NUMROTO offers several choices and options in order to supplement the overall programming system with special functions that are not directly linked with the family of tools.
These supplementary options facilitate programming or provide additional options for special calculations and processes.
Drills / step drills
You can program a large variety of drills and step drills with the help of the drill module. There are a number of drill point shapes available that can be adapted individually.
For step drills, normal step angles or even form steps, defined with a profile, are possible. Typically, the diameter for a step drill is always in increasing order.
With the milling cutters module, classical end mills of cylindrical and tapered type can be created with the top shapes flat, ball nose, corner radius and corner radius end mill.
There are appropriate add-on options available for end mills with multiple helices, rough profiles, wave cut etc.
With the form cutter module, you can create all conceivable profile tools with or without a helix and with any profiles (rising or falling). Even front cutting profiles are possible, and, in addition, many different profiles and helical paths can be combined in a tool.
All classical forms of burrs are supported and, in addition, you can even specify arbitrary shapes with the help of a DXF profile.
Group serration can be specified separately and it is also possible to grind chip breakers.
In the section 'Tool museum' a large collection of different tool types with 3D simulation images is documented.
Many of these tools cannot be assigned to a NUMROTO tool palette or can be programmed in different ways.
In the description the necessary articles are documented, with which the tool is programmed or recommended by the NUMROTO application engineering.
With the recommended articles, the tools can be programmed with significantly less effort and partly also more plausibly.
Several medical tools can also be produced with NUMROTO.
Depending on the shape, the milling cutters or drills / step drills module is used for this purpose.
Counter Boring Tools
Classical counter boring tools can be programmed easily with the help of the drill module.
Special options are available particularly for the design of the flutes.
Apart from the tool families already mentioned, NUMROTO supports the programming of practically all conceivable types and shapes of tools.
A few potential examples are listed in the following:
Different tools can be sharpened or even sometimes produced for the gearing industry.
Among others, this includes resharpening hobs and shaper cutters.
