Lathe Programming

When using CAD CAM, the Compensation cutting strategy follows the final profile’s shape throughout the roughing process, unlike cycles’ linear movements. This strategy offers several cutting advantages, including:

  1. Tool remains in constant contact with material, enhancing tool life and roughing quality.
  2. Reduced retractions as machine follows workpiece shape.
  3. Toolpath adjusts to material shape, eliminating cutting in air, especially for special materials or repairing existing parts.
  4. Decreased cutting time due to fewer rapid movements.
  5. Zigzag compensation path with neutral or circular tool follows final piece shape, minimizing retractions.
