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.
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 machiing 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.
the graphics area. Similar changes as these will be expanded in future versions.
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.
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.
minimizeregeneration 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.
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.
