SINUMERIK 828D, 840D sl: Working with several cutting edges

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
Making two fits with different tolerance and different cutting edges are being thematized.

In the workshop environment, machine operators sometimes have to machine two different fits with the same diameter. The fit tolerances should be different.
This requirement can be implemented by calling different cutting edges of a tool. While working with several cutting edges, it is possible to assign fits with their own dedicated offset memory to a tool.
In the subsequent description, a shaft should have two different fits at the front shaft seat.
