This is a calculator package for common calculations required in a typical machine shop.
The Machinist calculator can quickly solve common machine shop trigonometry and math problems at a very affordable price. A machinist or a CNC programmer has to often consult reference handbooks to calculate hole positions, chamfers, sine bar stacks, dovetail measurements, bolt circles, etc. Drill charts, speed and feed tables, thread wire charts and similar references may have to be looked up. Using this calculator, all the reference information as well as calculation resources are at your fingertips. While this software is Windows compatible, versions are available for Android, Apple iOS and BlackBerry, etc. The apps versions you could start with one group and then additional groups could be purchased as you need additional group of calculations. In app purchase is possible. By using a simple, visual interface, MC makes everyday calculations fast and hassle free.
The calculations possible are grouped into a set of calculations in a particular domain. For example, the groups that are available include machining calculations, right angle and oblique trigonometry, bolt circle, surface finish, key seats, polygons, grid patterns, measure threads, dove tail, taper and chord geometry. Speeds and feeds, RPM to surface speed, drill point and countersink depth, drill size conversion charts, tapping drill charts for UN and ISO metric, cutting and cold form (roll) taps are functions available. Once the software is up and running you have to choose the particular group of calculations you need and get the job done very simply. This is a very good tool that is very handy in a machine shop.
