Subject: iMachining benchmark at SolidCAM customer Meir Mechanics - saving 74% cycle time in Aluminum!
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.
