Successful test cuts were carried out at Iscar Turkey’s main offices in Gebze, running SolidCAM’s new Imachining technology with Iscar tooling.

Serkan Erkinci, Product Manager of Iscar Turkey decided to carry out the tests after he had seen a video of the new system in action.

According to Iscar, setting up Imachining was very easy with the Intelligent Technology Wizard.

The older Makino machine at Iscar Turkey was not as fast as the Hermle C20U, used in the original video seen by Serkan Erkinci, so it was unable to achieve the same high speed.

However, running at its maximum speed with Imachining toolpaths it still had plenty of reserve in gentle optimised movement, ensuring the tool load was low and constant.

Despite the limitations of the Makino, Iscar Turkey was impressed with the performance and capabilities of Imachining.

According to Iscar, the Imachining chips were very homogenous, demonstrating good, constant conditions for the tool for its entire cut.

SolidCAM is already widely used by Iscar Turkey for its tooling projects.

Reducing machining times for its customers is an important part of its business and SolidCAM provides the software to help it achieve its goals.

Following the successful cutting trials at Iscar, Imachining is poised to make big inroads into the Turkish market and help machinists across the country gain significant productivity improvements.
