Geometric to showcase reduction in programming time with CAMWorks® 2011 at EMO 2011
Scottsdale, Arizona, August 25, 2011: Geometric ( www.geometricglobal.com), a leader in developing advanced manufacturing software, announced that it will showcase its fully automatic CNC programming system, CAMWorks® 2011 ( www.camworks.com), at Booth #K16, Hall 25, at EMO Hannover, from September 19 to 24, 2011 at Exhibition Grounds, 30521, Hannover, Germany.
CAMWorks 2011 automates the CNC programming process, reduces the programming time by as much as 90 percent, and allows designing and manufacturing engineers to use a single common database for both product design and final machining.
Fast and intelligent roughing
CAMWorks 2011 introduces VoluMill®, the ultra-high-performance toolpath generator for 2.5 axis and 3 axis high speed rough milling. VoluMill can reduce cycle times by more than 80 percent, thereby increasing production by up to 500 percent. In addition, VoluMill establishes and maintains ideal cutting conditions. As a result, cutting tool life is dramatically extended and tooling costs can be reduced by over 80 percent. VoluMill also helps in avoiding costly collisions and greatly extends the life of machine tools.
Automate manufacturing processes
At the heart of CAMWorks 2011 is the world’s leading Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) software, making it the ideal CAM system for programming components. Using AFR, CAMWorks identifies the areas to be machined, and then uses its proprietary Technology Database (TechDB™) to generate toolpaths automatically. The result is fully automatic 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.
CAMWorks 2011 has been upgraded to find more features, while reducing computation times by more than 50 percent. As part models become increasingly complex, recognizing more features in less time represents huge time savings. The Technology Database (TechDB) that is used to store and apply knowledge based machining information, has been enhanced to simplify the process of creating best machining practices. These features make CAMWorks’ knowledge-based machining capabilities easier to use, and improves the consistency and quality of the programmed parts. In addition, CAMWorks’ associativity accelerates new product development by automatically updating manufacturing models with 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.
