Milan: To show Surfware’s High Speed Machining using patented TrueMill Milling technology at EMO, Messrs. Eggert and Kushner will machine Titanium 6AL4V at a rate of 2.93mpm with a 12mm dia. end mill at 25.4mm depth of cut to remove material at the rate of 70.10 cubic/cm with no tool wear or heat. They will also machine Aluminum 6061 and Prehardened Tool Steel, TOOLOX 44 (45HRC) at even greater speeds and feeds.
Just over the Alps from Milan is Empfingen, south of Stuttgart and home to Surfware’s Dealer of the Year for 2008, Erwin Eggert of 3D Concepts. Throughout the six-day Milan trade show, Mr. Eggert and Surfware’s Gordon Kushner will run live metal cutting demonstrations on a HAAS CNC VF-2SS Milling Machine.
TrueMill accomplishes this by managing the cutting tool's engagement with the material which also ends chatter and extends tool life. TrueMill turns even the oldest CNC equipment into a high speed machining center.
Known over 20 years for its reasonably-priced, high-end, 2-through-5-axis CNC programming systems, Surfware’s current version of SURFCAM Velocity® 4 SP1 gives even more control over 4 and 5 axis swarf cutting, axial cutting, retract motions and imported geometry.
Surfware will also be demonstrating the up and coming release of SURFCAM "V5" with new enhancements and improvements such as improved TrueMill functionality, Lathe and Mill/Turn Enhancements, Additional 5-Axis functionality and Multiple Tool Rest-Roughing, just to name a few.
