ACP Composites, Inc. (ACP), a custom composites manufacturer and distributor, is pleased to announce it has added a 5-axis precision machining center to its manufacturing capabilities in Livermore, CA. The addition of this multi-function tool enables ACP to offer a wider range of milling, aperture machining, contouring, finishing, drilling and three-dimensional machining with accuracy, speed and ease. 5-axis machining also allows them to deliver an additional range of part sizes and shapes.
The term "5-axis" refers to the ability of a CNC machine to move a part on five different axes at the same time, allowing the cutting tool to approach the part from all directions for versatile cutting of complicated work piece without any compromise in rigidity or stability.
Now ACP can machine a component in a single setup, reducing time, cost and improving machining productivity. Additionally, greater machining accuracy and higher quality surface finishes can be achieved.
This acquisition is part of ACP’s commitment to helping their customers take advantage of the capacity of composite materials and help differentiate products.
According to company CEO George Sparr, "The addition of this tool is the crown jewel in our manufacturing facility. We are extremely proud to add this sophisticated piece of equipment, making us a full-service composites fabricator."
