Partnership Gives Access to Imco Tool Data in Mastercam
With the partnership in place, users of Mastercam 2019 and up now have access to milling tool data from Imco.
CNC Software Inc., developers of Mastercam, the world’s leading CAD/CAM software, has announced a new partnership with Imco Carbide Tool. Mastercam users now gain access to Imco’s milling tools as a native Mastercam tool database for Mastercam 2019 and beyond. Mastercam users can download these tool libraries from the Mastercam Tech Exchange.
Stas Mylek, CNC Software’s partnership program manager, says, “We are excited to offer their Pow-R-Path (HEM) and High Performance milling tool lines in a native Mastercam tool library format for download. This will give users easy and seamless access to the latest high-performance milling tools that Imco has to offer.”
Matt Osburn, Imco’s vice president, echoes Mr. Mylek: “We’re excited to team up with Mastercam. This partnership will enable more users to import Imco cutting tools directly into their projects.”
Creating threaded holes in titanium alloys calls for proper techniques based on an understanding of both the properties of these materials and the peculiarities of the tapping process.
