I visited Rhytem Plast, who does molds from very hard steel for plastic parts, to demonstrate iMachining.
We did 2 iMachining cuts on one of his mold parts:
Material: H13 very hard steel
CNC Machine : Hartford with Fanuc controller
iMachining Cut # 1
Depth of cut : 18 mm
Tool : End mill, diameter 12 mm, teeth 5 (ISCAR)
Cutting time customer: 3:45 hr
iMachining Cutting parameters : level 6, step down 18 mm
Cutting time iMachining : 00:29 hr
iMachining Cut # 2
Depth of cut : 46 mm
Tool : End mill, diameter 16 mm, teeth 5 (FORD)
Cutting time customer: 4:01 hr
iMachining cutting parameters: level 6, step down 23 mm
Cutting time iMachining: 00:52 hr
Saving : 78 %
Very old Machine (12 years old), we worked with DNC on-line
The customer told us that we surprised him and that even with aluminum he doesn`t work with such high speeds!
He kept on saying: amazing!
He was surprised to find out that his machine can work with such high speeds!
He made a stop during the cut to check the tool status: the tool was like new..
The load on the machine spindle during all cut was under 10%.
The customer asked us who invented iMachining, because he never heard of any such amazing capability in any other CAM software..
