Five-Axis and Clever Controls Support Medical Manufacturing

Updated: Mar 6

In early 2020, small Minnesota-based shop M5 expanded its micromachining capabilities by purchasing a five-axis Kern Micro Vario machine tool. Soon after, it bought another.


“Not only does it result in cost savings,” Baklund says. “It also gives us the ability to do many more critical processes and achieve finer surface finishes, which brings profitability.”


Despite having no prior experience with five-axis machining or the Micro Vario’s Heidenhain 640 TNC control, Madsen was completing jobs within a week and a half from when M5 received its first Micro Vario.
