Edgecam Enhances SGS International Clinic

June 25, 2014 -- Edgecam, from Vero Software, supported carbide cutting tool manufacturer SGS at its EU Tool Clinic which was attended by distributors, agents and customers from eight countries.

SGS Internal Technical Manager Barry Ward says: “We used Edgecam strategies at the clinic to complement our range of high performance carbide tooling.”

The software programmed a DMG DMU 50 machine to cut a number of components demonstrating the high efficiency Waveform Roughing Strategy, along with full slotting and drilling. “SGS are focused on providing end users with high performance solutions that rely on the cutting tool, machine tool and CAM strategy,” says Applications Engineer Raymond Bunn.

“Edgecam enhanced our tool clinic considerably by showing tool paths being generated, on-screen simulations and ‘live’ machining demonstrations.”

A total of 18 delegates from Germany, France, Poland, Norway, Turkey, Portugal and Iceland, as well as the UK, attended the two-day clinic to learn more about implementing high performance cutting tools.

The ability to quickly create 3-axis toolpaths using feature-based machining, progressing to 5-axis applications after a period of training, were two essential factors in SGS choosing to utilise Edgecam in this Tool Clinic.

SGS brand names such as Z-Carb, S-Carb, V-Carb and Multi-Carb are used extensively across a range of industries including aerospace, automotive, medical, mould and die and power generation.

Barry Ward says: “Many SGS tools are designed specifically to achieve the highest possible metal removal rates, making them ideal for Edgecam’s Waveform Roughing strategy which utilises faster speed and feed rates with deeper depth of cut.   

“Working with Edgecam and machine tool manufacturer DMG ensures SGS provides an end user solution focused on efficiency and productivity, meeting all their machining needs.”

He says that in the short time SGS have worked with Edgecam they have undertaken multiple demonstrations based on the creation of 3-axis toolpaths and shown machine simulations to support presentations highlighting the benefits of high performance tooling.

Part of the Vero Software Group, Edgecam is a leading CAM solution providing  productivity, reliability and flexibility. Vero has direct offices in the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Japan, USA, Brazil, Netherlands, China, South Korea, Spain and India supplying products to more than 45 countries through its wholly owned subsidiaries and reseller network.
