ToolRoom RN34 is the latest generation of ANCA’s software package designed for making cutting tools in the aerospace, die/mold, general machining and power generation industries. 

According to Software Product Manager Thomson Mathew, the software enables users to design complex tool geometries for improved tool life, productivity and cutting volume. “The constant helix ballnose option, for example, is replaced by a graphical drag-and-drop designer,” he says. The software can switch from 2D projection of the cutting edge to 3D, easing the optimization of irregular helix curves to reduce vibration. 

ToolRoom supports both manufacturing and regrinding applications.

    This CNC capability is helping make machine tools move far faster, and more accurately, than ever before. Here's how it works.

  • Programming A Robot The Way You Program A CNC Machine Tool

    Programming a robot with the same CAM software used for a multi-axis machine tool makes it unnecessary to “teach” the robot by jogging it manually from point to point and recording these point-to-point moves as the robot’s motion commands. Robotmaster is a software package that provides this CAD/CAM-based, off-line programming for robots. It runs fully integrated inside Mastercam CAM software for CNC machine tools.
