The parameters are based on calculations performed by the company's engineers for preci- sion and optimization. Users enter the tool number, select the material from over 300 available material grades, choose the tool path, and select the machine spindle and holder. The maximum spindle speed and feed rate can be included and the workholding security can be adjusted (from loose to rigid) for further customization. Finally, users can adjust parameters to refine recommendations. A tool graphic helps determine radial and axial depths of cut. Speeds and feed rates can also be adjusted via dials to optimize tool life, production and deflection. The desktop version is available now and gives users the ability to work offline, so it can be accessed any- where. The company plans to release mobile apps for iOS and Android soon and add Harvey Tool end mills to the program before the end of 2018. | Harvey Tool Co. LLC | 800-645-5609
