Composite milling, our most powerful general purpose 5-axis cycle, enables you to create a multi-axis milling operation by selecting a machining pattern and tool axis orientation. It can be used to control all axes of the machine simultaneously. Six different machine patterns and five different orientation strategies make it possible to machine every area of the part.
Generate any complex 5-axis cycle Six different machining patterns Tool axes are defined independently from the pattern Optimal surface finish Reduced tool wear Easy to learn programming
Fluent machine movements Eliminates the need for re-roughing or semi-finishing cycles Uniform offset stock allowance Optimal surface finish
Tool moves along a nearly circular (trochoidal) path that constantly adapts to the shape of the channel Suitable for difficult-to-cut materials, such as titanium Can replace several phases of conventional machining Results in a uniform amount of rest material Constant tool load reduces tool wear
Improve surface finish Creates shorter CNC programs Reduces cycle time
Eliminates semi-finishing cycles to lower machining time Optimized tool paths increase tool life Lower machining temperatures improve part quality No coolant needed for most high speed cutting operations
Machine engine ports and intake and exhaust tubes Machine pump and condenser inlets and outlets Minimize tool tilt and unnecessary movement
Contour along a specific profile or part geometry Chamfer the edges of external and internal faces
Increases depth of cut Increases tool life Removes materials faster Improves surface quality
Easy and quick to use 3 different drive entity types Better surface quality Shorter cutting time
