Hi Emil,

I visited SolidCAM customer Meir Mechanics. They make parts for Electronics.

We made an iMachining benchmark, cutting deep in aluminum part, on an indexial 4-axis machine. 


CNC Machine: MORI SEIKI

Material: 6061 ALUMINIUM

Depth of cut: 42 mm

Tool: End mill, diameter 16 mm, teeth 3  and diameter 10, teeth 3

Cutting time customer: 23 minutes 


iMachining cutting parameters: level 5  (no turbo)

Cutting time iMachining: 6 minutes

Saving by iMachining: 74 % in Aluminum!!


The director and his workers were in awe of what they saw - the director did not expect that you can save so much in aluminum, especially when working on the indexial 4-axis machine.

Next week, he asked me to show them the power iMachining 3D.
