Harvey Performance Co. announces the release of Machining Advisor Pro (MAP), a tool designed to quickly, seamlessly and accurately deliver recommended running parameters to machinists using Helical Solutions endmills. This web-based tool works within the capability of a machinists’ machine, tool and setup to offer tailored, specific speeds and feed parameters.

MAP is the new and improved version of the Helical Milling Advisor. In style, simplicity, and ease of access, MAP delivers what the previous tool lacked. Harvey Performance Co. engineers have worked for several months to develop a better product – a unique tool that the machining industry could fully rely on.

“This type of tool has the potential to change our customers’ way of life,” said Harvey Performance Company Senior Vice President of Sales Jerry Gleisner. “Our first goal has long been to make our customers more profitable. Feeling confident in your machining parameters, and getting those parameters quickly, is paramount for shop success.”

  • feed


    Rate of change of position of the tool as a whole, relative to the workpiece while cutting.

  • gang cutting ( milling)

    gang cutting ( milling)

    Machining with several cutters mounted on a single arbor, generally for simultaneous cutting.

  • milling


    Machining operation in which metal or other material is removed by applying power to a rotating cutter. In vertical milling, the cutting tool is mounted vertically on the spindle. In horizontal milling, the cutting tool is mounted horizontally, either directly on the spindle or on an arbor. Horizontal milling is further broken down into conventional milling, where the cutter rotates opposite the direction of feed, or “up” into the workpiece; and climb milling, where the cutter rotates in the direction of feed, or “down” into the workpiece. Milling operations include plane or surface milling, endmilling, facemilling, angle milling, form milling and profiling.
