CAM Software Increases Cutter Life, Reduces Spotting Time
IMTS 2018: CGS North America Inc. sells and supports Cam-Tool and CG Camtool for SolidWorks.
CGS North America Inc. sells and supports Cam-Tool and CG Camtool for SolidWorks. Cam-Tool has been designed for the Mold and Die industry. Its tools are suitable for Die and Mold applications. CGS’s surface-based CAM calculation engine produces accurate NC data and makes the software useful in high accuracy 3D machining. The benefits of accurate NC code include increased cutter life and improved surface finish and accuracy. These result in reduced spotting time.
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.
The many rules of programming CNC cutter radius compensation can make machining problems difficult to diagnose and correct.
The right way to program curves? A solution to yesterday's problems? The truth is probably somewhere in between.
