Productivity gains highlighted at WNT milling strategy days

WNT hosted two days of ‘milling strategy days’ in conjunction with Open Mind and XYZ Machine Tools, where delegates were introduced to the significant benefits delivered by the combination of cutting tool, software and machine technology.

Following on from similar events held at the AMRC in Sheffield, the WNT milling strategy days focus on the cycle time savings that can be achieved using its 3D Finish series of circular segment cutters, when used with Open Mind’s hyperMILL MAXX CADCAM software and the latest in five-axis machine tool technology as provided by the XYZ UMC-5X machine.

The seminars consisted of a presentation on the cutters, software and machine before delegates got face-to-face with the live demonstration.

The part being machined in the demonstration was representative of components found across industry and inevitably machined on five-axis machining centres, such as the XYZ UMC-5X.

Additional days will be hosted at the end of February in Blackburn and anyone interesting in attending can register their interest by e-mailing
