1. OVERVIEWSLANTED SURFACE MACHINING
The slanted surface machining function supports slanted surfaces that are
determined with rotation center O’ (x, z) and the slanted surface slant
angle. The function allows up to six phase angles to be specified for the
This feature enables a surface tilted at an arbitrary angle to be machined.
The following figures can be defined for creation on tilted surfaces. They
are entered for slanted surfaces (Y’Z’ plane) to be machined.
D SL–CIRCLE HOLE (up to six C–axis phase angles can be specified.)
D SL–LINE HOLE (up to six C–axis phase angles can be specified.)
D SL–RANDOM HOLE (up to six C–axis phase angles can be
D SLANT PATTERN (up to six C–axis phase angles can be specified.)
D SLANT LINE (only one C–axis phase angle can be specified.)
The following machining programs can be created for a slanted
D Hole machining (center drilling, plain drilling, and tapping)
D Patterned machining (rectangular pocket milling)
D Contour machining (milling along an arbitrary figure)
