Karlo Apro has over 30 years of hands-on experience in the manufacturing industry – bridging countries, continents, and multiple languages (both human and G-Code.) He has worked in Hungary, Germany, Canada, and the USA, specializing in multiaxis solutions. He spent many years setting-up, programming and repairing CNC equipment, and has used a number of different Cad/Cam systems. In addition to being a multiaxis consultant, he has worked directly for CGTech (the makers of VERICUT) and CNC Software Inc. (the makers of Mastercam.)
The author has instructed countless multiaxis training classes over the past decade. These classes covered topics such as: operating CNC equipment, programming CNC equipment, both manually and with Cad/Cam systems, and building virtual machines with different verification systems. Through the years, he has met many professionals around the world and came to a realization that they all have the same questions, misconceptions, and concerns when it comes to 5-axis machining. The need for unbiased information on the subject became apparent and the decision to write “Secrets of 5-Axis Machining” was made.
