No need for a series of different turning tools because one turning tool can be used in a variety of different angles and the cutting blade can be inverted for clockwise and counter-clockwise machining operations. Machining time can be reduced by up to 50 % by using two cutters at the same time (4-axes-turning).
This feature allows to permanently alter the B-axis angle during the turning operation. Contours which normally require a series of turning tools can now be produced in just one turning cut, e.g. jet engine discs or piston crowns of large Diesel pistons. The advantage of the feature is the smooth and stepless surface generated as well as the reduction of turning tools.
