Other features include swarf-cutting capabilities as well as a five-axis trimming (wireframe) strategy. Support for B axis (tilting live tooling) enables programming of five-axis milling with Y-axis offsets on lathes and multitask machines equipped with a live-tooling B axis. The software supports thread whirling attachments, making it well-suited for multitask machines with multiple axes (typically running with five-axis simultaneous motion), the company says. Thread whirling attachments provide the rigidity and rotary tools to make screws of high length-to-diameter ratio, such as ballscrews, worm shafts, feed screws and Acme screws.
