Optimizing B Axis on Gang Tool-Based Swiss Machines

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


CAM Considerations for Plunge Roughing

Plunge roughing is often more complicated than it appears. Here’s how one CAM program addresses some common challenges associated with this technique.


Creating Machine-Specific Tool Paths

A new CAM capability takes a snapshot of an individual machine’s performance characteristics and uses the information to tailor an optimized tool path for that specific machine.


Validating CAD Translation Accuracy Prior to Machining

An add-on to Verisurf or Mastercam, this product quickly compares translated CAD models to an OEM’s authority models to determine translation accuracy.


Shop Gains Process Control with Automation

Eliminating variability from the manufacturing flow is a goal for most shops. Automation can allow reallocation of resources to accomplish this.


Keeping Watch on Small Parts

From watch parts to exotic medical applications, this shop takes on the world of micromachining.


Targeted Five-Axis Machining

Focusing on a particular part size range allows this shop to use a versatile type of five-axis machine tool. Five-axis machining now makes up 40 percent of the shop’s business.


A Virtual Jog Mode for CAM

This CAM feature allows tool paths to be defined through a process that resembles jogging the machine manually.


How Micromachining Patience Speeds Prototype Production

A molder of tiny, silicone components for the medical industry explains how a patient, conservative approach to micromachining enables it to deliver prototypes faster.


CAM Benefits Extend Beyond the Tool Path

This CAM software not only provides an effective tool path strategy, but also takes application-specific variables into account when applying that strategy.
