Milltronics VM3018IL vertical machining center features a ChipBoss productivity program that enables the use of the latest trochoidal machining strategies, previously only in CAM systems or high-end controls. The program uses algorithms to calculate toolpaths and control cutter engagement. According to the company, it uses the whole length of a tool rather than just the tip, cutting profiles at depth rather than taking multiple depth passes.

This optional software works by automatically controlling the tool’s chip load, keeping it constant and creating the optimal chip. This is said to result in faster cycle times, better tool life and accurate parts. Cycle times are reduced by as much as 50 percent over previously conversational programs with as much as 3-5x better tool life. This software also improves part accuracy through reduction in tool deflection, according to the company.
