Milling

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.

EDGECAM offers intuitive dialogues making programming simple for the new user and comprehensive tool path control for advanced requirements.

Features at a glance:

– In process stock
– Rest material removal
– Easy operation interface
– Total tool path control
– Angle Heads
– Probing
– Tool Libraries
– Shop Floor Documentation

The ability to use Solid models and the design data from all the major CAD system maintaining associative links allows quick and efficient programming, especially when a Design modification is made. Edgecam will inform the user of model updates and show what the changes are and where tool paths need to be corrected. A simple update of the tool paths is all that is required rather than a reprogram of the part. Tombstone and multi part fixture is supported, along with extended datum shifts.

Edgecam offers ease of use operational programming with intuitive dialogues making programming simple for the new user and comprehensive tool path control for the more advanced requirements. Edgecam offers range of milling commands for the production engineer which can be used on both milling machines with W axis and Quills plus lathes with driven tools with . Face Milling, Roughing, Profiling, Hole Cycles, Thread Milling,

Turning

Edgecam Turning provides functionality for a wide range of machine tools, including 2-Axis lathes, multiturret configurations, sub-spindle turning centres and mill/turn machines. On a mill/turn machine, C-, Y- and B-Axis milling and drilling take place within the same program as the turning to provide a fully integrated and associative programming solution.

Edgecam fully supports all axis configurations from the most basic 2 axis turning centre, right through to a CYB multi turret sub spindle Mill / Turn.

Features at a glance:

– Increase machine tool utilisation
– Reduced programming time
– Reduce component cycle time
– Eliminate programming errors and reduce potential scrap
– Reduce machine tool prove out by graphically simulating the tool path
– Avoid collisions and expensive damage to machine tool
– Full support for canned cycles
– Reduce tooling inventory and stock

Edgecam produces advanced rough and finish turning cycles, together with support for facing, boring and drilling in either canned cycle or longhand format. Toolpath calculation takes into consideration the complete tooling insert and tool Holder including the “F” distance and previously machined material to avoid gouging and eliminate air cutting. Ease of use and an understanding that cycle times are critical, especially on multi-configuration mill/turn machines, underpin the development of Edgecam’s turning functionality. Edgecam offers support for SandvikCoromant Wiper inserts for turning tools, allowing these productivity enhancing inserts to be used reliably in all aspects of production machining.

3D Milling

EDGECAM’s 3D capability offers a complete solution for generating high quality, gouge protected toolpaths that meet the demands of manufacturers tasked with the programming and machining of complex parts and free form shapes

EDGECAM offers not only best in class prismatic machining capabilities, you also have powerful 3D solid and surface machining strategies

Features at a glance:

– One single machining environment
– Full machine tool and toolpath simulation
– Full collision checking
– Full boundary control – tool contact, inside, outside etc
– Efficient link moves for High Speed Machining
– In process stock, reducing air cutting

Industries involved in the manufacturing of 3D forms such as Aerospace, Prototyping, Mould Tools and General Engineering will all benefit from Edgecam’s 3D machining cycles. Edgecam offers not only best in class prismatic machining capabilities, you also have powerful 3D solid and surface machining strategies, all in one solution. With an extensive suite of advanced 3D cycles that are ideally suited for rapidly generating toolpaths for all surface and solids machining needs, Edgecams advanced machining cycles bring optimised toolpath control, reduced cycle times and an overall higher level of machining efficiency.

Unlike many CAM systems, Edgecam is ‘CAD neutral’, so whatever CAD system you use, interoperability between CAD and CAM is seamless, with no data translation. This means that you machine exactly what the designer intended and toolpaths remain associative to the master model.

Wire

Edgecam’s Wire EDM CAM solution provides you with the flexibility and confidence to manufacture 2 and 4 axis parts accurately and efficiently. Advanced functionality enables manufacture of complex shapes with irregular tapers with ease.

Intuitive operation user interface
The 2 and 4 axis machining operations give the user a choice of parameters such as machining direction, auto offsetting, lead on/off radius, tag distance, lead off distance, lead on/off technology to name just a few. Each parameter is accompanied by a bitmap giving the user additional information on how it will affect the resultant toolpath.
Multiple tagging and tag removal.

In Edgecam Wire it is possible to select from several different methods of unattended machining. If your machine is equipped with automatic wire threading, then you will most likely want to run unattended as long and as often as possible. Unattended machining is performed by leaving the slugs attached while all of the preliminary cuts are taken. Numerous strategies are available to cut the part; for instance, taking all of the rough cuts before finishing, in which case all rough cuts are taken while leaving the tags attached, then the tags are removed, and finally the finish cuts are taken. Alternatively, take the rough and finish cuts while leaving the component or waste material in place and then remove the tag and finish this area.
