CNC Axis Routing

CNC 5 Axis Routing

5 Axis

From low-volume start-ups and low-cost tooling to high-volume and large-format production capability, the extensive scope of the routering and CNC machining services on offer make Ansini the ideal choice for any project.

With a total of eight industry-leading Maka 5 Axis CNC machines giving a footprint of up to 1250mm x 2250mm x 950 mm high, we can meet any requirements for CNC plastic machining and complex trimming, with a high degree of product consistency.

In order to achieve 100% accuracy in the CNC routing process, it’s essential to use the correct tooling as well as the correct software. We are able to program the trim using CAD solid model data to direct the cutter paths for an accurately finished product.

Bespoke and fine work products can be trimmed and finished by hand or by using our comprehensive selection of smaller trimming facilities.

The summary of our CNC machining services offered include:

  • 3 Axis CNC Routing
  • 5 Axis CNC Routing
  • Onsite jig tool storage facility

CNC Capabilities


Significant investment in Maka 5-axis CNC routing offers clients an unbeatable combination of accuracy, repeatability, reliability and efficiency when it comes to the trimming and finishing of vacuum-formed parts.

We have invested heavily to now incorporate twin beds and automated tool changing, resulting in greater processing speeds and enhanced efficiency.

CNC Software Demonstration

Software and Programmes

The Tebis off-line programming software we use has been set up to work directly with 3D SolidWorks, IGES and STP CAD files. Our other capabilities in CNC plastic machining include CNC 3-axis routing, tool development and onsite jig and tool storage.

We are also able to trim and finish bespoke and fine-work products by hand, or by using our comprehensive selection of smaller trimming machinery.

What is CNC Machining and what does it stand for?

CNC is short for Computer Numerical Control. It’s also sometimes referred to as Subtractive manufacturing, as it involves removing parts of materials such as plastic to create a finished component or part of a component. This automated program is controlled through motorised machines which help with time and accuracy.

CNC machining uses unique strategies to help to create complex shapes, holes, slots and grooves for unique components. CNC machining can be used to create some exceptionally unique pieces, some companies have even created specialised ice-cubes using this process.

It’s not just plastic that can be used with CNC machining, marble and even titanium can be milled to create parts and components that are specific and unique in their design.

CNC 5 Axis Tool

What is 5 Axis CNC machining?

As the name suggests, 5 Axis CNC machining is when the tool is placed along five different axes at the same time in order to create a complex, yet unique part.

5 Axis CNC machining is also seen as time saving and cost efficient process, which is why it is widely used in various industries, most notably the Aerospace industry.

What is CNC Trimming?

CNC trimming is a finishing process used to ensure your plastic parts meet the required specifications. Our CNC trimming service is highly versatile and can efficiently trim your plastic components with high levels of accuracy to ensure all your plastic products are finished to the highest quality.

Our CNC trimming services are an extension of our vacuum forming service meaning that we can manufacture and finish your parts without the need of external services.
