Simultaneous Five-Axis Conversion Process Decreases Unnecessary Movements
CGS North America releases version 15.1 of its CAM-Tool software.
CGS North America releases version 15.1 of its CAM-Tool software. The latest release includes updates to the simultaneous five-axis conversion (auto) process to decrease unnecessary movements. It generates five-axis tool paths systematically and gives a smooth surface finish by minimizing the movement of the rotation axis. The software’s component point rearrangement is implemented to achieve the smoothest movement of the machine tool to obtain optimal surface finish. It arranges component points at equal intervals. 3D Offset Cutting and Curve Control Along Surface modes support barrel and lens cutter. G01 Cross Hole Drilling controls the feed rate on the cross section of holes, recognizing the crossing section of previous processes and changes the feed rates. This speeds up deep hole drilling by reducing the feed rate only at the crossing section.
Strategies for designing an effective cooling system with less time and effort.
This machine tool diagnostic device allows the detection of errors noticeable only while machine tools are in motion.
Mold cooling is the single most important factor in terms of mold productivity. Mold cooling improvements will influence cycle time and part quality - both of which will directly impact profitability.
