Edgecam 2016R1 | Ramp Cut Strategy - Rough Turn Info Icon
Edgecam 2016R1- Rough Turn Cycle offers a ‘Ramp’ strategy. This method is typically used for machining deep recesses with double sided turning inserts.
Tool life is extended as the contact point on the insert is constantly changed, thus avoiding the possibility of notching.
