The unique, patented iMachining module from SolidCAM, seamlessly integrated in SOLIDWORKS and Autodesk Inventor, provides unbelievable savings and increased efficiency in the CNC milling operations, translating into profits and success for SolidCAM customers worldwide. iMachining saves 70% and more in CNC machining time and extends cutting tool life dramatically.
The unique iMachining Technology Wizard, provides optimal feeds and speeds, taking into account the toolpath, stock and tool material and machine specifications.
Shaun Mymudes, SolidCAM COO says, "The true value of CAM software is how it drives a CNC Machine to achieve incredible levels of cutting speed, while dramatically slashing tool wear, so the best way to show the bottom line benefits of SolidCAM’s iMachining is by demonstrating it in live cutting on CNC machines”. That’s why SolidCAM made sure to showcase LIVE cutting right in the booth at IMTS 2016.
SolidCAM's iMachining starred in the show on a Sharp 3-axis mill. Onlookers gathered around the machine to watch the iMachining chips flying live, with many commenting that they had, "never seen such fast machining in steel".
A small Defiance VTX tabletop mill, powered by iMachining, repeatedly cut a part in 17-4 PH Stainless steel. This small machine was originally designed to cut wood and foam only.
While the two CNC machines, cutting with iMachining, amazed the crowds, SolidCAM’s team was demonstrating the power of the latest SolidCAM and InventorCAM versions that support the full range of manufacturing applications in milling 2-5 axes, turning and advanced mill-turn for multi-turret and multi-spindle machines.
With the amount of crowds in our booth and the excitement generated by SolidCAM iMachining, IMTS 2016 was SolidCAM’s most exciting and successful exhibition in North America.
