Hi Emil,

I visited SolidCAM customer Meir Mechanics. They make parts for Electronics.

We made an iMachining benchmark, cutting deep in aluminium part, on an indexial 4-axis machine.

 

CNC Machine :  MORI SEIKI

Material : 6061 ALUMINIUM

Depth of cut : 42 mm

Tool : End mill, diameter 16, 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.
