Celeritive Technologies, Inc., developers of VoluMill™, announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued US Patent 8,295,972, covering key innovations of the VoluMill™ Ultra High Performance Toolpath technology.
"Our latest patent covers several of the key features of the VoluMill technology, including its ability to connect safely between cuts at high speeds, where traditional toolpaths are forced to slow significantly -- often to the point of a full stop -- and produce dramatic spikes in tool load," said Glenn Coleman, Celeritive's chief product officer. "This patent issuance confirms the uniqueness of our technology and clarifies the benefits of VoluMill, the preeminent high-performance milling solution on the market today."
VoluMill has consistently shown itself to be an easy, quick, and cost effective way for manufacturers to reduce costs, shorten delivery times and increase productivity. Adopted by large and small organizations around the world and across all industries, VoluMill's patented technology generates toolpaths that produce a consistent material removal rate. Their smooth, flowing motion establishes and maintains ideal milling conditions in any part shape. Reduced forces on the spindle and cutting tool enable machining hardware to be safely utilized to its full capabilities. Uniform chip formation and excellent heat dissipation result in the previously unachievable combination of dramatically reduced cycle times and significantly extended cutting-tool life.
