NEW FEATURES AND IMPROVEMENTS
•During tool selection, there is now a link in the “Tool Details” section which will direct you to that tool’s Tech Info page on our website. This allows you to check stock and pricing of the tool and find a local distributor to purchase.
•When exporting parameters to a PDF, user name and company name are now auto-populated on the report.
•Improved “Type-Ahead” search technology now allows users to find their tool or material more easily. For example, typing “H45” into the Tool section will bring up all “H45” tools, and typing “1018” into the Materials section will return “AISI 1018 – Plain Carbon Steel”.
Ratings and Reviews
Modern milling data!
Advancements in technology and tools, primarily CAM software, allows me to run parameters just didn't exist 20 years ago. I use this app almost exclusively for high-efficiency milling numbers. The feeds and speeds for modern toolpaths are just so different that you can't guess in the dark the way you could with traditional roughing and finishing. The fact that the app is linked to specific tall part numbers from helical is smart, even though I have had success applying numbers two to tools from competitors.
This App asks for a lot of input parameters which tells me that they're taking many things into account at once.
The Future of Tooling
Helical and Harvey Tool are showing us what the future will look like with this app. It gives you the ability to quickly calculate speeds and feeds for the specific cut you’re doing with your material and the exact tool you’re using. This goes way beyond a “feeds and speeds” chart you might have taped to your wall. The ability to consult the app for your specific application will certainly improve the quality of your cut as well as maximize tool life - this is the future of tooling folks.
Has potential but it’s more or less a sales plot
The app isn’t very user friendly and they ask for more than needed contact info. Also they don’t let you give numerical values for tools you have to enter their part numbers which means it only works with their tools. I like the idea and it’s got potential but overall it’s not that helpful. Also why isn’t steel listed as a material option?
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback. Unlike other speeds and feeds calculators, we integrate the unique geometries of our tools into the calculations. Therefore, because of the specificity of the features of our tools, applying the speeds and feeds to other tools could output sub-optimal results or even cause catastrophic tool failure.
Steel is listed as a material option if you select an end mill optimized for steel. If you select an end mill for aluminum, steel will not display as a material option to prevent users from tool failure.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
