Reduce wasted hours and save machine cycle time

 

Every motion made by CNC machines adds seconds to cycle time. Even rapid motions can take up unnecessary time if configured incorrectly. While one second here, two seconds there, doesn’t seem like much, over a period of e.g. 1000 cycles it adds up to 16 minutes spent in unnecessary motion.
 
To reduce cycle time, aim to reduce the number of motions. These predominantly take the form of tool changes. Depending on the motion distance required, if you reduce the number of tool changes you can potentially save hours of cycle time.
 
iCNC can help you evaluate your machining processes to reduce cycle time. Talk to one of our Machine Technicians to find out more.
