With 2.5-axis machining, as defined, two axes move simultaneously, the third axis (".5") serving as the feed axis.

Contour controlled 2.5-axis machining includes:

  • Pocket milling (may be multiply nested)
  • Real contour milling, that means, tracing curves

Furthermore, multiple drilling and milling cycles are offered, such as centering, drilling, reaming, thread cutting, rectangular pocket milling, groove milling and circular pocket milling.
