Karlo Apro, the author comments “5-Axis machining is a real growth area in manufacturing and many companies are now utilising the technology to remain competitive. My book is based on my own experiences of supporting 5-Axis machining and is designed to minimise the learning curve for new users and provide advanced tips and tricks for more experienced engineers”. He also talks about early response to the book “We had the first run of copies at the IMTS trade show and sold out well before the end of the show and we’ve had many more enquires since, so I’m delighted with the positive response.”
