SolidCAM for mold machining at Euromold 2013

November 25, 2013 - SolidCAM will be exhibiting at Euromold 2013, the leading event for moldmaking and tooling, design and application development. From December 03-06, the fair will be held at Frankfurt/Main Exhibition Center. SolidCAM will exhibit in hall 8, booth J134. This year is Euromold’s 20th year, which provides an ideal opportunity for SolidCAM, the leader in SolidWorks integrated CAM, to present its latest and greatest contributions to machining in the moldmaking industry.

Moldmaking is a competitive industry and its main challenge is short delivery times. In this industry it is necessary to combine excellent toolpath quality with optimal performance.  SolidCAM has a powerful CAM solution for any factory in the moldmaking industry. In SolidCAM’s latest version, there have been major enhancements in its revolutionary iMachining 3D, HSM and Simultaneous 5 Axis modules, that provide a winning combination for mold and insert machining.

iMachining 3D automatically produces a complete, ready to run CNC program. It generates optimal cutting conditions to rough, rest rough and semi-finish a complete 3D part, with True Scallop on all slopes, all in a single operation. The tool path is automatically adjusted to avoid collisions between the holder and the updated stock at every stage.  The optimal cutting conditions are achieved with iMachining’s expert knowledge based Technology Wizard.

iMachining 3D provides amazing 3D machining results, regularly providing 70% savings in machining time, often reaching up to 90%, compared to other CAM systems.

SolidCAM's HSM module provides the optimum 3D finish toolpath for any mold or insert part. The result of HSM is an efficient and smooth toolpath, translating to the best possible surface quality.

HSM avoids sharp angles in tool path, ensuring that the tool stays in contact with part as much as possible. It also optimizes non-machining moves to reduce air cutting and generate smooth and tangential lead in/out trajectories.

SolidCAM users will benefit from advances in the company’s Simultaneous 5 Axis strategies - the most tested and proven 5-axis CNC milling toolpaths in the industry. These include highly advanced control over all aspects of toolpath and collision checking, combined with a very friendly user interface.

The latest enhancements in SolidCAM’s Simultaneous 5 Axis modules include multi-axis drill, Contour 5 Axis and enhancement to the Convert HSM to Sim 5 Axis strategy. In Contour 5 axis, the tool follows the selected 3D curve, staying parallel to predefined tilting lines. This is ideal for chamfering and pencil machining of complex contours with undercuts.    

Many mold shops are introducing simultaneous 5-axis machines. SolidCAM’s Convert HSM to Sim 5 axis strategy makes programming easy as it enables conversion of 3D HSM toolpath to full 5-axis toolpaths. Moving to 5-axis machining results in better surface quality by using different tool tilting strategies and short tools.
