This is a sales presentation meant for potential customers. The presentation is intended to be modified to fit a situation.
So we had 3 typical tool path problems all solved by iMachining’s intelligent tool path automatically, controlled step over, exact stock machining, and smooth tangent tool path. The results are a simplified user experience while increasing efficiency. The tools and machines will be much happier with iMachining, allowing for greater material removal rates and increased profitability.
Let’s take a look at two features only found in iMachining: we will look at morphing spirals and separation channels.
iMachining’s technology wizard solves these typical problems with speeds and feeds and provides users with simple fast results. Optimal speeds and feeds can be calculated using all the factors available. Let’s look at 3 ways the technology wizard achieves it’s results: Material and Machine database, synchronization all parameters, and seamless integration.
SolidCAM UK spent 3 days proving iMachining with Iscar UK and it proved a successful and painless exercise (see results and files on ftp site). Customer Gardner Aerospace were invited to view the results cutting titanium and they were very pleased at the outcome. The timings are not available yet for all the parts (Iscar to produce a time report on savings), but on on one specific pocket their existing toolpath generated by Catia was taking 14 minutes, with iMachining it took 3.5 minutes!!.

The best CAD/CAM integrated solution Gaining Productivity in manufacturing with SolidWorks + SolidCAM Get Your Job Done Faster Design Seamless Integration Manufacturing Improve the quality across the entire process chain Improve the Quality of Your Design Improve the Quality of Your Toolpaths
Design service or Manufacturer? => Design Service =>Manufacturer CAD CAM Product If you are a manufacturing company, you have to optimize your productivity across the entire process!!
Seamless CAD/CAM Integration Single-window integration – Same CAD/CAM user interface => Easy-to-learn and Easy-to-use SolidCAM works directly on the SolidWorks parts and assemblies. Additional information like dimensions & tolerances are also available => No data translation => No conversion errors => No missing data Support import of all standard formats (and more!) => Very important for CAM users who receive models from other CAD systems
SolidCAM is the most associativeCAM for SolidWorks SolidCAM, totally integrated inside SolidWorks, provides both types of associativity: Toolpath associativity. Related-components (fixtures, molds…) associativity. Changes to any part automatically update all toolpaths Changes to any part automatically update all related components SolidCAM provides user-control over the extent of the associativity
