Axis models, without compromising performance or value. For example, almost all of the parts on a 5-Axis Extreme Series are also used on the 3 or 4-Axis Extreme Series; and, many of the parts on the 5-Axis Pro Series are also used on the 3 or 4-Axis Pro Series. Of course the heads are different and the frames are taller and wider on the 5-Axis machines, but the machine uses many of the same standard components, with the same off the shelf, readily available, non-proprietary, and proven parts.
The one-piece thick-wall engineered steel base of the 5-Axis Wide Pro Series was specially engineered with internal steel reinforcements. It is designed to handle the extreme weights of large blocks of non-ferrous metal, large tooling or fixtures for composites and sheet metal parts. You will be able to stack cut aluminum skins, or even the large and thick assemblies we tackle in the RV, marine, and aircraft industries. After being welded into a single structure, the machine base is heat treated and slowly cooled to create a stress free, normalized and lasting machining platform. Then the precision machining for all of the critical components is accomplished in one set- up, with all of the operations performed on the same face, to guarantee machined-in accuracy and stability. This base also incorporates the top-rail design of the Pro Series which allows for shorter and stubbier one- piece steel vertical columns, which are more rigid and have more leverage over the bridge than other side rail designs. Lastly we use large vertical Z-Axis rams with large bearing spacing for increased rigidity, fast positioning, and smooth accurate cutting. The result is a high precision machine that handles the largest workpieces, and the heaviest materials and tooling, offers unique automation and material handling options, and provides the best possible cost per table size relationship available.
If you do not have unlimited time to wait for your machine to finish, and are picky about your part’s fit, and finish then do not just buy the cheapest 5-Axis Machine you can find. Be more demanding, and expect the highest possible accuracies, at the fastest feed rates that the tooling can sustain, without chatter, or melt back all over a part. With a little research, you will find that Onsrud offers an incredible 5-Axis value for the performance and capability the machine delivers. Investigate for yourself how our philosophy of standardization allows Onsrud to offer custom-sized large-format moving gantry 3, 4, and 5-Axis CNC Routers at standard machine prices, with the reliability and parts availability of standard machines.
