5-axis simultaneous machining
This 5-axis machining cycle is the efficient alternative to conventional 3+2 milling for machining on or near steep walls. Similarly, a tool tilt to the Z-axis is predefined and collision-free, if possible. The continuous movement of the tool around the Z-axis is either automatically calculated by hyperMILL® or calculated as a result of defined tilt curves. Possible collisions are automatically detected and avoided by changing the tool angle. Optimised tool tilt angles improve cutting conditions when milling surfaces.
