TRUEMill is quantum leap in CAM toolpath technology. A TRUEMill toolpath controls the tool’s engagement in the material being cut to maximize the material removal rate (MRR). TRUEMill allows a cut that is both faster and deeper than any other 2 & 3 axis roughing toolpath on the market today. TRUEMill’s effectiveness and speed is especially evident in difficult or exotic materials such as titanium, inconel and hard steels. TRUEMill’s superior toolpath is not dependant on the geometry to be milled, so no guesswork is required to see which pocketing routine is best. TRUEMill toolpaths have proven to increase material removal rates by up to 10 X and increase tool life anywhere from 30% to 100% while at the same time decreasing cycle times and reducing the stress on CNC machines.
