Supercharge CNC Program Optimization by Leveraging Verification Software

May 12, 2021 |

CGTech will discuss CNC program optimization and how you can leverage software to achieve optimum overall performance while saving both time and money.

Optimization is a generic term used to describe lots of things. At face value, the term "optimal" is usually interpreted as meaning the "best" or "most favorable" way to achieve or do something. But when it comes to CNC programming, optimization can literally put money in your pocket. It can help you create parts that are nicer-looking and more precise. It can minimize wear and tear on your machine tool and on your tooling. It can maximize machine availability. It can give you a leg up on your competition. In this presentation, CGTech will discuss CNC program optimization and how you can leverage software to achieve optimum overall performance while saving both time and money.

Agenda:

  • Common optimization strategies and the value of optimizing NC program feed rates
  • The importance of maintaining true constant chip thickness
  • How verification software can produce superior optimization based on comprehensive cutting analysis
