Many shops are using their Swiss and multitasking turning centers inefficiently. SolidCAM has developed an intelligent iMachining tool path generator that helps them operate faster and more easily, delivering no-compromise 3D modeling capabilities. SolidCAM avoids the need to slowly build a program operation, then have to wait for the simulation. iMachining can significantly reduce machining time and extend tool life. The latter benefit is achieved because iMachining protects the carbide substrate from tensile force while also utilizing full depth of cut. Another benefit of SolidCam is its iMachining Wizard eliminates the time-consuming trial and error process. Finally, its advanced tool table comes with predefined tool assemblies.
- Multitasking turn mill centers machines are very expensive and they usually don’t have the capacity for large cutting tools.
- In order to compress machining time but also extend the life of your cutting tool you should use iMachining.
- iMachining uses advanced milling and will help to reduce cycle times and leads to faster feed rates.
“You can work back and forth between design iterations and creating toolpaths, with full associativity of the toolpath to the updated design model.”
