5 Axis
CNC Machines

5 axis CNC machining gives manufacturers the capability to produce complex parts in a fraction of the time that they would take using conventional 3 axis CNC machines. These rapid cycle times, plus ease of set-up, accuracy, flexibility and the quality of finish that can be achieved make 5 axis machining perfect for sub-contractors and operators working in hi-tech industries such as aerospace and automotive. In fact, many complex parts such as turbines can only be produced on 5 axis milling machines.

Our range of high quality, German 5 axis CNC milling machines covers all requirements, from compact units capable of producing small medical parts to incredible tolerances, through to huge travelling column machines with 50m in the X axis. Backed up by our programming, set-up and installation expertise, a 5 axis milling machine could revolutionise your productivity.

  • MCX

    The latest version of the successful MCX machining centres, with a well-conceived classification into 9 different types with 1,400 to 4,800 mm swing diameter and 1,500 to 20,000 kg payload. Robust sizing and performance, rapid traversing speeds of up to 65 m/min and acceleration to 5 m/s² ensure outstanding dynamics and short downtimes. A top-class machining centre that leaves nothing to be desired.

  • MCT

    The six MCT machining centres are designed specifically for multitasking applications. Milling, drilling, turning – all on one machining centre with high power density thanks to NC-controlled tilting spindle, strong turning tool holder and fast-turning torque table. Integrated horizontal and vertical turning replaces use of multiple additional lathes.

  • MCC

    As a stand-alone machine in 630 pallet format or as part of an interlinked production system. The MCC series consequently expands the lower end of the BW range. The new compact machine combines all BW key features: power, accuracy, outstanding stiffness and availability. Whether a horizontal unit with power gear spindle or A-axis for the 5-axis performance. Large bearings and a wide distance between the guide elements offer an outstanding stiffness. With its high torque values the machine is a real workhorse. The result: powerful cutting capacity for the machining of steel, cast iron and titanium.

  • MCR

    The perfect solution for all applications calling for heavy-duty cutting with optimum damping characteristics, coupled with high-precision fine machining. BW offers nine different types with 1,400 to 3,500 mm (option 4,800 mm) workpiece swing diameter and 1,500 to 20,000 kg payload.

  • MCµ

    Machines of the MCµ series are designed for ultimate precision and long-term accuracy. Close to µ accuracy and – as always at BW – not just on the day of commissioning, but over many years of use. The MCµ series is no standard machine trimmed for accuracy. The MCµ is based much more on a fundamentally new concept. Because the final µ is the result of many specific individual measures, such as careful design, best materials, strict production methods and very experienced employees.
