Subject: iMachining 3D benchmark in Cadron Aviation: saving 56% in cycle time , cutting deep in Aluminum
I visited SolidCAM customer Cadron Aviation technologies: http://www.cadron.com/
CADRON specializes in the field of aerospace applications, including military and civilian aircraft.
We demonstrated an iMachining 3D benchmark, cutting deep in an Aluminum part.
CNC Machine: YCM (FANUC)
Material: 2024 T351 Aluminum
Depth of cut: 40 mm
Tool: End mill, diameter 12 mm, teeth 3 (Iscar)
Cutting time customer: 63 minutes
iMachining cutting parameters: level 6 (no turbo)
Cutting time iMachining 3D: 28 minutes
Saving by iMachining: 56 % in Aluminum
For the second side of part – it is only possible to fix the part by vacuum. With regular cutting, the part moved when the programmer started to cut.
At the iMachining demonstration, the programmer could not believe that even though they have to fix the part with vacuum fixation, the part can be cut at such high speed.
