    Practical test of run time calculation

    Everything must fit together

    Whether adaptive roughing is appropriate for a part depends primarily on the geometry. This machining type is best suited to parts with deep cavities.  
    Very important: Technology parameters like cutting data must be optimally matched to the part, the material, the machine and the tools used. Only then can the best possible result be achieved. 

    In our practical test, we compare various machining types for the example of two parts. 

    Example 1: Part with many deep cavities

    Tool Pokolm D16 HPC cutter
    Machine DMG HSC105 linear
    Material Steel
    Strategy Adaptive
    Cutting data

    ae: 1.6 mm

    ap: 30 mm

    vc: 175 m/min

    fz: 0.3 mm

     

    Adaptive machining is more than 60 percent faster
    than concentric roughing.

    Example 2: Complex part with flat and steep areas

    Tool Pokolm Spinworx D52 R6 Pokolm D16 HPC cutter
    Machine DMG HSC105 linear DMG HSC105 linear
    Material Steel Steel
    Strategy Concentric Adaptive
    Cutting data

    ae: 36 mm

    ap: 0.9 mm

    vc: 215 m/min

    fz: 0.7 mm

    ae: 1.6 mm

    ap: 30 mm

    vc: 175 m/min

    fz: 0.3 mm

     

    Combined machining is 22 percent faster
    than strictly adaptive roughing.
