Toyoda to Host Aerospace Machining Lunch & Learn with Iscar, Mastercam
The event will include educational seminars and machine demonstrations.
Toyoda is hosting the Aerospace Industry Solutions Lunch & Learn December 8, 2016, at its Placentia, California, Tech Center along with tooling manufacturer Iscar (Arlington, Texas) and CAD/CAM software developer CNC Software Inc. (Tolland, Connecticut), maker of Mastercam. The event will focus on machining processes for strong and lightweight materials that accommodate the standards in making efficient and economical aerospace components. Members of the three companies will be on site running live machining demonstrations and leading seminar sessions.
The seminars include:
- Iscar Tool Advisor. In this seminar, members of Iscar will talk about the Iscar Tool Advisor (ITS) software, which enables users to select the most effective tool for the job by sifting through factors such as cutting conditions, machine power, metal removal rate and cutting.
- Mastercam Dynamic Motion Tool Paths. In this seminar, members of CNC Software Inc. will present this software feature’s capacity for extending tool and equipment life through efficient machining strategies such as smoother motion and fewer toolpath reversals.

An introduction to CFRP
Choose cutters, depths and tool paths with attention to particular steps in the process, and you can machine titanium more efficiently than you might suspect. Boeing offers practical tips.
Optimizing a camshaft lobe grinding cycle has traditionally been based less on science and more on educated guesswork and numerous test grinds. Now, computer thermal modeling software can predict areas where lobe burning is likely to occur, in order to determine the fastest possible work speed that won't thermally damage lobes and greatly reduce the number of requisite test grinds.
