Video illustration of the Esprit 2013 new "ProfitMilling" feature applied here in open pockets milling with a 1/2" diameter high performance carbide end mill 4 flutes cutting 2.5XD length of cut at 560 SFM 0.0023 IPT using the "Production Milling" software package.
Work piece is A36 steel HR 200 Bhn held in Kurt vise with aluminum jaws machined to suite.

DP Technology press release: "Experience better CAM programming with ProfitMilling, a smart and efficient toolpath that puts greater profit in your pocket. New to ESPRIT 2013, the patent-pending ProfitMilling strategy for 2-, 3- and 5-axis roughing cycles allows customers to remove more material in a shorter period of time. Using highly advanced technology, the ProfitMilling strategy optimizes engagement angle, chip load, material removal rate (MRR), lateral cutter force and machine acceleration to achieve optimal results. This innovative machining cycle represents the "best of both worlds" by utilizing trochoidal tool motion and a traditional offset of the toolpath, allowing usage of the full tool flute length. "Our tests have shown that ProfitMilling typically reduces cycle time by 70 percent, minimizes programming time, reduces energy consumption, and increases tool life by an average of 500 percent," said ESPRIT Product Manager Kenyon Whetsell. "We've seen the most dramatic benefits in using the ProfitMilling strategies with light to medium-duty machine tools." Trochoidal tool motion pattern has been improved in ESPRIT 2013 to take you even faster through your cuts. Improvements include an optimized trochoidal strategy to reduce cycle time and additional tool lifts during transitional moves to reduce tool drag."
