5th Axis to appear on 'How It's Made'

October 26, 2014 - 07:00pm

Machine vises from San Diego manufacturer 5th Axis Workholding will be featured on the popular Science Channel USA show, "How It's Made," on Nov. 21, 2014 at 9 p.m. (Eastern time). The program explores how many of the everyday objects or products we seldom stop to think about are made. 

"We are big fans of 'How It's Made,' so being selected to appear on such a prestigious show is a huge milestone for our company and staff," say 5th Axis founders Chris Taylor and Steve Grangetto. 

The focus of the episode will be a line of 5th Axis machine vises. A full 4 weeks of vise production was covered in a 4-minute, 40-second segment. The crew from Productions MAJ spent a full day filming production and manufacturing at the 5th Axis plant in San Diego.
