EDGECAM seamlessly integrates 4 and 5 axis simultaneous machining within its milling and mill/turn environment to allow a range of multiaxis cutting strategies to be applied to the most complex tooling or components.
Edgecam Milling provides functionality to program wire frame geometry or solid model component parts on a variety of machine tool configurations, from 2.5 Axis milling to complex surface tool paths on 3 to 5 axis milling machines.
Face Milling, Roughing, Profiling, Hole Cycles, Thread Milling, Chamfering, Slot Milling are some of the standard operations available and recognise the active stock.
In process stock. Rest material removal. Easy operation interface. Total tool path control. Intuitive, easy-to-use graphical user interface. Ideal for the rotary machining of automotive and aerospace components.
- EASY OPERATION 100%
- TOTAL CONTROL 100%
- INTUITIVE 100%
Angle Heads. Probing. Tool Libraries. Shop Floor Documentation. Wide range of advanced options providing complete control of the tool. 5 axis modules include full machine simulation to aid visualization of the machining process.
Edgecam offers intuitive dialogues making programming simple for the new user and comprehensive tool path control for advanced requirements.
Tool paths can be controlled using the current stock which ensures tool path approach is secure and eliminates fresh air cutting. The stock can originate from automatically created stock or from a forging or casting model produced in CAD.
Creates a series of straight cuts on a horizontal plane. Face milling will recognise the boundary shape and remove air cuts where applicable, links moves for change in cut direction can be controlled to give smooth transition producing and even flow tool path which is kinder to the machine tool and cutter engagement.
Edgecam includes all the standard drilling, tapping and rigid tapping routines with canned cycle and sub routine output. Back boring is also available where conventional machining cannot be achieved on the part. When using solid models the hole size, thread data, depths etc is extracted and the necessary tooling suggested from the tool libraries.
Has a variety of tool path control and methods, from lace, concentric, spiral and the wave form tool path. Edgecam produces the required tool path and tool entry into the material. Shape recognition allows sub routines to be applied with a simple check box. Edgecam will recognise the change in geometry walls and create sub routines as appropriate.
Thread milling is a popular technique when machining threaded holes on larger components, especially in the oil and gas, power generation and other heavy industries. Edgecam’s thread milling cycle will automatically suggest entry points, and lead in lead out paths. Single pass or mutli-pass helical move tool paths can be output.
