CAM Software Integrates ISO 13399 Tool Library

CNC Software has integrated Sandvik Coromant’s Adveon Tool Library with its Mastercam software for programming milling and turning machining.

CNC Software has integrated Sandvik Coromant’s Adveon Tool Library with its Mastercam software for programming milling and turning machining. The software uses Dynamic Motion technology and is said to reduce cycle times and increase tool life. According to CNC Software, Adveon will help Mastercam users to further improve machining productivity and security as well as save time during machine setup by reducing engineer input.

Adveon’s standardized methodology is designed to facilitate quick and safe CAM programming, enabling users to develop their own tool library/database, select tools for production, oversee and maintain the assortment, build tool assemblies quickly and safely, see immediate results in 2D and 3D models, and export to Mastercam Tool Manager.

The open catalog area can reduce time spent on finding and defining cutting tools as well as eliminate the need to search for information in catalogs or interpret data from one system to another. This in turn helps the manufacturer gain rapid access to the required cutting tool information in order to source the most suitable machining solution paired with the most efficient cutting tool selection. With Adveon, users can select the tools used in their daily operations, maintain and amend the assortment and create their own tool libraries by copying and pasting from the catalog area. Virtual tools can be assembled quickly and securely before exporting them into Mastercam.

The tool library software works with any tooling supplier that bases its catalog on ISO 13399, thus assuring the accuracy of geometrical information.
