Seamless integration between SolidWorks and the Radan and Edgecam CAM systems, will feature at SolidWorks World 2012.
Edgecam and Radan will be demonstrating their latest CAD/CAM release 2012 R1 at the exhibition, being held from February 12-15, 2012 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California, USA. The 14th annual SolidWorks World Conference brings together designers, engineers, managers, and partners to discuss ideas, trends, and the technology shaping the future of product design. Along with highlights of the latest release, visitors to booth #335 will see how both CAM systems provide a seamless integration with SolidWorks 3D mechanical design software. This new automation process will maximize efficiency, flexibility and productivity.
Edgecam and Radan both work with SolidWorks as part of an integrated Design-to-Manufacture solution for metal components. This associativity allows users to open native SolidWorks files directly into Edgecam and Radan, eliminating the translation process, improving accuracy with offline programming of CNC machine tools, and allowing the user greater flexibility when design changes are introduced.
Edgecam, a powerful CAM software for solids machining, reads native design files from SolidWorks, ensuring 100% data integrity. Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) retains original design intent and is fully associative to engineering revision changes. Strategy Manager captures your manufacturing intent and when combined with Solid Machinist automatically creates consistent, efficient, tool paths based on your best practice.
Edgecam 2012 R1 introduces Waveform, a new improved roughing strategy that ensures a constant tool load, a smooth toolpath pattern, and offers faster material removal, while improving machine and tool life. Edgecam supports programming of 2x mills, lathes, and complex 3x - 5x machining along with multi axis (single set up) mill and turn/mill machines.
Radan, a leading CAM software for sheet metal fabrication, provides manufacturing (punch, profiling, nesting and bending) and production control (cost estimation, process management) solutions. Radan can process entire assemblies or individual parts without file transfer, automate the programming of CNC Press Brakes, provide vital collision detection and design verification, optimize material utilization and ensure peak machine efficiency. The release of 2012 R1 contains significant enhancements to the popular Tagging function, along with additional functionality for the Nesting module, and even better Unfolding capabilities for press brakes.
Edgecam, a market leading computer aided manufacturing (CAM) system for NC part programming, offers a complete solution for milling, turning and mill-turn programming with unparalleled ease of use and sophisticated toolpath generation.
