SLANTED SURFACE MACHINING
Slanted surface machining can be programmed for the following machine
Spindle: Main spindle only, or main spindle + subspindle
Tool post: ATC type or turret type tool post (one path)
Note) Two–path machines (those having two tool posts) are not
Controlled axes: X, Z, C, Y, β (the β–axis is for tilting the tool.)
In slanted surface machining, only positioning can be
performed for the tool angular axis and C–axis. The
following machining types, in which the tool angular axis
and C–axis are controlled, are not supported.
D Machining in which the tool axis is always kept facing in
the normal direction.
D End face machining, cylindrical–surface grooving, polar
coordinate interpolation machining, and cylindrical
interpolation machining which are performed by tilting
the tool axis.
