EDGECAM DEMONSTRATES VERSION 12 AT MIDLANDS MANUFACTURING 2008

1 February 2008: The latest software release of Edgecam’s CNC offline programming technology will be demonstrated on stand H20 at Midlands Manufacturing 2008, which takes place at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry from 18-19 March.

 

Version 12 expands on Edgecam’s 5-axis machining capabilities and delivers improved CAD data management, faster toolpath generation for prismatic and 3D geometry and new options for hole cycle optimisation. Further enhancements offer improved accuracy, increased tool life and greatly reduced CNC file size. In addition, new toolpath control options enable cycle times and air cuts to be minimised.

 

Expanded into both turning and mill/turn environments, Edgecam Strategy Manager allows more processes to be automated, allowing design intent to direct the manufacturing environment. When used in conjunction with Edgecam Part Modeler, surface finish can be employed to control optimum feed, speed and depth of cut.

 

Edgecam Simulator provides state-of-the-art visualisation tools, with the ability to accurately model the machine tool and simulate all movement within the manufacturing process. This is particularly useful with 5-axis machining, where small changes in angular movement may generate significant movement of the cutting tool, increasing the potential for expensive collisions.

 

Edgecam offers core support for the latest CAD products, working with native data from systems such as Solid Edge V20, SolidWorks 2008, Autodesk Inventor 2008 and CATIA V5 R17.  It is equally suitable for programming the simplest or the most complex components and offers full support for the latest CAD, machine tool and tooling technology. Available worldwide, Edgecam is supplied and supported through a network of subsidiaries and specialist resellers.
