Hello Emil,

I visited SolidCAM customer, IAI – Commercial Aircraft Group, to demonstrate the power of iMachining 3D

We cut the first part from Aluminum 6061 with iMachining 3D

CNC Machine :  Awea
Machine parameters : Spin rate: 6000  Feed :2000
Material : 6061 Aluminum
Depth of cut : 50 mm
Tool : End mill, diameter 16, teeth 3 ( Hanita ) 

Cutting time customer : 32 minutes
iMachining Wizard : level 5  ( no turbo ) 
Cutting time iMachining : 14 minutes (57% saving) 

We cut the second part from 4340 Steel with iMachining 3D 

CNC Machine:  Awea
Machine parameters : Spin rate: 6000  Feed :2000
Material : 4340 Steel
Depth of cut : 24 mm
Tool : End mill, diameter 12, teeth 4 (Hanita)  

Cutting time customer : 50 minutes 
iMachining Wizard: level 5  (no turbo) 
Cutting time iMachining : 12 minutes (76% saving)


The demonstration with iMachining 3D was watched by five people and they were all very impressed.  They asked me to give a quote for iMachining 2D and 3D.
