ITAMCO offers Apps for Machinists

October 28, 2014 - Indiana Technology and Manufacturing Companies (ITAMCO) released three new bundled apps: CNC Machinist, Practical Machinist and Ultimate Machinist. These app bundles contain ITAMCO’s most popular apps and are offered at reduced prices through the Apple App Store.

CNC Machinist
The CNC Machinist App Bundle has four apps that will help users build a CNC program and the settings to send to a CNC machine tool, including:

  • Feed Rate Calculator – calculates feed rate and speeds
  • Grid Pattern Support – gives X and Y positions for a grid pattern program
  • Bolt Hole Circle Calculator – calculates coordinates of a bolt hole circle based on the number of holes and X, Y coordinates
  • DNC – the first iOS DNC settings app for CNC machine tool controls. DNC settings for multiple machine controls and types including, but not limited to, Fanuc, Siemens, Mazak, Okuma, Haas, and many more. Also includes FTP (file transfer protocol) client server for part programs for CNC controls such as Fanuc.

The price of the CNC Machinist App Bundle is $1.99. (Individual apps are $1.00 each.)

Practical Machinist
These four apps cover the basic tasks for the machinist, including:

  • Feed Rate Calculator – calculates feed rate and speeds
  • Drill Tap - calculates different size drills, taps, bolts, screws, and nuts
  • Metal Weight Calculator – calculates weights of different types of metals in various shapes
  • Measure Threads – measures threads with wire and calculates the best wire size

The price of the Practical Machinist App Bundle is $1.99. (Individual apps are $1.00 each.)

Ultimate Machinist
The Ultimate Machinist contains the 10 apps that every machinist needs, including:

  • Feed Rate Calculator – calculates feed rate and speeds
  • Drill Tap - calculates different size drills, taps, bolts, screws, and nuts
  • Metal Weight Calculator – calculates weights of different types of metals in various shapes
  • Measure Threads – measures threads with wire and calculates the best wire size
  • Bolt Hole Circle Calculator – calculates coordinates of a bolt hole circle based on the number of holes and X, Y coordinates
  • Ball Nose Calculator - calculates step-over and depth of cut for a ball nose end mill
  • Sine Bar Calculator - calculates the gage block stack, 1st angle, and/or 2nd angle given the sine bar size and one of the other variables
  • Drill Point Calculator - calculates drill point depth and countersink depth or angles
  • Thermal Expansion Calculator - calculates changes in dimensions or thermal expansion coefficient of a substance related to its thermodynamic property when heated, and expanding or contracting when cooled
  • Surface Finish Calculator - converts values between speed, corner radius, and surface finish value

The price of the Ultimate Machinist App Bundle is $4.99. (Individual apps are $1.00 each.)

The apps require iOS6.1 and can be purchased through the Apple App Store in iTunes. They are compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

A 250,000 App Download Milestone for ITAMCO
ITAMCO isn’t a newcomer to app development. The company is currently releasing a new app every two weeks and has released over 65 apps for iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry mobile devices since 2009. The development team recently celebrated 250,000 downloads in 155 countries. Joel Neidig, an engineer at Indiana Gear (a division of ITAMCO) is the lead developer in a team of three. The development team is uniquely qualified—all three have shop floor experience and are software developers. “We’re committed to building our applications on platforms that bring a user-friendly experience to our customers at an affordable price,” said Mr. Neidig. “We started developing apps because we needed tools on our shop floor that we couldn’t find in the marketplace,” he added.
