The term ‘profile machining’ is used to refer to the milling of vertical surfaces described by profile curves. profile machining requires higher precision (1/1000 mm) than regular 3D machining (1/100 mm) with the erosion of sharp vertices should being especially avoided. Although, profile machining is very essential for making trimming and flange dies, it seldom brought into focus. This paper addresses the technological requirements of profile machining including machining width and depth control, minimizing toolware, and protecting sharp vertices. Issues of controller alarms are also addressed.
