Plunge Milling siemens NX

Plunge Milling is a unique milling operation that is best used in deep areas that require a long tool. Successive plunge motions take advantage of the increased rigidity when a tool moves along the z-axis to efficiently rough out large volumes of blank. The reduced radial force makes it possible …
