  • US Patent:
    20140010609, Jan 9, 2014
  • Filed:
    Jul 5, 2012
  • Appl. No.:
  • Inventors:
    Piotr S. Trzaskos - Saratoga CA, US
    William S. Masek - Pleasanton CA, US

  • International Classification:
    B23C 9/00
    B23C 3/13
    B23C 5/12
    B23C 3/12
  • US Classification:
    409 80, 409132, 407 30, 409138
  • Abstract:
    A method for machining may include providing a workpiece with a major (e.g., top) surface and an edge at a perimeter thereof. The method may also include providing a machining tool including an outer rotary cutter and an inner rotary cutter. The workpiece may be machined in a single pass of the machining tool around the perimeter thereof. Machining the workpiece may include simultaneously machining the edge with the inner rotary cutter and machining at least a portion of the major surface with the outer rotary cutter. Accordingly, the edge and at least a portion of the major surface of the workpiece may be simultaneously machined in a single pass. The inner rotary cutter may also simultaneously machine an undercut at the edge of the workpiece. A related machining apparatus including the machining tool is provided. Further, a computer readable medium may include program code for performing the above-described operations.

  • International Classification:
    B24B 51/00
    G06F 19/00
    B24B 19/26
  • US Classification:
    451 5, 700187, 700164
  • Abstract:
    A method and an apparatus for machining an exterior surface of a metal alloy casing of a portable electronic device to form a combination of a flat edge surface, a curved edge surface and a flat bottom surface is disclosed. The flat edge surface is abraded by contacting a first flat section of a rotating cutting tool along a first circuit of a pre-determined continuous spiral path. The curved edge surface is abraded by contacting a convex section of the rotating cutting tool along additional circuits of the first pre-determined continuous spiral path. The pitch of vertical movement of the cutting tool is adjusted for each circuit of the continuous spiral path based on a resulting curvature of the metal alloy casing. The bottom surface is abraded by contacting a flat section of the cutting tool along a second pre-determined alternating direction linear path.
