Mastercam's Dynamic Machining is said to create a constantly adapting toolpath that delivers more-consistent cutting conditions and allows use of the entire tool flute length, often eliminating the need for multiple depth cuts. This reduces cutting time and increases tool life, the company says.
The software also offers flexible retract options to keep the tool down in smaller parts and retract rapidly on larger parts. In addition, the custom “micro lift” option will retract the tool slightly off the bottom when moving to the next cut. This decreases the amount of heat generated in the part and also enhances chip evacuation.
Highly efficient entry methods along with customizable entry speeds and feeds enable flexibility, regardless of the material or cutter style being used. The software’s specialized motion can be used with both “closed” and “open” parts.
