Consolidating CAM Software Cuts Programming Time

At Trillium Machine Inc., there’s no room for thinking within the comfy confines of “the box,” working in the “comfort zone,” or refusing to try the untried. 


A Big Move to Small-Parts Manufacturing

By using GibbsCAM software, Progressive Tool was able to change from large- to small-part manufacturing and produce more accurate parts with tighter tolerances.


CNC Programming Software Maximizes Five-Axis Capability

By incorporating new CNC programming software to make full use of its new five-axis machining capabilities, Bob Lewis Machine Co. has reduced setups and programming time.


Five-Axis CAD/CAM Lends a Hand to Prosthetics Manufacturing

By using a five-axis machine and a complementary five-axis release of Visi 20 CAD/CAM software from Vero, one manufacturer reduced setups and established more cost-effective production runs for complex prosthetic components.


Native CAD Files Improve Pump Manufacturer’s Productivity

Implementing an integrated CAM package helped a pump manufacturer improve fixture design, offer single setup manufacturing processes and better communications and submissions to third-party vendors.


VBA Macros Ease CAM Program Creation

Taking advantage of the open architecture of Esprit CAM software to write Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macros simplifies CNC programming at this manufacturer of automotive presses.


Exceeding Expectations with Multitask Machining

Implementing a multitasking machine with new CAM software enabled setup and production time reductions for the shop. One part even went from a setup time of 6 hours to 5 minutes.


Shop Thrives on Evolving CAM Capabilities

High speed, turn-mill and “hybrid” tool paths that combine functionality are among the Mastercam CAM software features that help keep this shop competitive.


Inconel Meets Match in General-Purpose End Mill

This difficult Inconel application demonstrates that even some basic tool designs can perform admirably when paired with the right tool paths.


Custom CAM Add-ins Automate Threading

The ability to create custom add-ins using the Esprit CAM system’s API and Microsoft’s Visual Basic has significantly reduced thread programming times at this manufacturer of oil and gas industry components.
