I just got a call from the guy at Rotary Airlock.

He said that just purchased the SolidCAM with iMachining software.


He said he is cutting Inconel and said it is extremely tough to cut.

He said they just ran their first test (just got the post working yesterday) and said they went from 60 Minutes down to 3 minutes on their first test.

Also he said he got at least twice the tool life. He was really impressed.

He also stated he was really happy with all the guys in support but specifically said Kevin did a great job of helping them out in the last few days. Great job Kevin.

He said if the second test goes as well, he is going to invest in a second seat.
