CGS North America releases an updated version of CAM-TOOL, V15.1, the CAD/CAM system corresponding to the five-axis machining center for molds and dies. In this version, a five-axis conversion algorithm significantly decreases the occurrence of inefficient interference avoidance, or warning exit by interference, by automatically calculating un-interfered, fixed-tilt angles on simultaneous five-axis automatic conversion function (simultaneous five-axis auto). Simultaneous five-axis auto ensures high-quality finished surfaces with easy operations by heightening machining accuracy by minimizing sudden interference avoidance actions and the number of axes that move at the same time. Users can create high-precision and high-efficiency, five-axis machining data optimized with this algorithm by choosing an angle value that indicates interference avoidance.
