Why users say “WOW!”
Unique iMachining tool path features:
Morphing Spirals: Beyond Trochoidal Cutting
iMachining uses an advanced, patented morphing spiral that gradually conforms to the geometry of the feature being machined rather than an old-fashioned, simple spiral tool path (racetrack). This maximizes tool to stock contact -or- "tool in the cut" time.
Moating: Divide & Conquer
In order to most efficiently attack large areas of material removal as well as stand-alone islands, they are separated or subdivided into smaller sections using iMachining’s patented Moating technology. This maximizes the efficient morphed spiral cutting.
Eliminate Wasted Time & Motion
iMachining tool paths only cut the stock that needs to be removed, eliminating “air cuts”. From the initial approach, right to the last cut, dynamically updated stock tracking ensures every tool path actually cuts material.
Smart Repositioning: Keep the Cutter in the Game
iMachining moves the cutting tool from one cut to another at the cut depth, only retracting when absolutely necessary.
When compared to any other CAM system to mill a part, SolidCAM's iMachining wins any benchmark in ease-of-use, programming time, cycle time and tool life.
