Customer is profiling and scalloping the flange on an engine case. Due to the varying cutting conditions, the feedrate must be set to accommodate the worst material condition. The part cycle time is approximately 25 hours.
The customer implemented Caron Engineering’s TMAC system. Using the adaptive control option, TMAC automatically adjusts the feedrate to speed up through air cutting and lighter cuts, and slow down as tools get dull.
With adaptive control, the scallop milling cycle time has been reduced by 60%.
