Dynamic Motion Technology – Part 3
Dynamic Motion Technology Paybacks
#3: Program Faster:
Dynamic Motion technology users report that they are creating part programs for roughing faster. What used to take hours can frequently be accomplished in minutes.
What Dynamic Users Are Reporting
LH Carbide (Fort Wayne, Indiana): a world-class manufacturer of progressive dies for making electric motor rotor and stator cores, is keeping pace with rapidly growing orders by using Mastercam’s Dynamic Motion technology to get more done with fewer people and at higher levels of quality. Tom Neuenschwander, Vice President – Technology & IP, for L.H. Industries Corporation said, “Until the last few years, if we could complete the detail parts for a die in a week or a week and a half, we would be doing well. Recently, there have been times when we have produced two or three dies in a single week. Our customers have very tight delivery expectations and we are finding ways to give them what they need.”
At LH Carbide Dynamic Motion technology is used to optimize manufacturing of components used in progressive dies. The toolpaths use minimal stepovers and deep stepdowns while the cutting program automatically adjusts feeds and speeds to avoid burying the tool.
