Taking place at the Kyocera SGS head office in Wokingham on 22 May, the theme of the ‘Lunch & Learn’ event is single operation manufacture and optimisation of complex components. Attendees will be able to hear from industry leaders on the application of new technologies that can deliver significant time savings, improve cutting tool and machine life, and maximise and reduce the costs of manufacturing machined aerospace and automotive components.

At the event CGTech will shine a light on the features and benefits of its Vericut Force Milling module with live software demonstrations and presentations. Force is a physics-based tool-path optimisation module that determines the maximum reliable feed rate for a given cutting condition based on four factors: force on the cutter, spindle power, maximum chip thickness and maximum allowable feed rate. The module calculates the ideal feed rates for the job by analysing tool geometry and parameters, material properties of the stock and cutting tool, detailed cutting edge geometry, and Vericut cut-by-cut contact conditions. Force excels in difficult to machine materials and complex multi-axis cuts, says CGTech.

CGTech Ltd’s managing director Tony Shrewsbury states: “Force is easy to set up and really straightforward to use. After materials have been characterised, they can also be applied to a broad range of cutters and machines in other NC machining operation.”
