Five-Axis CAM Module Reduces Cycle Time

 The five-axis module of GibbsCAM 2009 software is said to reduce set-ups and overall machining time. In addition to the overall improvements, the module includes enhancements to the postprocessors that extend support to drive virtually all five-axis machines with rotary heads, the company says. General machining capabilities of the five-axis module include multi-surface five-axis roughing and finishing; multi-surface, five-axis flow-line machining; surface-edge five-axis swarf cutting; an adaptable interface based upon part-type strategy; advanced gouge checking to ensure safe cuts in complex operations; complete control of entry, exit, cut-to-cut and between-cut motion; and five-axis depth cuts machining; and more.
