Subject: Amazing iMachining Win- Saving 78% cycle time in Aluminum!
Our SolidCAM Customer, Silver shadow, is an important client, who develops and produces advanced weapons for elite commando units.
The owner of the company is a former commander, who himself developed this weapon-corner shot (see attached picture).
I visited this SolidCAM customer to create a post processor for ARIS-SEIKI 4-axis CNC machine.
During my visit I saw a very big potential for the customer to save time in their parts with iMachining 2D.
I spoke with the factory manager and he agreed that we will demonstrate iMachining to them, by doing actual cutting on their part.
I called David Gontar and we prepared an iMachining program to cut their part on the machine.
The owner, the shop manager and the chief engineer, all watched the cutting. They were extremely impressed by the savings we achieved with iMachining.
iMachining cutting Details:
CNC Machine: Aris Seiki with Fanuc controller
Material: ALUMINUM 7075
Depth of cut: 68 mm
Tool: End mill, diameter 16 - 3 teeth (ISCAR) and diameter 12 - 3 teeth (ISCAR)
Cutting time customer: 28 min.
iMachining cutting parameters: level 4 (no turbo)
iMachining Cutting time: 6 minutes
Saving by iMachining: 78 % in Aluminum
We did another cut 2 weeks later and now they decided to buy the SolidCAM iMachining module.
