The cycle time saving for thread machining is 20 – 50% and depends on the operating conditions.
The reduction can be determined by simply changing the CNC program. To do this, reduce the spindle speed by a ratio of 4.412 and increase the feed per revolution. (refer to Kinematics) linked
- Measure current thread cycle time
- Measure thread cycle time without tool / component with modified program
- Increase spindle speed to 2000 rpm (max. Speedsynchro spindle speed = 8824 rpm on threading tool) and record cycle tim
- Calculate the savings per component with the ROI calculator
Here is an example of the graphic representation of the cycle time saving for the machining of 15 M6 threads with synchronous and Speedsynchro Modular programming.
