Helps designers cut programming time by 90 percent
Scottsdale, Arizona, March 31, 2011: Geometric (www.geometricglobal.com), a leader in developingadvanced manufacturing software, announced that it will showcase its fully automatic CNC programmingsystem CAMWorks® 2011 (www.camworks.com), at Booth #1212, at Houstex 2011, from 18 to 20 April,2011 in Houston, TX.
CAMWorks 2011 automates the CNC programming process, reduces programming time by as much as 90percent, and allows design and manufacturing engineers to use a single common database for bothproduct design and final machining.
Fast and intelligent roughing
CAMWorks2011 introduces VoluMill®, the ultra-highperformancetoolpath generator for 2.5 axis and 3 axishigh speed rough milling. VoluMill can reduce cycletimes by more than 80 percent, thereby increasingproduction by up to 500 percent. In addition, VoluMill®allows you to establish and maintain ideal cuttingconditions. As a result, cutting tool life is dramaticallyextended and tooling costs can be reduced by over 80percent. VoluMill also helps avoid costly collisions andgreatly extends the life of machine tools.
Strike oil at Houstex
At the heart of CAMWorks 2011 is the world’s leading Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) software,making it the ideal CAM system for programming oil tool components, as well as other industrial andcommercial families of parts. Using AFR, CAMWorks identifies the areas to be machined, and then usesits proprietary Technology Database (TechDB™) to generate toolpaths automatically. The result is fullyautomatic programming of families of parts, automatic programming of similar features on new parts,and the ability to incorporate manufacturing information directly into the solid model..
Something good gets even better
CAMWorks®2011 has been upgraded to find more features, while reducing computation times by morethan 50 percent. As part models become increasingly complex, recognizing more features in less timerepresents huge time savings. The Technology Database (TechDB™), that is used to store and applyknowledge based machining information, has been enhanced to simplify the process of creating bestmachining practices. These features make CAMWorks’ knowledge-based machining capabilities easier touse, and improves the consistency and quality of the programmed parts. In addition, CAMWorksassociativity accelerates new product development by automatically updating manufacturing modelsGeometric Technologies(A division of Geometric Americas, Inc.)15974 N. 77th Street # 103,Scottsdale, AZ85260-1790Scottsdale,AZ85260-17902with design changes..
For the mold and die industry, Geometric has introduced ElectrodeWorks™, an optional electrode design solution that automates the entire process of calculation and design of EDM electrodes including design, management, documentation, and manufacturing. It is seamlessly integrated with SolidWorks/ CAMWorks Solids assuring complete parametric association of data..
CAMWorks® was the first SolidWorks Gold Partner to provide a fully integrated CAM solution. CAMWorks can run within SolidWorks or as part of a cost effective stand-alone CAD/CAM package that includes CAMWorks Solids, an integrated solid modeler.
Houstex is a manufacturing event showcasing leading metalworking machinery and vital enabling technologies. This year the event is held at George R Brown Convention Centre in Houston TX.
