The macro performs roughing of open slots using the trochoidal milling strategy. Particularly suitable for milling slots on high-strength materials such as stainless steel, Duplex and other heat-resistant alloys.
The macro performs roughing of an open slot using the trochoidal milling strategy, whereby production times can be significantly reduced especially on high alloy materials such as duplex, heat resistant alloys and titanium alloys.
The trochoidal path developed by the macro does not have any linear section, in fact it is obtained by chaining several circular interpolations. Since it is not a point path, as could be generated by a CAM, but since it is a circular interpolation, it does not require machines with a high-speed block reading function. Furthermore, by developing the path completely in circular interpolation, the attachment to the part is very smooth and guarantees greater process reliability.
With the macro, it is possible to choose whether to carry out only the roughing or possibly also the contour finishing of the walls. The trochoidal milling path is fully parameterised using the parameters defined in the call, starting from the direction of orientation of the groove, up to the pitch of the trochoidal milling.
In addition, the macro can be used to define the direction of machining, whether down-cut or up-cut, and any depth of cut in Z in the event that the groove is not to be executed in a single cut. With a single block, the operator can generate the roughing and finishing path in less than a minute, i.e. the time to fill in the necessary parameters.

How do I know what exactly the macro does?
Click on the ‘MANUAL’ icon to find the macro documentation with examples and parameter descriptions. Pay particular attention to the last paragraph ‘Warnings’.
After how long do I receive the macro?
After clicking on the buy button you will be directed to the purchase page. If you pay by credit card or PAYPAL, at the end of the process you will find in your personal area the macro ready for downloading with its manual and parameter diagram. If you pay by bank transfer, the macro will only be available once the amount has been credited.
How do I load the macro into the machine?
The macros for sale online do not require our presence for installation. Once purchased, the macro will be loaded onto your CNC machine just like a normal programme. To transfer the programme to the machine tool, use the method already in use on your machine (SERIAL, USB, PCMCI, NETWORK).
On how many machines in my workshop can I use the macro?
With the purchase of the machine you also acquire the licence to use the macro for all the machines in your workshop. It is not possible to sell or transfer the macro to third parties. For more information, please read the contractual conditions carefully.
Why are some macros not saleable online?
Some macros are marked ‘NOT SELLABLE ONLINE’ because they require the presence of a technician for installation. This is the case, for example, when customised screens for entering parameters have to be installed.
