Mazak 5-axis machine
Written by Dan Hilliard

Mazak 5-axis machine produces consistently higher quality parts

Titletown Manufacturing delivers excellence in machining small parts

One of the primary differentiators that separates elite parts manufacturers from the pack is the quality of their equipment. Titletown Manufacturing LLC has placed itself squarely among the leaders of parts manufacturers in Wisconsin with a series of equipment and software upgrades over the past year, including the Mazak 5-axis machine.

The Mazak 5-axis machine provides Titletown Manufacturing teams with the ability to achieve tight tolerances across multiple axes without moving the piece to another workstation. This single-machine process is critical for producing the precision parts the OEMs throughout Wisconsin and North America have come to expect.

“Our Mazak 5-axis machine allows us to process up to five sides of a part in a single setup,” says Titletown Manufacturing co-owner and director of sales Chris Fuss. “The machine’s cutting tool moves across the X, Y and Z linear axes and rotates on the A and B axes. That enables the machine to approach the workpiece from any direction.”

Software upgrade complements Mazak 5-axis machine

Titletown Manufacturing also invested in an upgraded version of Mastercam programming in its commitment to delivering top-quality parts for customers, including third-party suppliers for Department of Defense contractors. The addition of shrink fit tooling leverages the expansion properties of metal to create maximum clamping force and rigidity for precise cutting.

“These enhancements give us the ability to produce extremely high-quality parts as small as one-quarter inch square or diameter,” notes Titletown Manufacturing co-owner and director of operations Dan Hilliard. “They also minimize our production times, helping us deliver shorter lead times than were possible before.”

The machine makes it possible to produce complex shapes with cleaner surface finishes. When combined with Mastercam capabilities, the 5-axis machine can machine parts directly off customer-supplied models or files.

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

Titletown Manufacturing upgrades 3D machining capabilities

Titletown Manufacturing LLC, 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.”
