What is Trochoidal milling?Trochoidal milling is a method of machining that takes advantage of high speeds while maintaining a low radial depth of cut (RDOC) and a high axial depth of cut (ADOC) to create a slot wider than the cutting tool’s cutting diameter. This is accomplished using a series of circular cuts known as a trochoidal tool path.
Instead of a completely linear radial tool path in conventional machining, trochoidal milling follows a spiral tool path with a low RDOC to reduce load and wear on the tool.
Which are the advantages of Trochoidal Milling?
Decreased cutting forces
- Reduced heat
- Greater machining accuracy
- Improved tool life
- Faster cycle times
- One tool for multiple slot sizes
