Waterjet CAD/CAM Software Streamlines Cutting Path Process
Flow International offers FlowXpert 2015, the latest version of its FlowXpert 3D CAD/CAM software featuring faster programming for waterjet applications. The platform expands on the company’s 2D FlowMaster software and includes design functionality powered by SpaceClaim, an integrated 3D modeling tool with flow sequencer. The integrated CAD/CAM capabilities streamlines the pathing process, adding flexibility for users performing waterjet cutting, resulting in faster programming.
The company also offers its Mach 3 waterjet system combining motion control, high-pressure components and pump into a single compact machine.
Direct numerical control (DNC) should solve problems, not create them. If you under-stand how DNC works and follow the tips presented in this article, you can maximize its benefits and avoid headaches with your system. Part One of a two-part series.
