Edgecam is a complete CAM software solution for solids manufacturing
Production Milling - Edgecam provides the production machine shop with a wide range of flexible milling cycles. Machining efficiency is maximized on simple and complex prismatic parts as well as those incorporating sculptured surface geometry. With Edgecam you get prismatic machining combined with powerful 3D solid and surface machining strategies, all in one complete solution.
4- and 5- Axis simultaneous machining - Edgecam 4 and 5-Axis milling products are designed to meet the production machining requirements of industries such as aerospace, automotive, medical and oil & gas. 4- and 5-Axis simultaneous machining offers key advantages over conventional indexed 3-Axis machining:
The ability to machine complex parts from solid that would previously have to be cast. This approach is highly beneficial for prototypes and small volume runs and is particular applicable with the latest Mill/Turn machines.
Edgecam Turning provides functionality for a wide range of machine tools, including 2-axis lathes, multi-turret configurations, sub-spindle turning centers and mill/turn machines. On a mill/turn machine, C-, Y- and B-axis milling and drilling take place within the same program as the turning to provide a fully integrated and associative programming solution.
Ease of use and an understanding that cycle times are critical, especially on multi-configuration mill/turn machines, underpin the development of Edgecam’s turning functionality.
Edgecam produces advanced rough and finish turning cycles, together with support for facing, boring and drilling in either canned cycle or longhand format. Toolpath calculation takes into consideration the complete tooling insert and previously machined material to avoid gouging and eliminate air cutting.
Edgecam offers support for Sandvik Coromant Wiper inserts for turning tools, allowing these productivity enhancing inserts to be used reliably in all aspects of production machining.
Edgecam includes an easy-to-use multi-axis turning module for programming sub-spindle lathes. As with multi-turret machine configurations, cycle time and the ability to turn a part completely in one operation are of paramount importance when working with sub-spindle lathes.
When machining a family of parts, it is often more convenient to produce a standard model and to input dimensional details for a spreadsheet or a list of variables. EdgeCAM is capable of importing data directly from a spreadsheet or variable list and use this data to make instant changes to the model and the machining strategy. EdgeCAM macro language can offer increased productivity: - Contains all standard logical functions - Macro file can drive EdgeCAM automatically and unmanned - Easy to learn, no specialist knowledge is required - Users can define their own machining operations and dialogs and them them to the standard user interface Macro Language - PCI - Enables you to build your own knowledge base - Macro based language - Automates repetitive tasks - Grouping of standard routines - Create by recording actions

EdgeCAM Part Modeler provides users with a modeling tool specifically for simple part construction, manufacturing modifications, and fixture building. Features include: • 2D and 3D drafting • Display modes: Wire frame, Shaded, Hidden Line and Hidden Line Removed • Isometric, Plan and Orthogonal Views • Standard and Ordinate Dimensioning • Geometric Tolerance • IGES Import and Export • STL Export • Printing and Plotting
EdgeCAM Simulator is a state-of-the-art tool that simulates and verifies the toolpath against the solid model. EdgeCAM offers full machine simulation capability, complete machine tools may be accurately modelled and their movement shown throughout the machining process. The simulation gives a realistic representation of the machining process, any collisions are clearly displayed on screen and reported to the user. This allows the user to prove out programs off-line and move into production faster.
