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.
Coming Soon: Universal, CAM-Independent Cutting Tool Library
Software relying on the ISO standards for cutting tools aims to dramatically simplify tool selection.
Making the Most of Rotary Axes
Shops new to advanced rotary machining are sometimes held back by fundamental misunderstandings.
