CAMWorks to showcase benefits to mold making industry at EuroMold 2010
Mumbai, India, November 03 , 2010: Geometric Limited (BSE: 532312, NSE: GEOMETRIC), a leader in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Global Engineering Services and Offshore Product Development (OPD) solutions and technologies, will demonstrate its intuitive CAM application, CAMWorks® together with its VAR Geovision, in Booth # C20, Hall 8 at EuroMold 2010, from December 1 to 4, 2010 at the Exhibition Fair Ground, Frankfurt, Germany.
As an exhibitor, Geometric will demonstrate how CAMWorks can help companies make their programming of CNC machines more effective, and turn virtual CAD models into reality. During the event, certified CAMWorks technicians will be available to help with any questions, and to demonstrate and discuss the new features and enhancements of the software.
“EuroMold is an important trade show for us and an equally important event for manufacturing companies worldwide. With the release of CAMWorks 2011 shortly after the Euromold, we will provide extended functionality for High-Speed-Cutting and automated creation of Electrodes, which make CAMWorks a perfect fit for the Moldmaking industry”, said Mr. Robert Hutter, Director, Product Sales – Europe.
At the event, Geometric will also give a sneak-preview of the new functions in the to-be-launched CAMWorks version 2011. A number of user interfaces have been modified in CAMWorks 2011, making it easier to learn as well as 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 for CAMWorks, 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 will also introduce VoluMill®, ultra high-performance toolpaths for 2.5 and 3 axis high speed milling. With VoluMill toolpaths, programming and cycle times have reduced to a great extent, and the 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.
EuroMold is the world-wide leading trade fair for moldmaking and tooling, design and application development. The fair is expected to comprise more than 1,500 exhibitors and to draw some 60,000 trade visitors from 45 countries worldwide. The whole process chain "From Design to Prototyping to Series Production" is represented at EuroMold. A unique fair concept closes the gap between industrial designers, product developers, producers, suppliers, and end-users. Additional details about EuroMold 2010 are available at www.euromold.com
