A Primer for Working with 3D Engineering Data

Automation takes many forms in the metalworking shop and one of them is incorporating 3D engineering data into the production process.


Mastercam Software is Driven with PMPA Member Needs in Mind

Mastercam, developed by CNC Software Inc., is the most widely used CAD/CAM software in the world.


Consistent Tool Engagement in Five Axes

This tool path applies the consistent-tool-engagement-angle strategy that previously has been only available for two- and three-axis operations to four- and five-axis simultaneous movements.


Simplifying CAD/CAM Programming

Manufacturing has come a long way since the introduction of CAD/CAM software.


Savings from Sustainability

A project aimed at energy-efficient machining delivered production efficiencies, too.


CAM to Conversational to CAM

Despite having turning centers with conversational controls, this gear manufacturer has benefited from going back to CAM as its primary method of programming those machines.


Consistency Is Key to Titanium

An important part of this shop’s successful approach to titanium machining is a toolpath strategy that keeps the load on the cutter constant. Another important element is the way this shop captures and reapplies what it learns about how effective it...


Beyond Parts from Prints

Domaille Engineering applies design for manufacturability (DFM) principles to both its own product line and the contract work it performs for others. For the latter, DFM enables it to provide customers with much more than accurately machined parts.


Software Simplifies Turn-Mill Operations

An international player in the highly competitive aeronautics, automotive, defense and optical industries makes the most of software for multitasking program verification and optimization.


Optimizing B Axis on Gang Tool-Based Swiss Machines

This technological innovation has been increasing in popularity as well as multitasking sophistication.
