The power of 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
