contour machining meaning
- [Mechanical engineering]
Machining of an irregular surface.
- tool-path optimization model and approximate algorithm for multi-contour machining
- The code for a 2 . 5D machining is significantly less than 3D contour machining, and the software and hardware requirements are ( traditionally ) less expensive . "'Drilling and tapping centers "'are inexpensive, limited-duty machining centers that began as a 2 . 5-axis market category, although many late-model ones are 3-axis because the software and hardware costs have dropped with advancing technology.
