(Camarillo, CA) offers SURFCAM Velocity 4 with the following features: • 3-Axis Machining: New 3-Axis HSM strategies feature smooth and fluid toolpaths that ensure superior surface finish while accommodating maximum cutting speeds, which dramatically shorten the machining cycle. Machining strategies feature faster processing, multi-processor support, automatic arc filtering, optimized retracts and adaptive stepdown. Among the newly implemented HSM operations are rest machining, steep/shallow, Offset Pencil and 3-D Offset. • 4/5-Axis Machining: Multi-Axis has been elevated to a new level with newly implemented gouge avoidance strategies that allow users to specify up to four separate check surface groups; individual gouge avoidance strategies can be applied to each successive group. New lead-in and lead-out moves accurately control the tool motion when approaching or leaving the machined part.
