The 2012 R2 version of Delcam’s PowerMILL CAM system for high-speed and five-axis machining has an additional feature when programming machines with a rotary table: polar milling.  With polar milling, the x or y axis is locked and the third axis of movement provided by the c axis.  This can be more efficient when drilling or milling features arranged around a centre of rotation.  It can also produce smoother movement and better surface finish with spiral machining.
