Edgecam Overview

Edgecam -The standard in intelligent solids based manufacturing

Edgecam is a market leading computer aided manufacturing (CAM) system. Capable of programming milling, turning and mill-turn machines, Edgecam combines unrivaled ease of use and sophisticated toolpath generation. Edgecam is a principal brand of the Planit group - recently ranked by CIMdata as the world's fastest growing CAM vendor, with most industrial users.

Edgecam is a complete CAM software solution for production machining and mold & die applications. With an extensive range of 2-5 Axis milling, turning and mill/turn strategies, seamless CAD integration and sophisticated automation tools, Edgecam is the only CAM system you'll ever need.

Edgecam is designed to cope with programming the simplest to the most complex components and offers full support for the latest CAD, machine tool and tooling technology. Available worldwide, Edgecam is supplied and supported through a network of subsidiaries and specialist resellers.

 

 

Edgecam -Roughing Smooths the Way for Better Machining

A new waveform roughing strategy offering even greater stability, more precise machining and faster metal removal, is just one of the significant enhancements in the latest release of the market-leading CAM software, Edgecam.

And a new flow surface cycle improves the machining of fillets and 3D surfaces.

The capabilities of both milling and turning all benefit from enhancements in Edgecam 2012R1

The following are just some of the many improvements in functionality and ease-of-use in Edgecam 2012 R1:

 

 

New Flow Surface Cycle:

The new Flow Surface cycle follows the flow of the surfaces, offering improved surface finish, helical support to reduce link moves, and multiple face support, making it ideal for machining fillets and 3D surfaces.

 

 

New Waveform Roughing Strategy:

Constant tool load path and smooth toolpath pattern, offering greater stability, more precise machining and faster metal removal. This gives improved tool life, constant engagement with material and constant chip load, superior material removal rates, and an improved surface finish which potentially eliminates secondary cutting cycles.

 

 

New Slot Cycle Support for Features:

The updated Slot Cycle supports the recently introduced slot feature. Feature Finder has been enhanced to recognise areas that can be machined with the slot cycle. Along with having a new option to select 2D, 3D and Solids as a cycle input, and new options to specify clearance, level and depth associative to the solid model, allows for slots to be machined in a single pass, and the Ramp approach moves into a closed slot.

 

 

Tailstocks in Edgecam:

Edgecam 2012 R1 allows machines to be configured with tailstock devices. It means users can control tailstock movements with graphical feedback; and specify parametric or custom tailstock graphics in the Code Wizard. There is also full simulation of tailstock movements along with collision detection.

 

 

Simulator Enhancements:

These include:

• Start Simulation from any ‘Under Stock’ command

• Selecting an alternative toolkit for simulation

• Enhanced simulation output.

Edgecam is a market-leading CAM system for NC part programming. With unparalled ease of use and sophisticated toolpath generation, it is the only CAM system needed for milling, turning and mill-turn machining.

In highly competitive markets, automation is the key to reducing programming time and maximising efficiency. Extensive research and development ensures Edgecam’s twice-yearly releases allow users to gain the absolute maximum performance from their CNC machines and the CAM process, maintaining a competitive edge.

Edgecam 2012 R1 will be featured along with machining demonstrations at Edgecam’s “Innovation for Productivity” event on 23 November. In partnership with Mazak, Sandvik, CG Vericut and 3d connexions, the open day will be held at Yamazaki Mazak UK Ltd’s UK Technology Centre at Badgeworth Drive, Worcester. To attend the event, register at http://www.edgecam.com/IFP2011

Edgecam -The only CAM system you’ll ever need for solids based manufacturing

Edgecam is a market leading computer aided manufacturing (CAM) system for NC part programming. With unparalleled ease of use and sophisticated toolpath generation, it’s the only CAM system you’ll need for milling, turning and mill-turn machining.

Edgecam Solid Machinist reads native data from all major CAD systems, avoiding data translation problems or potential issues with 3rd party interfaces. State-of-theart solids-based machining includes automatic feature recognition and full model-to-toolpath associativity.

 

 

Every industry has its own unique challenges when it comes to delivering high quality parts. Edgecam’s wealth of manufacturing sector experience enables customers to address continually changing market requirements including those driven by legislation or increased demands in technology and safety, for example.
