Sometimes people ask me: "I tried your calculator, and i liked it, but it seems to me a little too aggressive...do you actually do any testing?"
Well, to those I say that not only i do testing, but i run production jobs 100% calculated with my own HSMAdvisor.
Many machinists say that nothing beats an experienced operator holding his hand on feed hold button and playing with speed and feed override trying to find the "sweet spot" where cutting speed and feed rate are maximized and chatter is eliminated or reduced.
And it is correct, but not any machinist is experienced or actually knows what he is doing. Many machinists also finish their apprenticeship program and never learn a single thing about new tooling types and materials since. They bag years of experience, but their knowledge is stuck on a level it was when they first got their license.
Also not a single person can possibly know cutting conditions for hundreds of materials and remember all of the jobs he had ever ran.
This is where tool database comes in.
Not only can you save tools to cut down and in many cases eliminate entering parameters for every calculation. But you can (and should) save cutting data for each particular case.
A single tool entry can contain an unlimited number of cuts attached to it, so machinist never has to remember everything.
Here is a i made video of slotting D2 with variable helix hi-performace endmill.
As you know the long-awaited standalone version of FSWizard is being prepared for the release right now.
I am changing the name it is going to be marketed under.
Down the line The product is going to consist of many modules. And in order to give it a name that would encompass a wide variety of tools under one umbrella it has been decided to change the name of the solution to HSMAdvisor
A new website is being constructed right now around new product
It is going to be located at HSMAdvisor.com
But we are not forgetting where we came from.
FSWizard is becomming one module inside HSMAdvisor solution. So you will still see FSWiz name popping up here and there.
Also as i said earlyer and robably against better judgement i will keep HSMAdvisor(FSWizard):Online Calulator you have come to love and depend on free for everyone to use.
