MACHINING DEFINITION (MENU NO. 4)
The following slanted surface machining types can be programmed.
The basic behavior of machine tools for these machining types is similar
to that for conventional Y–axis machining.
D Making holes on slanted surfaces (center drilling, plain drilling, and
D Patterned machining on slanted surfaces (rectangular pocket milling)
D Contour machining on slanted surfaces (milling along an arbitrary
Performing rigid tapping on slanted surfaces needs the rigid
tapping option and three–dimensional rigid tapping option.
Use the linear interpolation–type positioning mode for
positioning (G00) in slanted surface machining. Otherwise,
the tool may collide with the workpiece or machine or
behave unnaturally, possibly leading to tool or machine
breakage, or injury.
