The production of continuous grooves in the range 4-40 mm.
This is characterized by the fact the main motion is carried out by the machine. The secondary motion is carried out by the product. Movement can be either linear or circular. Vertical shaping is suitable for preferably used for cutting internal shapes, spring slots on wheel hubs and so on.
On new and well maintained machines flatness and parallelism of 0.02 mm per 1 m is achieved. In normal conditions flatness of 0.1 to 0.2 mm per 1 m is achieved..
