WESTEC 2013: Feature-Based CAM Software

FeatureCAM software includes a number of new options for turning, four-axis rotary machining and turn-mill operations. Enhanced turning gives the ability to add fillets to any sharp corners, for example, for automatic deburring, without having to edit the geometry. Turning simulation has been made more realistic and includes the programming and simulation of tailstocks and steadyrests when turning longer parts.  Programming of both turn-mill and four-axis equipment has been made much easier with the ability to change the index axis part-way through programming. The ability to incorporate probing routines into machining programs makes it easier to undertake unsupervised production operations by allowing automated checks to be carried out before, during and after machining.
