Hi Emil,

Report : 4.4.13

I and Vladimir visited Videx, a SolidCAM customer, to demonstrate iMachining 

Videx develop and manufacture machines for special tasks

http://www.videx-machine.com/Videx1/Machines.aspx

They gave me a part to cut with iMachining

CNC Machine :  LAGUNA

Material : 4340 Steel

Depth of cut : 20 mm

Tool : End mill, diameter 10, teeth 4

Cutting parameters : iMachining level 5 , step down 20 millimeters.

Cutting time iMachining : 14,5 minutes

The CNC Machine is very old (about 20 years!)  - Spin Max 2000 rpm.

They usually worked with it at feeds of 100-130 mm/min and spin of 1300 rpm.

With iMachining we reached feeds of 790 mm/min and max spin of 2000 rpm.

Vadim, the programmer and Michael, the production manager, were extremely impressed - they could not believe that such feeds and speeds are possible for such a machine!
