Powerful Feature Recognition from Edgecam 2010 R2

The latest release of Edgecam, Planit’s market leading CAM software for the production engineering industry, delivers enhanced feature recognition for efficient and flexible manufacturing.

 

May 19, 2010 - The feature finder in Edgecam 2010 R2 has been enhanced to complement developments to angled head machining. It enables users to identify and machine hole features within components, providing greater flexibility in the way they manufacture their components.

An additional enhancement to the feature finder operation offers complete manufacturing flexibility. It enables a user to choose whether they would like to rough and finish features individually or complete the roughing operation for all features and subsequently finish them. This provides the ability to reduce machining times by completing operations in the most efficient way.

Edgecam’s hole feature finder has also been enhanced, with the ability to define specific hole attributes that can be named and stored for later use. When combined with Edgecam’s knowledge based manufacturing solution, Strategy Manager, users can automatically apply specific manufacturing processes where the defined hole feature is present. Users can utilize the “feature teacher” to define features that can be machined with special purpose tools or where there is a common hole feature that is typically used across a number of components. Whatever the hole feature, this new enhancement provides significant improvement to hole machining productivity.
