The new feature type allows T-slots to be quickly and easily recognised in the component. There are two types available for feature recognition: ‘T-slots’ and ‘Pockets with bottom and T-slots’. This feature information is incorporated into the ‘T-slot milling on 3D model’ strategy. It allows slots to be manufactured in a highly efficient way with just a few clicks.
Benefit: Simple and fast T-slot recognition and programming.
The infeed strategy has been optimised for the ‘Rest Material Roughing’ mode. The optimum infeed value is calculated using the ‘Use infeed optimisation’ option in connection with the ‘Additional chip thickness and depth’ values. The user can adjust the machining parameters to the conditions of the tool. This allows tools with extended cutting lengths to be optimally exploited and precisely controlled through the ‘Maximum infeed’ parameter.
Benefit: Faster machining and more economic exploitation of the tool.
