The event was attended by more than 50 people from various backgrounds - academics, researchers, industry professionals of the precision and manufacturing Industries, and machine manufacturers.
The audience was introduced to iMachining technology, the latest breakthrough in SolidCAM's CAM technology. iMachining reduces cutting times up to 70% by optimizing tool engagement and cutting feed through the entire machining process. iMachining enables much deeper and more efficient cutting, driven by a “knowledge-based technology wizard”.
The presentation was followed by a live demonstration of iMachining on several parts. Those parts where machined live on one of the IMH's machines, a Kondia Seaska. The results left the audience astonished. One participant noticed “how the part was cold after it was machined at such high speeds” this is because of the intelligent toolpath and optimum cutting conditions of iMachinning, over 90% is removed from the cutting zone by the flying chips which leaves the part cold to the touch. It is a great advantage since the part being machined does not suffer from thermal stresses and the accuracy is better conserved.
Saves 70% and More in CNC Machining Time
Material Removal Rates soar for every tool and insert - even with small diameter tools, you can use a full depth of cut, using the entire length of the tool in one pass. One of a kind optimized tool paths push cutting speed and productivity even further. Get the maximum potential from your existing machines - many of our customers even cancel their new CNC machine orders!
