B-Axis Contour Turning Cycle | Edgecam 2017 R2
B-Axis Contour Turning cycle allows simultaneous B-axis movements while machining on a turning centre. This new feature allows greater accessibility when machining complex profiles, by dynamically positioning the insert. With automatic toolholder gouge protection the user can deploy the command for both roughing and finish operations.
Inspection | Edgecam 2017 R2
The Inspection Module offers unparalleled ease of use for both in-process and end-item part inspection. With a growing need for ‘on-machine’ probing support, Edgecam empowers the users to create a set of inspection features which are then converted into a toolpath and simulated. This means the machine code macros are created via Edgecam’s postprocessor.
