At first, my staff and i were skeptical……..
In 2006, SolidCAM software developers had a goal to calculate the most efficient high-speed machining pocketing toolpath. They decided that the only practical way was to have the cutting conditions automatically determined by the software.
Information given by textbooks and manufacturer’s catalogs is insufficient as they only recommended cutting speed for the material. Users still needed to decide on Depth, Chip thickness and Feeds.
Today, iMachining is a complete solution including Roughing, Rest and Finish.
