Report : 9.4.13
I visited SolidCAM customer Zarkon. They are Cutting tool manufacturers.
We made an iMachining benchmark, cutting deep in a steel part.
CNC Machine: EQUIPTOP
Material: 1020 Steel
Depth of cut: 20 mm
Tool: End mill, diameter 7 mm, teeth 4
Previous cutting time customer: 37 minutes
iMachining cutting parameters: level 5
Cutting time iMachining: 5.5 minutes
Saving by iMachining: 86% in cycle time
The programmer Sergey was so astonished with the result of the first part that he had to cut two more parts just to make sure these really are the savings!
After cutting the three parts, the tool remained in perfect condition!
