Fast, accurate contour milling with high surface definition

Manufacturing processes in mold and die making, as well as in aerospace technology, can be optimized through modern milling technologies like High Speed Cutting (HSC). Economic benefits, however, can only be achieved if both the machine tools and the control can handle higher traverse speeds than those used in conventional machining.

Accuracy of feed axes

Every year’s new machine tools have been showing improvements in effi ciency and power. Increasing feed rates and acceleration values have reduced machining times. At the same time, increasing accuracy has permitted ever-closer tolerances. On the one hand, these developments enable the machining of increasingly critical parts; on the other hand they simplify the manufacture of complex assemblies. Selective manual assembly and bench work can often be reduced. Also, higher accuracy of parts normally results in improved function of component assemblies. Dimensional accuracy in motor transmissions, for example, has increased service life and reduced noise emission
