iMachining Advantages

Saves 70 % and more in CNC Machining Time

The unique iMachining toolpath, with fully optimized feeds & speeds, keeps the cutter at maximum efficiency and ensures a maximum material removal rate. Exact stock rest material machining and finish cuts eliminate air cutting and unnecessary tool retracts.

Drastically extends Tool Life

With iMachining, the average Tool life increases by 5 times or more. Machining at full depth-of-cut ensures that the entire tool is utilized rather than only the bottom part. Optimum cutting conditions reduce tool wear and increase process stability to avoid uncontrolled tool breakage especially when using small and fragile tools. iMachining eliminates the cost of premium and specialty tooling for hard materials. 

Shortens Programming Time

The Technology-Wizard provides optimal feeds & speeds, and step-over to ensure time-saving first-part success. The much shorter and simpler programming procedure of iMachining results in greatly increased CAM productivity. 

iMachining Technology Wizard

The exclusive, patented Technology Wizard takes out the guesswork by automatically providing all machining parameters. The industry’s first and only TRUE Wizard uses an advanced, patented technology that automatically produces optimized feeds, speeds, depth and width of cuts – all specifically for your CNC machines, your materials and your tools.

The Technology Wizard is the perfect tool for even the most seasoned machinist for getting it perfectly dialed in, the first time – or for the less experienced machinist, iMachining will turn them into an expert in no time.

The “iMachining Level” lets the user choose from 8 levels to automatically adjust for “real-world” fixture, tool holding and CNC machine conditions. The levels make it easy to overcome common challenges with spindle-rigidity, fixture-rigidity and excessive tool deflection. 

Seamless Integration of iMachining in Siemens NX

The proven iMachining technology is now available as an integrated plugin for Siemens NX. CAM users can now insert iMachining 2D and 3D operations directly inside NX CAM, using all NX functionality.
