SURFCAM, by Vero Software, to be Presented at IMTS 2016, Sept. 12-17, Chicago, Ill.The SURFCAM CAM solution, by Vero Software, will be presented Sept. 12-17 at International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2016, hosted at McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill.
Featuring more than 2,000 exhibiting companies and drawing over 100,000 visitors, IMTS is one of the largest manufacturing trade shows in the world. As such, it is an ideal platform for seeing the latest in cutting-edge technologies, networking with industry experts and peers, and learning new methods for increasing productivity.
Visitors to IMTS are encouraged to learn more about SURFCAM at booth No. E-3114, where demonstrations of new product features and upgrades will be presented.
SURFCAM Workflow, the market leading software application, offers a programming strategy designed to lower manufacturing costs, improve part quality and shorten lead times. Workflow understands the component topology and the required manufacturing environment, thereby accelerating toolpath generation.
Available for both milling and turning operations, Workflow lowers programming time and, because it is simple to operate, the learning curve for new users is significantly reduced. Unlike many CAM systems for which the user must manually set the machining environment and use traditional commands to create data, Workflow automatically detects the machining environment and creates an interactively movable origin based on the user’s preferences.
Also available in SURFCAM is the Waveform Roughing strategy, a high-speed machining technique that maintains a constant tool cutting load by ensuring the tool engagement into the material is consistent. The toolpath moves in a smooth path to avoid sharp changes in direction, which maintains the machine tool’s velocity.
Waveform Roughing greatly improves on standard roughing by ensuring a constant volume of material is removed. In addition, this opens up the way for use of high-speed machining, particularly for harder materials. Using as much of the flute length as possible distributes wear evenly along the entire cutting length, rather than just the tip. The radial cut depth is reduced to ensure consistent cutting force, allowing cut material to escape from the flutes. Tool life is extended, as most of the heat is removed in the chip.
SURFCAM is a powerful and affordable 3D CAM solution from Vero Software that achieves the balance between feature sets and ease of use. SURFCAM products have been installed on more than 26,000 systems worldwide during the past 25 years. In that time, SURFCAM has grown to support 15 languages and has gained an outstanding reputation for training and providing the highest level of technical support to its customer base.
