Edgecam’s Wire EDM Application on Show at Southern
Edgecam, the leading production CAM solution which combines the power of sophisticated toolpath generation with seamless CAD integration, will be showing its latest release on stand P72 at the Southern Manufacturing Exhibition on February 13 and 14, at FIVE, at Farnborough (www.industrysouth.co.uk).
Part of the Vero Software Group, Edgecam is used globally within a multitude of industries, providing a complete solution for milling, turning and mill-turn programming.
Visitors to the stand will be able to see its recently-introduced wire EDM product which provides an intuitive environment for the comprehensive programming of all wire EDM machine tools.
And a number of enhancements give added value for all Edgecam users.
• The industry-leading Waveform Roughing cycle now has the ability to specify a pre-drilled hole as the approach type, ensuring a smoother transition into the material, reducing the cycle time even further.
• A new “Tube” stock type has been added, and the user can now edit stock dimensions and re-pick geometry while retaining the stock shape. Changes to the stock are now considered automatically when regenerating the machining instructions.
• Further enhancements have been made to the Edgecam Simulator, enabling the simulation process to rewind to a previous position in the machining sequence.
• Toolpaths are now generated much faster thanks to a new 5-axis 64-bit machining engine running as a separate process, utilising multiple core technology. Background processing of milling cycles in the Mill/Turn environment is now available, meaning the user can carry on working while Edgecam calculates complex toolpaths.
