Adaptive Toolpath Strategy
It's considered a high efficency because it can easily extend your tool life using a different path compared to the traditional OFFSET strategy.
- The tool never work on full load.
- Tool wear distributed uniformly along the flute
- Less power needed from machine
- It never exceed tool engament angle, in this way on the tool is never "overloaded" with material to remove
- It's not necessary have particular machines to get benefits of this
This is the common default OFFSET toolpath. In indicated point the tool work almost at full cut and there is a big engagement angle.
This one is the toolpath generated with ADAPTIVE strategy . You can see the tool works with constant load and never exceed a high engagement angle. In this way you can use deeper passes in order to distribuite the force all along the flute.
