  • Fast and efficient plunging, especially for tough workpieces
  • Excellent for opening deep cavities using large milling heads
  • No predrilling necessary
  • Gentle on tools
  • Safe removal of shavings, even in deep drill holes
  • Simple programming
  • Also suitable for milling tools that are not center cutting

The drilling module

Lead angle

In contrast to conventional 3D machining, a lead angle allows for use of milling tools that are not centre cutting.

Automatic pitch adjustment

In the event of a collision, this function auto­matically adjusts the pitch until collision-free machining is ensured.
