EASTEC 2013: Five-Axis CAM


New five-axis features in GibbsCAM 2013 will be demonstrated including options for machining bladed workpieces and exhaust port components. The enhanced software offers two new five-axisFive-Axis CAM multiblade options that simplify programming and machining bladed turbomachinery components such as impellers, blisks and blings. Specialized functions for roughing, blade finishing and hub finishing, with automatic tilting and linking, and full control of leading and trailing edges speed up programming, generate better surface finishes and reduce machining time. The software’s new five-axis porting option provides specialized functions to make programming faster and easier, and generate more efficient and smoother toolpaths for machining hollow parts that have significantly different shapes or sizes at each open end, or that have significant curvature from one end to the other, typical of engine exhaust ports, combustion chambers, manifolds and throttle bodies.
