5-Axis Machining


The machining lab here at Waterloo is designed to conduct research into 5-axis machining. 5-axis machines are becoming increasing popular in the industry but the techniques required to take advantage of the additional flexibility of these machines are still in their infancy. Here at Waterloo we have focused our effort into developing tool-positioning strategies that take advantage of the ability of 5-axis machines. In addition, we also have interests in NC machine and controller design, and in mechanistic modelling.
