OOSTHUIZEN, G.A.; JOUBERT, H.J.  y  TREURNICHT, N.F.. Using palletised work-holding to emulate 5-axis machining of aerospace components in the developing world. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2009, vol.20, n.2, pp. 193-203. ISSN 1012-277X.

This paper proposes the application of precision pallet technology, together with common 3-axis milling, to machine certain complex aerospace components that are normally 5-axis machined. In this approach a set of different customised precision pallets are used to present each complex plane to the 3-axis machine as a series of horizontal planes for machining. After machining one surface, the pallet is exchanged for another that has been pre-setup in machining time. Trials confirm the viability of the approach, with capital recovery in less than a year.
