The program will now calculate the manufacturing time based on the material speeds and feeds from the Costimator database.
1. Enter "Length" of the manifold block.
2. Enter the "Width" of the block.
3. Enter the "Thickness" of the block.
4. Enter the "Cutout Area(s)".
If there are any. These are areas like pockets and shoulders.
5. Enter the "Cutout Depth".
If you entered data in number 4 above for "Cutout Areas".
6. Enter "Holes Finish Dia".
If there are holes in the part.
7. Enter the "Depth" for the holes.
8. Enter the "Quantity" of holes.
9. Select "Tap Holes?" thread size.
If there are any threaded holes in the part. The metric tap equivalent is only available for up to a 1.00 imperial tap. Also, the metric taps are the approximate size of the imperial. If the user wants to be exact using metric data than he needs to use a model built exactly around metric taps only.
This model calculates based on the nearest imperial tap data.
10. Enter the "Tap Hole Depth".
If there are threaded holes.
11. Enter the "Number of Tap Holes".
12. Select "SAE Ports? Number".
If there are port holes in the block.
13. Enter the "Number of Ports".
If there are port holes.
