ModuleWorks, the leading supplier of CAD/CAM components for toolpath generation and simulation, today announced it would showcase latest versions of its 3-5 Axis machining and simulation technology on booth D-3305 at the IMTS exhibition to be held in Chicago from 8th to 13th September.
In addition to the latest release of its flagship product for 5-Axis simultaneous machining, ModuleWorks will also be showing new component technology for both 3-Axis machining and machining simulation.
The new simulation component offers fast simulation of the machining process and includes full material removal and machine simulation options. ModuleWorks simulation has been designed with speed and ease of implementation in mind – David Plater, Technical Director comments “Simulation is an important aspect of the CAM programming and manufacturing process with customers expecting more and more of the prove out process to be carried out in a virtual environment within the CAM system and increasingly on the CNC control itself. Our simulation component offers a full range of visualisation and analytical tools to ensure maximum reliability, performance and productivity.”
ModuleWorks’ toolpath generation strategies have been extended to support a wide range of 3-Axis strategies to compliment their state-of-the-art 4- and 5-Axis multi-axis machining component. The new strategies include roughing and finishing with rest material detection and support for the latest high speed machining technology.
