- iMachining – with its unique patented “morphing spirals”, intelligent island separation and moating, achieves the shortest cycle times in any industry - in any material, on any machine.
- The cutting angle constantly adjusts between a minimum and a maximum value, while the feed is dynamically adjusted to ensure constant mechanical and thermal load on the tool - providing you with the longest tool life at the highest Material Removal Rate (MRR) possible.
- Since spirals have higher MRR than Trochoidal tool paths, iMachining utilizes various, patented strategies that enable it to use spirals much more often than Trochoidals.
- iMachining automatically reduces vibrations to prevent excessive tool wear and also decreases the likelihood of forming temporary thin walls that often lead to costly tool damage.
- Using advanced rest material knowledge, iMachining maintains the highest level of cutting tool engagement by avoiding “air-cuts” and repositioning moves.
- The iMachining Technology Wizard provides automatic, optimal feed and speed values for different materials and CNC machines to ensure “first-cut” success.
The Power of iMachining right
inside NX – a great Synergy !
We have freed up a lot of production capacity, have significantly increased our productivity, and reduced tool costs by more than half. The investment has more than paid for itself. For us, iMachining is definitely a quantum leap.
We use iMachining with nearly all our products – from 2.5D-, 3D- up to indexial 5- Axis Machining. From today‘s point of view, it is a no-go to work without it.
