    Most of us here love to see high quality machine work and industrial robots are now capable of extreme precision at high speed. But the crew from Daishin Seiki Corporation have decided to take it one step further and show the world what they can do a 5 axis CNC in their spare time.

    What starts as a solid block of aluminium is transformed into a piece of art in front of your eyes. Showing all the steps it takes to produce such a detailed finish, even though the video is only two and a half minutes long. It would definitely take a lot longer than that to produce this fine piece of art work.

    What isn't shown in this clip is what is involved to program the CNC (Computer numerical control) Mill. Whoever wrote the program would of spent days or even weeks behind the scene making sure all the kinks were ironed out and that the process was a smooth as possible.

    The work that can be done by these 5 axis CNC machines is unreal! In the right hands, they can make almost anything out of just a block of aluminium!

    • It's so amazing this machine and you can make what ever you want... I want buy one 5 Axis machine i have work with hermle 5 Axis aerospace parts ...It's same high speed milling machine ... but have no so much power like this...

    • Not really. Machinists get bored making the same damn part day after day so that new machines and such can make say you phone that you’re using. Using your skill to make something really neat once in awhile makes the trade worth it.

    • How long does it take from start to finish.
