The company has added 22 five-axis machining strategies to the existing functionalities of both Esprit SolidMill and SolidMillTurn FreeForm CAM software packages. These simultaneous five-axis machining cycles are available for both milling and turn-mill machines.
The FreeForm 5-axis composite machining cycle allows users to independently define the machining patterns and tool orientation strategies to be used when creating the simultaneous five-axis tool paths. It includes 20 different machining strategies (cycles) in one, resulting in a range of easily manageable possibilities. The Esprit composite machining cycle enables users to perform simultaneous five-axis machining for a variety of different parts and industries, including aerospace, medical and automotive, through one simple user interface.
