Hi Emil,

Cutting steel part with iMachining in INCOMAC company

INCOMAC in Karmiel is a long-time SolidCAM customer. They do mainly electronic packaging machining.

Three weeks ago I showed the Plant Manager, Sharon, the power of iMachining by cutting an example part in Aluminum 6061.

The iMachining cutting was very impressive and successful, and the plant manager told me that he wants to see more iMachining cutting, in steel, on one of their parts.

Yesterday they called me. They gave me a steel part that they must produce in large quantity, two hundred every month.

The part material was 304 stainless steel.

Each part worked 20 minutes on their Leadwell CNC machine (In their normal method).

I did the programming with iMachining very quickly, and sent the GCODE to the CNC machine.

I used Iscar tools (two cutters):
1. End Mill - Diameter 12 mm, 5 teeth
2. End Mill - Diameter 8 mm, 5 teeth

The cutting on the machine with the iMachining toolpath took 5 minutes. (iMachining LEVEL3 only)

Cycle time saving by iMachining = 75%

They were shocked and had no words, calculating how much iMachining would save on the 200 part run, that they must machine every month!

They already have a quote, and they want to order iMachining 2D + Turning Module.
