EDM CAM Works releases new wire EDM module
India — Expertise firm HCL introduced a brand new wire EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) module for the CAM Works suite of CAD/CAM software program.
The brand new wire EDM module from HCL contains new cutting-edge performance that takes the design mannequin to G-code in a single click on. As soon as the consumer clicks the “Stable to G-code” button, the system routinely searches the half for machine-able options, identifies them, generates all of the operations with the customers’ preferences and settings (together with device offsets, reducing situations and begin holes), creates the toolpaths, and posts the G-code. Utilizing the brand new wire EDM module, even advanced 2-axis elements, 2-axis elements with tapers, and full 4-axis wire EDM elements can now be programmed in a single click on.
The brand new CAM Works wire EDM module additionally contains enhanced function recognition for non-planar geometry. As a substitute of the consumer needing to undertaking the geometry for the highest and backside of the half and create 2D sketches, the brand new wire EDM software program makes use of geometry immediately from the stable mannequin to assemble and create the right prime and backside profiles routinely.
Extra highlights embody computerized angular wire threading, help for Solidworks patterns, and automation primarily based on face colours. Automated angular wire threading analyzes the half and routinely acknowledges when angular threading could be required. It then creates the toolpaths mandatory to permit for angular threading of the wire and to machine the half. Assist for Solidworks patterns simplifies the NC code and streamlines the programming course of by routinely figuring out the patterns and using them to simplify the CNC program. The know-how primarily based on face colours permits the consumer to simply determine and handle options which might be to be programmed, in addition to how they have to be machined. By assigning a coloration to the face of an element or to your entire half, user-defined machining methods are assigned routinely to streamline the programming course of.
