For the machining of cutting edges in particular, the plunge milling strategies offered by 3D and 5-axis machining represent an efficient way of removing material quickly and reliably. For this, the cutting edge is defined either via a curve or a face. You can restrict machining in the axial direction by defining a secondary curve or a distance.
With 3D machining, the material can be removed by swarf cutting or plunging. Rest material machining is easily calculated using a reference job.
With 5-axis machining, you can also include undercut areas in the plunge job, such as for cutting edge. The tool tilt is specified by the lateral inclination. In order to optimally adapt a retract movement to the component, you can specify both a distance as well as a circular or linear movement profile.
Benefit: Efficient machining of cutting edge.
