Because it works

volumill
1 particular tool path was taking well over 5 hours. When reprogramming with VoluMill I got it down to 48 minutes. So far after reprocessing only 2 parts I have saved 21 hours 51 minutes. I am a big fan of VoluMill and would highly recommend to any.

I had previous experience with volumill in the past. I recently convinced management to invest in the volumill add on for Siemens NX for a 17-4 heat treated application. the software performed flawlessly and reduced the estimated cycle time by 70% management was impressed and the company will reap the rewards for years to come across all platforms of machining.

Volumill has revolutionized our metal removal methods when machining Titanium. We use the Siemens NX with the Volumill plug-in to program difficult to machine materials obtaining higher metal removal rates than traditional Siemens NX cutter paths.  Tool life will be dramatically increased due to the reduced load and heat on the cutter.  The cost of the software can easily be offset by the increase in machining efficiency and the reduction in tooling costs.

Volumill toolpath is the best strategy for roughing compare to any other high speed or high performance toolpaths.

voluturn
We have been using VoluTurn on rotating parts now for about 6 months in Hooksett (over 2 years in non-rotating parts). We have one specific case where it is being used in production on a Ti-17 blisk roughing some small cavities that were normally programmed in a plunge-grooving application. We have seen drastic improvements in the number of inserts consumed during this operation which is helping us move this part more quickly through our process with little to no rework. From a programming perspective, VoluTurn has cut my roughing programming time by half (and that’s being conservative). It has allowed me to be more efficient at what I do while providing good quality operations to the shop floor the very first time. VoluTurn has given us confidence to tackle our toughest parts with ease and I can say confidently that since using VoluTurn in materials such as Rene’88 and Inco 718, we have not broken a single insert as a result of a ‘poor’ toolpath.

Best bang-for-your-buck productivity enhancement that we've seen. It allows us to significantly boost material removal rates while simultaneously making more effective use of our cutting tools, with no modification to our existing equipment.
