Maximize Cutter Life with Advanced Optimization Software
Webinar - November 4, 2020 at 11am PDT/2pm EDT
Mounting pressure to make parts better, faster, and more affordable is an ongoing challenge in the manufacturing industry. In order to gain a competitive advantage, many companies seek optimization strategies to reduce machining times and get parts to market faster. Advanced optimization software, such as VERICUT Force, not only reduces machining times by 25% or more, it also drastically reduces cutting tool costs by increasing tool life up to 2x or more.
Force helps to extend tool life by using the manufacturer’s recommended cutting parameters to optimize NC programs by keeping chip thickness maximized & constant. At the same time, Force limits feedrates, forces and deflection to ensure that your cutting tools are safely utilized to their full potential within any given cut.
This combination of faster AND safer cutting increases the useful life of your tools substantially, reducing tool costs, and the costs associated with machine downtime and tool replacement.
In this webinar, you will learn how to:
- Utilize VERICUT Force to extend tool life and reduce machining times
- Import tool models, including their technology data, into Force for easier programming and faster optimization
- Use Force charts to compare pre and post-optimized chip thickness, total force, radial/axial forces, feedrates and more
- Calculate how much you can save with Force
- Apply best practices for better surface finish, predictability and quality
