Applications for CNC lathes | Angular Milling

Angular Milling | CNC lathe

We can often find features in our drawings where an angular machining operation is required. With standard toolholders these features are not achievable because only operations in X and Z directions are possible with standard live toolholders. However, there are some adjustable angle heads in the market that allow you to orient the tool and machine angular features.

Features like coolant or lubrication holes are usually angular to try to get the liquid through the part. With this document CMZ will help you to set up a solution to be able to machine these features.
