If you've spent any amount of time in manufacturing, you know that efficiency matters. While saving a couple of seconds in cycle time can significantly increase efficiency in a high production manufacturing environment where thousands of parts are produced for one job, minimizing setup time is the key to increasing efficiency in job shops that manufacture small numbers of parts for multiple jobs each day. Mike Cope, the author of this book, was co-owner of a job shop before he joined Hurco. As a machinist and applications engineer, he always evaluates the most efficient way to approach a part to minimize setup time and reduce cycle time. It's just part of his DNA. That's precisely why he is such a proponent of 5-axis. It is the most efficient way to instantly increase your profit margin on existing jobs that you manufacture on a conventional 3-axis machine.
