iMachining vs. Volumill.

CAMWorks VoluMill is ideal for complex 3-D shapes and prismatic parts as its algorithms result in more intelligent toolpaths to machine pockets, slots, and arbitrary shapes. VoluMill is well suited for machining soft as well as hard materials that are hard to chip, such as titanium, nickel-based alloys or stainless steel. The result is increased efficiency and utilization of machines, tools, labor and materials.

The high-performance roughing module, which is fully integrated in CAMWorks, combines optimal milling paths and maximum material removal with minimized machining times. VoluMill’s unique approach to high speed material removal allows the programmer to determine the optimum material removal rate for any combination of part geometry, material, machine, and cutting tool. Material is removed in the most effective way possible. Consequently, machines run smoothly and tools run cooler.

  1. Reduce your Cycle Times up to 80%
  2. Reduce your programming times up to 50%
  3. Increase your Cutting Tool Life up to 500%

SolidCAM iMachining is an intelligent High Speed Machining CAM software, designed to produce fast and safe CNC programs to machine mechanical parts. The word fast here means significantly faster than traditional machining at its best. The word safe here means without the risk of breaking tools or subjecting the machine to excessive wear, whilst increasing tool life.

To achieve these goals, iMachining uses advanced, patented algorithms to generate smooth tangent tool paths, coupled with matching conditions, that together keep the mechanical and thermal load on the tool constant, whilst cutting thin chips at high cutting speeds and deeper than standard cuts (up to 4 times diameter).
