Mastercam Adds Support for Kyocera SGS Precision Tools
Mastercam users can now download 10 libraries of SGS tools in a native Mastercam format, providing fast, seamless access to SGS’s cutting tools.
CNC Software has partnered with Kyocera SGS Precision Tools to provide tool libraries for Mastercam CAD/CAM software. Mastercam users can now download 10 specialty tool libraries of SGS tools in a native Mastercam format, providing fast, seamless access to SGS’s round, solid, carbide cutting tools.
With this collaboration, Mastercam users can download both inch and metric SGS round solid carbide cutting tool libraries from the Mastercam Tech Exchange. The native Mastercam 3D tool databases are fully compatible with Mastercam 2020 and subsequent releases. These offer the latest SGS product introductions, including the company’s Z-Carb HPR roughing line and H-Carb end mills for dynamic milling. The native libraries include more than 12,000 tools, including ferrous and non-ferrous cutting tools like end mills, routers, micro-tools, drills, reamers and countersinks. The partnership will also provide Mastercam users with tool data, which they can use when programming new jobs.
