MAL Manufacturing Automation Laboratories Inc. develops and markets the most advanced machining process simulation and process optimization software in the world
The mission of MAL Inc. is to provide the most advanced science-based yet industry friendly machining process simulation and optimization software in the world. We also provide strong and prompt technical support with continuously updated technology, which is backed up by our world class research laboratory.
Our Areas of Expertise
Measurements of machine tool dynamic stiffness
Optimization of feeds/speeds/depths of cut for a given machine/cutter/work material
Before we used CutPro we had a lot of problems with defining reliable and economical feeds & speeds, especially for tool assemblies with a large protruding length (> 5× Dc).
MAL provided us a greater understanding and more comprehensive knowledge of machining dynamics.
By using CutPro we are…
I recently attended the Advanced Machining Course hosted at the University of British Columbia with MAL. Their staff is very technical with advanced machining processes and have helped me better understand the machining process. Besides this, they offer a great software package to optimize and enhance…
At Sandvik Coromant we use the software CutPro as a powerful tool for analyzing new world leading designs of cutting tools. CutPro is commonly used in our work shops to ensure that tools run at good cutting conditions and that different designs of cutting tools are compared under equal conditions.
Before we used CutPro to eliminate chatter vibrations, hearing protection was not enough to get operators to setup the parts at the loading station next to the machine. After we optimized the programs, the operators do not need hearing protection anymore, and at the same time the cycle time was reduced…
"MAL set up an accelerometer on the part and attached it via USB to a laptop to chart vibration frequency. On the very first set of taps, they recommended we run at 17,000 RPM, and that did the trick. We got rid of the chatter, increased the feed rate, and eliminated the finishing pass. Within minutes…
Dr. Giacomo Bianchi – ITIA National Research Council, Italy
Italian Research Center, MUSP and Spindle Manufacturer Capellini used CutPro and SpindlePro to design high performance and high speed electro-spindle for aerospace industry.
You can read the magazine article (Italian) reporting to the work here.
It takes lots of time to meet the customers' needs when they ask special material or parts machining. After we use CutPro to find the sweet point of machining, it eliminates the chatter vibration and reduces our try-error time. The CutPro really makes money for us.
You can see the illustration…
ANDREY SAVILOV, PROFESSOR – Irkutsk State Technical University, Russia
We use CutPro to increase productivity of machining in different areas, especially in aerospace industry. Using CutPro you can get benefits even if you have machine tools with low power spindles and low stiffness.
Next field where we apply MAL software is the cutter design. We can estimate cutting…
Oliver Tsai – Royal Precision Tools Corporation, Taiwan
Royal Precision Spindle Manufacturer from Taiwan used CutPro and SpindlePro for the design, performance analysis and dynamic accuracy matching of their spindles.
"We use the CutPro and SpindlePro to predict and design the cutting performance of our spindles. It provides very useful technology…
