45° bevels & taper compensation

Our Tilter is the worlds most versatile 5x kinematic mechanism since it handles both 45° bevels and taper angle compensation. Together with the compensation tools in our CNC, Tilter will give you the most precise and fast cutting on the market.

The unknown taper compensation problem

In the video below you'll see two types of 5x kinematic mechanisms cutting the same part with bevel and taper angle compensation. Both will have similar results on the bevel sides, but if you look closely on the straight edges, our Tilter is moving much faster. How is that?

It's because of mechanical advantages where the Tilter is not experiencing the same singularity problems other kinematic mechanisms are. An easy way to explain this is how much rotational movment each solution is doing when traveling from -1° to +1°. The Tilter only have to travel the 2° distance between -1° to +1° while other solutions have to rotate 178° for the same angle difference.

If you're looking for increased speed and quality, the Tilter is proven to be the best on the market.
