Missler Software has launched version 7.12 of its TopSolid’Cam CAD/CAM software. The software offers features aimed at reducing production times and features several improvements over previous versions. Barrel cutter tool paths facilitate efficient programming. The Dynamic Machining module for turning and milling is said to reduce cycle times, extend tool life and lessen machining malfunction. Improved algorithms enable users to spend less time in the modeling phase. The software also provides the ability to machine a group of parts in a single program.

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

    Finally there is an alternative to ballnose endmills for finishing 3D parts. The combination of finishing tools shaped to provide more cutting surface and a CAM system with the ability to apply them on a five-axis machining center can dramatically reduce finishing cycle times while delivering better surface finishes.

    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.
