CGTech to Present Feed Rate Optimization Strategies at amerimold

April 1, 2013 - (Irvine, California) – CGTech (booth 326), the developer of VERICUT CNC simulation software, will be presenting feed rate optimization strategies at amerimold 2013. The presentation will demonstrate the difference between high speed machining vs. high-efficiency machining.
Some think of high speed machining as simply running a CNC machine at maximum feed rates and taking multiple shallow passes. However, this strategy is often less efficient than taking fewer passes at slightly greater depths. Achieving the shortest cutting time is related to feed rates, but that is only one of many factors. High-efficiency machining -- cutting a part in the least amount of time -- is the real goal. Cutting at a greater depth is often more efficient, but the cutter may encounter an overloaded condition causing breakage or exceeding the horsepower on the machine. The key to achieving high-efficiency machining is to vary the feed rates to achieve the desired result for each cutting condition encountered. The presentation will provide an overview of the steps required to achieve the benefits of high-efficiency machining by utilizing software to automatically optimize NC program feed rates.
