What are the benefits to manufacturers?
제조업체는 치열한 경쟁에 끊임없이 도전하고 있으며 짧은 기간내에 비용을 절감하고 고품질 부품을 생산할 수있는 새로운 방법을 찾고 있습니다.
The benefits of the ProfitMilling cycle are a reduction in machine-tool cycle times, increased tool life, decreased programing time, reduced energy consumption and significant productivity improvements - even with light and medium-duty machine tools. Test results have shown that ProfitMilling typically reduces cycle time by 75% compared to a traditional concentric roughing strategy.
프로핏 밀링은 은 어떻게 작업을 합니까?
ProfitMilling is a high-speed roughing cycle that allows you to take a significantly deeper cut of the tool and increase the cutting feed. Rather than controlling just one parameter, ProfitMilling monitors several vital cutting and machine characteristics.
The ProfitMilling toolpath manages chip load and side-cutter force in the calculation of toolpath while keeping the engagement angle and material removal rate within a specific range.
It also incorporates dynamic feedrate changes throughout the toolpath and takes advantage of toolpath optimization for specific machine capabilities.
How to Program Using ProfitMilling?
Double or triple tool-manufacture recommended feed, speed and surface speed in MMPT or IPT. Adjust to specific tool wear / performance needs.
For steel, titanium and other hard metals, use a radial engagement between 27 - 37 degrees. For softer materials, use a radial engagement just under 90 degrees. Most parts can be cut a depth of two times the tool diameter.
Whenever possible, use tools with a high flute count. Coolant is generally discouraged, as its use can increase thermal shock on the cutting edge. The ProfitMilling toolpath puts most of the generated heat into the chip and away from the part and tool. High pressure air may be helpful, as it aids in chip evacuation.
Check your machine's control settings. The geometry "look-ahead" or corner-control setting may adversely affect cycle times. Ensure that the requested feedrates are being obtained.
