Plan to attend The IMTS 2018 Conferences to gain deeper insights into new manufacturing technologies and ideas!
About the topic
To stay competitive in the global marketplace, manufacturing companies must create parts as quickly and efficiently as possible, and at more competitive costs. For machined parts, achieving the shortest cutting time is often related to feed rates, but that is only one of many factors. High-efficiency machining – choosing the optimal machining methods, while maximizing cutting tool and machine tool performance – are the real goals for modern day manufacturing. Additive Manufacturing (AM) is also now a viable manufacturing option, but where and how does it fit best? This presentation will provide an overview of how software can help determine optimal part manufacturing strategies, and automatically optimize NC program feed rates. It will also discuss strategies for optimization, with special focus on techniques best suited for different material classes, and machining processes.
