At EMO in Hall D, Booth 33175, CNC Software, Inc. will support German Mastercam Reseller InterCAM. Featured will be the latest Mastercam release, Mastercam X7, which introduces many significant new capabilities, including the new Mill-Turn product, Renishaw Probing and much more.

Mastercam’s Mill-Turn product makes machining on today’s high-powered turning centers and full-function machining centers simpler and easier than ever before, the company notes. Mastercam Mill-Turn streamlines the programming process with intelligent job setups that are keyed to the exact machine in your shop. Intelligent work plane selection makes it easy to select the proper spindle and turret, and program your part with Mastercam’s proven milling and lathe toolpaths.

Mastercam X7 integrates Renishaw’s Productivity+™ for in-process gauging. This uses a measuring probe on a machine tool to determine fixture offsets, orientation, and critical dimensions. Probing eliminates the need for tool presetters, expensive fixtures, and manual settings with dial indicators, according to the company. It allows for machine offsets to be automatically adjusted, even during the machining process, to further enhance the manufacturing process.

The Lathe Dynamic Rough toolpath is designed for hard materials cut with button inserts. The dynamic motion allows the toolpath to cut gradually, remain engaged in the material more effectively, and uses more of the surface on your insert, extending tool life and increasing the cutting speed.
