2x5 axes CNC profile milling centre
Explanation:
Since 1997 BUFFOLI has introduced 3 new flexible machining systems into its production program.
They are four-spindle machining centers with 2x5 axes and two flexible transfer machines

When secondary edge details are required or when the profile must be machined for aesthetic reasons, we provide full CNC profile milling of your parts. Accurate and repeatable profile dimensions simplify the setup and fixturing of additional machining operations and also reduce tool and equipment wear.

Hi Rob, I\'m sure one of our engineers could do a better job explaining it than I can, but here\'s a stab at it. Some tools, like a radial-arm saw, can be adjusted to operate at different angles. These are the axes (plural of axis). Horizontal, vertical, diagonal, etc. axes.

Not too many hits for either 2x5 axes or 2x5 axis as an adjective, but \"axes\" is used at an Italian and French site and \"axis\" at this UK site.
2x5 Axis facility available with machining possible to high tolerances.

super, Kim, put me on the right track (I'd been wondering where the axles came in!) Your quote ("with 2x5 axes") is correct in that context, it's just that "we" Brits. leave the noun uninflected when it's an adjective: a 3-point turn covers 3 points, a 4-wheel vehicle has 4 wheels, and so on.
