Our innovative finishing module features perfect surfaces created in a very short time. Innovative strategies for the machining of planes, surfaces with any curvature, and prismatic fillets facilitate highly efficient finishing. Compared to conventional methods, time savings of up to 90 percent can be achieved when combining the method with a conical barrel cutter. Intelligent automated functions ensure optimal tool orientation and fit. Plus, hard-to-reach areas can be machined with ease.
The following machining strategies are available for tangent plane machining:
(1) Machining the face
(2) Machining the face with limit
(3) Machining the limit
The face is machined with different orientations in specific areas. A high level of surface quality between the orientations is achieved thanks to a defined overlap.
The entire face undergoes 5-axis simultaneous machining. 5-axis simultaneous machining is especially effective with dynamic machines.
Bottom surfaces with undercut situations and edge areas of high walls or pocket bottoms can be optimally machined using the strategy for conical barrel cutters.
In collision areas, the tool tilts upwards away from the contact point or guiding angle.
Barrel-shaped tools use a section of the circumference, allowing for very large radii. For example, the compact design of the tools allows for a cutting radius of 500mm. Types:
The conical barrel cutter represents a completely new type of milling tool geometry that was developed by OPEN MIND. Thanks to this innovation, faces with minimal curvature can be efficiently machined.
