CNC Software Inc. has partnered with Kennametal to enable users to import tool assemblies from Novo to Mastercam 2018, saving them time when searching for tools and giving them the ability to build 3D tool assemblies that can be brought directly into the CAM program.

Features such as automated filtering ensure that the selected holders and tools can work together for the job. The program helps ensure correct tooling for the material and machining operation, and the 3D model can also be used for visualization and collision checking. Users can bring in Kennametal tool assemblies, validate them, and save them in the CAM file and tool library.

Toolpath algorithms use the program’s tool definitions to provide safe and efficient motion. In addition, the models imported from Novo help generate accurate in-process stock models that can be leveraged in subsequent operations. These models can help catch programming errors during verification and simulation, before the program gets to the 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.
