5-axis machining center enhances custom machined parts quality and efficiency

Titletown Manufacturing upgrades 3D machining capabilities

Titletown Manufacturing, a leading producer of custom machined parts in Green Bay, recently brought online significant investments in the form of a Mazak 5-axis machining center and upgraded Mastercam programming to enhance its precision part production capabilities.

The Mazak 5-axis machining center allows Titletown Manufacturing specialists to process five sides of a part in a single setup, while the Mastercam upgrade provides the ability to make complex three dimensional custom machined parts directly off customer-supplied models or files.

“The combination of the Mazak 5-axis machining center, shrink fit tooling, and the Mastercam programming upgrade enables us to produce a much higher quality part,” explains Titletown Manufacturing co-owner Chris Fuss. “We are able to achieve tight tolerances across multiple axes.”

A commitment to superior custom machined parts in Green Bay

The term “5-axis machining center” refers to the number of directions in which the cutting tool can move. The cutting tool moves across the X, Y and Z linear axes as well as rotating on the A and B axes to approach the workpiece from any direction.

The resulting output features higher part accuracy because the workpiece does not have to move across multiple workstations, highlighted by superior surface finishes and better overall quality. Shrink fit tooling adds another level of quality by reducing vibration and allowing for faster and smoother cutting.

“We made the decision to upgrade our Mastercam programming capabilities at this time to complement the abilities of the Mazak 5-axis machining center,” notes Titletown Manufacturing co-owner Dan Hilliard. “In addition to improved quality, these investments will help us reduce lead times and deliver parts faster than we could before.”

Titletown Manufacturing, which has expertise in machining large parts in Green Bay, also recently upgraded its MazaCAM programming for the production of simple and custom machined parts as well as its JobBOSS enterprise resource planning system to track orders in real time.

Titletown Manufacturing Leads in Machining Large Parts in Green Bay

Investment in Technology Provides Enhanced CNC Machining Capabilities

Despite the large number of machine shops in northeast Wisconsin, a relative few excel in machining large parts in Green Bay. Titletown Manufacturing, which has invested significant resources in equipment and software upgrades over the past couple of years, has the capability of machining large parts for a wide range of industrial applications.

One of the key additions to the Titletown Manufacturing shop floor is a vertical milling machine that features an 80-inch x-axis and a 27.5-inch y-axis. The unit performs multi-axis CNC machining operations for steel, stainless steel, aluminum and plastic parts within .0001 tolerance.

“Machining large parts has become a differentiator for us,” says Titletown Manufacturing co-owner Dan Hilliard. “Customers are relying on us for a growing number of large parts jobs, and software upgrades are helping us enhance our level of quality.”

Mastercam 2018 Upgrade Enhances Machining Large Parts

Titletown Manufacturing’s investment in the Mastercam 2018 release introduced the ability to make parts directly off customer-supplied files or models. This is particularly helpful for machining large parts on the vertical milling machine, which excels at producing a wide range of sizes, shapes and depths.

“Mastercam 2018 and MazaCAM programming software integrates with all of our CNC tool assets for exceptionally accurate machining,” says Titletown Manufacturing co-owner Chris Fuss. “They help us produce tight-tolerance parts while enhancing safety for our workforce.”

Titletown Manufacturing serves as a trusted supplier for OEMs in multiple industries, with parts ranging from one-quarter inch to 19 inches in diameter, and one-half inch to 80 inches in length. It has the flexibility to run a wide range of job quantities, all produced to precise specifications.
