Aug 20, 2013: CNC Software, Inc. and Local Resellers Showcase Mastercam X7 at IMTOS 2013, India
Delhi, India – CNC Software, Inc., traveled to New Delhi, India to support
esteemed Indian Mastercam Resellers Onward Technologies Limited and SIM
Technologies Pvt. Ltd. at the IMTOS 2013 show. India is rapidly emerging to the
forefront of the global manufacturing market, and the IMTOS show served to
reinforce that fact. With more than 100,000 visitors, the show was a great
success, and there are many prospects and existing customers to follow up with
as a result.
attendees got to experience the most powerful Mastercam machining software yet,
Mastercam X7. Mastercam X7 introduces many significant new capabilities,
including the new Mill-Turn product, Renishaw Probing, and much more.
New Mastercam Mill-Turn
Mill-Turn product makes machining on today’s high-powered turning centers and
full-function machining centers simpler and easier than ever before. Mastercam
Mill-Turn streamlines the programming process with intelligent job setups that are
keyed to the exact machine in your shop. Intelligent work plane selection makes
it easy to select the proper spindle and turret, and program your part with Mastercam’s
proven milling and lathe toolpaths.
Mastercam X7 integrates Renishaw’s Productivity+™ for
in-process gauging. This uses a measuring probe on a machine tool to determine
fixture offsets, orientation, and critical dimensions. Probing eliminates the
need for tool presetters, expensive fixtures, and manual settings with dial
indicators. It allows for machine offsets to be automatically adjusted, even
during the machining process, to further enhance the manufacturing process.
New Lathe Dynamic Rough Toolpath
The Lathe Dynamic Rough toolpath is designed for hard
materials cut with button inserts. The dynamic motion allows the toolpath to
cut gradually, remain engaged in the material more effectively, and uses more
of the surface on your insert, extending tool life and increasing the cutting
Also available in Mastercam X7:
· The new Tool Manager, providing a whole new way to create and organize your tooling.
· Improved Backplot and Verify utilities that offer a more efficient workflow, better analysis tools, and more comprehensive toolpath support.
· Dynamic and OptiRough toolpaths with more efficient tool motion, including enhanced cut orders and faster calculation times.
· Multi-threading support extended to most 2D high speed toolpaths, resulting in faster toolpath processing.
· Oscillate motion for Curve and Swarf 5-axis toolpaths, improving your tool life by not always machining with the same area of the tool.
