When considering a 3-axis or 5-axis CNC router, every manufacturer must decide which machine is best suited to their unique needs. A 3-axis machine functions along the X, Y, and Z axes and is locked into lateral and vertical movements along straight lines. This is ideal for products with simpler, two dimensional designs. Diversified Machine Systems (DMS) offers a variety of 3-axis machines that are a great fit for many manufacturers.
But for makers who have larger-scale projects with more complexity, our 5-axis lineup provides greater functionality. A 5-axis machine adds the A and B axes, with spindles and workpieces that are both capable of rotating around multiple axes. We recommend a 5-axis machine if you intend to work with larger or denser materials, or with parts that have unconventional shapes or narrow cavities. This also allows for fewer manual transitions between tooling, which leads to faster production times.
Diversified Machine Systems offers an impressive lineup of 5-axis CNC machines, each with a universal platform that can be configured for a myriad of applications. All of our 5-axis models come with Fagor controllers, complimentary support, and a one-year limited warranty. With CNC routers that are strong, long-lasting, and made in the USA, we’re confident we have the right fit for you—no matter your manufacturing needs.
Here are the DMS 5-Axis Essentials, each of which is named after one of America’s National Parks:
If you are looking for a mid-range, high-precision machine for a wide range of applications, the Denali is the CNC machine for you. The 5-axis overhead gantry will help you expand your production capabilities with its efficient, compact design and its exclusive quick-change fixture system.
For manufacturers who need a machine that is perfectly scaled to their shop floor, the Everglade is available in a variety of sizes and styles. This is a medium- to heavy-duty router that can be used to process a variety of applications—from light materials to ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
With numerous applications and a specialty for large parts in the aerospace or transportation industries, the Glacier is a heavy-duty CNC machine. We recommend the Glacier for anyone who needs a continuous-use machine with complex machining requirements. The Fagor Sercos Drive System, which harmonizes with the Fagor Controller, is an added bonus.
For those looking to increase productivity and reduce downtime between part runs, the Mammoth is a great option. This continuous-use, feature-rich CNC router includes the option of sliding doors on both the front and back, allowing for easy loading and unloading of materials.
Like the Denali, Glacier, and Yellowstone, the Olympic is an enclosed router that makes for easier dust-collection and clean-up. It also features a removable center divider that allows for the machining of a greater variety of part sizes. The Olympic is best suited to materials like wood, composites, aluminum, plastics, foam, and honeycomb.
Providing superior speed and accuracy, the Redwood offers greater flexibility for complex machining requirements. This is a continuous-use, heavy-duty machine that can be used for a wide range of applications. It includes a dual helical rack and pinion drive system, along with 36 inches of Z.
If you need a 5-axis machine with a high degree of flexibility, the Teton goes above and beyond. Single or twin tables? Single or multiple spindles? Moving tables? We can arrange for whatever you need! The Teton can accommodate your unique production requirements and provide ultimate flexibility in part design.
For a real workhorse that rises to the occasion of a demanding production schedule, you can’t do better than the Yellowstone. This CNC machine allows for easy loading and unloading of large materials and can be manufactured with a universal fixture table that can perform multiple tasks at a time. Yellowstone is the perfect model for manufacturers who want as little downtime as possible.
