Schneeberger has developed software to permit the easy grinding of even the most complex tools. The grinding strategy within Schneeberger’s easy to use proprietary software is selected according to the cutting out of end cutters. Cutting strategies are defined according to tool specification. Examples include:

  • Corner radius milling cutters with a radius edge not affected by the run in of the slot shape and are standard tools with a standard helix angle up to 30°
  • Slot cutting angle between 0 and 10 degrees, slot depth (v) of between 0 and 0.5mm, and those with a slot depth (v) of between 0.5mm and 1mm
  • Corner radius milling cutters with a helix angle of more than 35° slot cutting angle of between -8 and 16°, a slot depth (v) between 0.5 and 1mm. (For this category radius edge correction to ensure specifi c positioning needs to be carried out).
