For Faster Finishing
Port Machining is a dedicated solution for the machining of tubular apertures. Taking the guesswork out of machining complex 5-Axis ports, it enables the machinist to program efficient toolpaths and generate them faster than ever before.
The port can be virtually any cross section, retaining the design intent, and not compromising multiple surfaces with the need to regenerate them into a single surface.
Area Clearance slices are expertly generated perpendicular to the port centreline, using 3+2 positioning. The machines rotational axes will be locked for maximum rigidity during roughing, changing to simultaneous 5-Axis only where safe moves are required.
Dedicated finishing strategies are offered to allow you to choose the most efficient toolpath. Plunge Finishing toolpaths are generated parallel with the aperture centreline, or Spiral Finishing toolpaths are continuous radial passes.
