In addition to a host of other new features, with EdgeCAM 9.5, Pathtrace are pleased to announce support for Sandvik Coromant’s patented Wiper insert for turning. Compared to turning with a standard insert, turning operations with a Wiper insert can either improve the finish operations by a factor of two, or can hold finish constant while cutting at approximately twice the feed rate. With Sandvik Wiper geometries built into the software, the user can simply select the wiper insert catalogue number and generate toolpaths that automatically take into account the insert’s geometric profile.
