SINUMERIK 828D, 840D sl: Testprogram for Advanced Surface

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

A high surface quality, precise contours and shorter machining time are decisive parameters in tool and mold making. CYCLE832 and the "Advanced Surface" option, which are directly interconnected with one another, provide all of the necessary requirements in order to be able to machine a high quality product. While executing CAM programs in the high-speed cutting domain (HSC), the SINUMERIK control is capable of high feed velocities (short paths) and smooth surfaces (in the µm range as well as high accuracies. The machining strategy comprises roughing, prefinishing and finishing.

A test program is available that checks as to whether SINUMERIK is set for optimum HSC milling operations. This program reads the machine data of the "Advanced Surface" option, and possible incorrect settings can be identified.
