Installation & Licensing

I am getting an Error when trying to install your software
I can't launch your software after installing it
CutPRO/ShopPRO cannot find the licensing key after undocking the laptop.
Error Hl202: An Error occurred while verifying your ShopPro/CutPro License.
My trial key AB99 stopped working before the end of my trial

Stability Lobes

Sometimes, the stability lobes do not match with cutting tests. The stability pocket with the high depth of cut chatters, while the speed at the lowest depth of cut does not. Why?
How can we obtain an ASCII text file for the stability lobes?
What are the steps in predicting the stability lobes?
What is the use of time domain simulation of stability lobes.
Multiple analytical stability lobes.
In the construction domains of stability, frequency starting at 800 rev / min. How to be the processing of Titanium, if we work at the speed of 800 rev / min.
The stability lobes don't match at high speeds.

Frequency Response (FRF)

Measurement of Flexible End Mills.
Database design to avoid repetative tap testing.
At what point can you decide whether the coherence of your tap test is insufficient in order to create good stability lobes. Does it depend from which frequency the signal starts to drop or drops completely? And what to do when there's no way to get a better coherence?
Measurement of Slender End Mills with small diameters.

Difficult to Cut Materials

Problems in low speed milling of steel, Titanium and hard materials.
How can we increase the productivity in low speed milling of Titanium, Inconel, and Stainless Steel alloys?
High speed milling of Titanium alloys.

Soft Materials

High Speed milling of Aluminium


Dimensional and Surface Location Errors in CUTPRO.
What is the influence of work material on the chatter?
With regard to tool geometry in some cases we have tools with different helix angle or serrated and continuous flutes and other variations which are not given has input to the software. So whether these parameters have any effect and if they have any effect on machine stability how are they incorporated into the software?
Since the measurements with an accelerometer and hammer are obtained without any machining process (without tool touching the workpiece), the effects of the workpiece setup and workpiece holder on machine dynamics are not measured. If they have any effect, then how it can be incorporated into the stability lobe calculation?
The use of small diameter end mills in CutPRO and ShopPRO
Milling thin walls and webs.
How do you select impact hammers and accelerometers?
Can someone give me the procedure on how to check if your spindle is worn or not.
