First and foremost, thank you to everyone who took the time to attend one of our classes or stop by for lunch. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to have such a successful event.
Wednesday’s class on lights out milling featured 3 industry experts showing off real world case studies and applications to make parts on machining centers with no operators present. Bar feeders have been around a long time and automating lathes is easier – but with new tooling, small foot print pallet changers, and new best practices, mills are ready to be more productive.
Thursday, Kevin Richardson and Doug McPhillips from Mastercam touched on many hot topics, including cloud based tools, dynamic milling, probing capabilities etc. The interaction between attendees and presenters exposed hours of cut time to gain with simple tweaks in programming.
Stay tuned for more classes and events coming soon!
