Geometric (Scottsdale, AZ) will showcase its fully automatic CNC programming system CAMWorks® 2011. CAMWorks 2011 automates the CNC programming process, reduces programming time by as much as 90 percent, and allows engineering and manufacturing to use a single common database for both product design and final machining. CAMWorks 2011 introduces VoluMill®, the ultra-high-performance toolpath generator for 2.5- and 3-axis high-speed rough milling. VoluMill can reduce cycle times by more than 80 percent, thereby increasing production by up to 500 percent. In addition, VoluMill establishes and maintains ideal cutting conditions. As a result, cutting tool life is dramatically extended and tooling costs can be reduced by as much as 90 percent. VoluMill also helps avoid costly collisions and greatly extends the life of machine tools.
