ESPRIT - Trochoidal Channel Roughing

5-Axis Trochoidal Channel Roughing

5-Axis Trochoidal Channel Roughing is a high-speed roughing cycle that maintains a constant cutter load to remove the material in a channel bounded by two walls.

Benefits of Trochoidal Channel Roughing

• Tool moves along a circular path that constantly adapts to the shape of the channel
• Suitable for difficult-to-cut materials, such as titanium
• Can replace several phases of conventional machining
• Results in a uniform amount of rest material
• Constant tool load reduces tool wear
• Cutting of undercut geometries

Applications for Trochoidal Channel Roughing

• Ideal for machining deep cavities with thin walls
• Developed for the machining of blisks, but can be used in any application
• Perfect for use in cases where tool pressure presents a risk when removing material between two walls
