Geometric to introduce CAMWorks® 2011 at IMTS
Scottsdale, Arizona, August 17, 2010: Geometric ( www.geometricglobal.com), a leader in developing advanced manufacturing software, announced that it will preview CAMWorks® 2011 ( www.camworks.com), the upcoming version of its solid-based CNC programming solution, at Booth #3830 at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS 2010),Chicago, IL from September 13-18, 2010.
CAMWorks 2011 provides significant new capabilities, including improved knowledge-based machining information, a new electrode design solution for the mold and die industry, smarter tool paths. In this version, the technologies that enable automation of NC programming have also been enhanced.
For example, Feature Recognition, which is used to automatically identify areas to be machined, has been upgraded to find more features, while decreasing computation times by more than 50% over previous CAMWorks versions. As part models become increasingly complex, recognizing more features in less time represents huge time savings for the NC programmer. The proprietary Technology Database (TechDB™), used to store and apply knowledge based machining information has been enhanced to simplify the process of creating best machining practices. The improved interaction will result in greater use of the knowledge-based machining capabilities of CAMWorks and will reduce potential errors in machining information.
A number of user interfaces have been modified, making it easier to learn and use the software, while at the same time minimize overlapping into the graphics area. Similar changes as these will be expanded in future versions.
For the mold and die industry, Geometric will introduce ElectrodeWorks, an electrode design solution that automates all aspects of extraction, design, management, documentation, and manufacturing of EDM electrodes. This new product will guide the user through the electrode design and production process. Electrodes are designed through a comprehensive yet easy to use interface.
CAMWorks 2011 also introduces VoluMill®, ultra high-performance toolpaths for 2 and 3 axis high speed milling. With VoluMill toolpaths, programming and cycle times have reduced to a great extent, and cutting tool life has significantly increased, all the while, placing less stress on the machine tool. Cycle times have been observed to be reduced by up to 80% and cutting tool life has seen increases up to 500%. These benefits are made possible by utilizing the full capabilities of modern milling machines.
In this latest version, CAMWorks introduces more intelligence into machining operations and toolpaths so that changes to machining parameters minimize regeneration time. This is increasingly valuable to large 3-axis toolpaths. User ground turn inserts can now be used to generate finishing toolpaths in turning. This allows even greater flexibility in generating more efficient toolpaths.
CAMWorks is an intuitive solids-based CAM solution that helps manufacturers increase productivity and profitability through best-in-class technologies and adaptable automation tools that maximize machining efficiencies. It is simple to use and eliminates the drudgery of CNC programming with Intelligent Machining through automation.
