5 Axis CNC Routers

Rocky Mountain CNC Solutions knows that there are shops that would benefit from a 5-axis CNC router.  Even if you don’t have simultaneous 5-axis work, such as an impeller or propeller , sometimes the parts you are producing on your 3-axis machines will be more profitable when you use 5-sided machining on a 5-axis CNC router.

3 Axis CNC Routers

Rocky Mountain CNC offers a wide range 3 Axis CNC routers options. These machines can process wood, plastics, foams, composite materials and non-ferrous metals.  Industries that most commonly use  3 Axis CNC routers are cabinet and sign shops, furniture and medical manufacturers, and art & design.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I look for in a machine ?

First you need to examine and prioritize your needs.  Some of the questions to ask yourself is how important is precision, finish, productivity, tool life & price ?  These questions will set your path. The price question usually gets answered once the other questions are addressed.  

Remember, (this always happens) the day after the machine is put in operation the purchase price is all but forgotten.  Performance and productivity are the criteria by which the CNC machine will be judged daily for the remainder of it's life.

I think the better question is, what is my cost per part ?  And have I lowered my original production costs by increasing the quality, tool life, throughput, and productivity ?

What tolerances are achievable and practical ?

This is a question that is asked all the time but is sometimes hard to answer.  Often someone will ask, "can you hold .002" (or whatever)?"  Naturally, tolerances can be held, but they can change depending on how the part is made.  Scales, thermal compensation can also be added to a machine improve accuracy.  Your sales rep should welcome the opportunity to discuss your particular requirements.

I have a job that will run year round. Would I save money by purchasing a machine to produce the product in-house vs. contracting it out ?

This is a question that one would normally assume the answer is yes, but it sometimes depends on your product.  We can guide you to making the correct determination.  

Don't ignore the idea of a "Job shop" though.  "Job shops" normally have several machines, programmers, set-up men, and operators.  And most of all, they have a lot of experience.  Job shops can be very helpful handling overflow, backlog, and everyday production. (if you want to focus on the product and not making it) For continuous work, most shops will discount their services.

What is the most important consideration when purchasing CNC equipment ?

For me, finding a supplier who is committed to a long-term relationship and has the technical expertise to couple you with the right equipment to support your needs.  

Nothing causes your delivery times or product quality to suffer more than selecting a supplier based solely on the fact that they were the "Lowest bidder".

Do I need to learn a programming language like G-Code to operate CNC ?

No, not initially.  The software programs available today will allow you to import pictures and drawings or make your own and then the program will generate the appropriate code to make your part.

That said, it certainly doesn't hurt to learn a little about G-Code.  It's not that difficult and only requires you to learn a few relatively simple commands or codes to create or modify a program.  It is really beneficial when you need to make changes on the fly.

We haven't really heard of DMS and FMT brands before, why ?

DMS (Diversified Machine Systems) and FMT (Freedom Machine Tools) are so reliable, owners don't normally sell them and because of that, they are rarely seen on the secondary market.  In essence, our speed, accuracy, repeatability, and reliability, equates to a lack of market exposure.  DMS's experts have over 30 years of CNC manufacturing experience and fyi... these machines are proudly made in the USA.

As a side note, I would never recommend getting a used CNC machine.  The used CNC market is littered with machines that cannot hold tolerances and/or were cheaply made.  Don't buy someone else's problems, if you can't afford a new CNC machine, you should look for the next best thing, a factory reconditioned one.  


We won't tell you our customers names, but we are proud of what we have accomplished for them. And yes, we treat our customers like partners and they seem to like it.
