EDGECAM, by Vero Software, Exhibited at IMTS 2018, Sept. 10-15, Chicago, Ill.Able to accurately program any machine tool, the EDGECAM computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) solution, by Vero Software, will be exhibited at International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2018, hosted at McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill.
As one of the largest manufacturing trade shows in the world, IMTS is an ideal event for seeing the latest in cutting-edge technologies, networking with industry experts and peers, and learning new methods for increasing productivity.
Visitors to the show are encouraged to learn more about EDGECAM at booth No. 133114, where demonstrations of new product features and upgrades will be available.
EDGECAM 2018 R2 contains 54 items of new or enhanced functionality that improve productivity by using a range of cutting technologies and machining strategies.
These include significant changes to the Pre-Drill Approach Roughing cycle, creating features from wireframe entities, 3D milling cycles in mill-turn Rotary mode, 28 new technology databases in the Wire EDM module, and Tombstone.
The new ‘Add Tombstone’ function ensures users never overwrite their master tombstone assembly file (referred to as ‘Seed file’). The originating file is always protected, guaranteeing that vital information is never overwritten.
The number of components that can be inserted onto the Tombstone is now limitless, reflecting best industry practice. Once inserted, the toolpaths are not only automatically merged, but the enhanced ‘Closest Next’ ordering further economizes the CAM toolpaths.
EDGECAM Designer’s 2D Drawing Module creates views and sections of the 3D model in the Designer file. Features include dynamic view creation, shaded and wireframe views, fixed and variable sections, detailed views, and outbreaks. The 2D drawing and its associative dimensions can be updated when changes are made to the 3D model.
