Minimize tooling costs

Eliminate chatter vibrations to prevent wear and save on tooling costs. Produce quality parts with optimal surface finish and dimensional accuracy.

In partnership with

Expert machining

Using Artificial Intelligence (AI), we have transformed years of research into an optimized milling software service for all regardless of the scale of operation or expertise. We are creating a future where every manufacturer and machine operator can elevate quality, productivity, and sustainability.

What are the benefits on offer ?

Optimizing your toolpaths with Productive Machines can lead to

  • Time, material and money all saved by reducing trial and error on your machine tool
  • Lower production cycle times and increased productivity
  • Extended tool life
  • Improved surface quality
  • Improved dimensional quality
  • Reduced need for post-manufacture inspections
How does Productive Machines compare to other solutions ?
  • Our unique stability map is able to identify and eliminate chatter vibrations on the whole toolpath before they cause any issues
  • Intuitive Software as a Service (SaaS), no need to train your engineers to use complex software;
  • Simple subscription service, no need for large capital investment
What problems does chatter cause ?
  • Lower surface finish and dimensional accuracy
  • Increased tool wear and cutting tool costs
  • Increased maintenance costs on machine tool
  • Increased noise level coming from the process
  • Increased waste of material
How can we identify if we have chatter vibrations?
  • Aside from chatter marks in your workpiece and low tool life you may also notice increased noise levels during a process with chatter
  • Machine tends to vibrate close to its natural frequencies in addition to the frequency of chip removal
What CAM programs can you work with?
  • Currently our solutions works best with Siemens NX but we are developing APIs to help us work better with other CAM programs
  • Some of our web apps don’t require a toolpath to optimize
