Demonstrating the power of iMachining at MACH, SolidCAM UK will be in hall 17, stand 640. One of the first CAM companies to have a machine on its stand at MACH, it will be using a machine supplied by ROMI again, to show the 70% time savings possible with its CAM software. Particularly effective on hard and difficult to machine materials such as Inconel and titanium, iMachining incorporates a patented Technology Wizard.
This controls the feeds, speeds and stepovers, continually adjusting them to maintain a constant chip thickness and keep the tool in contact with the workpiece.
Gordon Drysdale, Managing Director of SolidCAM UK, said: “The live cutting on our 40m2 stand will demonstrate the speed improvements possible with iMachining. For hard materials, reductions in cutting time can be as much as 90%.”
As well as iMachining, SolidCAM will also be demonstrating its 5-axis and its Mill/Turn software. The Mill/Turn software can support and synchronise an unlimited number of axes, making it possible to easily programme the most complex machines including Swiss type lathes with 14 or more axes, performing clash detection to ensure a safe and efficient toolpath.
SolidCAM operates inside your SolidWorks or Autodesk Inventor CAD system providing a powerful CAD/CAM solution which is fully integrated and quick to learn and is supported by a team of dedicated engineers to ensure that you get the maximum return on your investment and high productivity from your machine tools.
