SolidCAM – Brochure Overview

SolidCAM – Overview 24 SolidCAM's High-Speed Machining (HSM) offers unique machining and linking strategies for 3D high-speed toolpaths It smoothens the paths of both cutting moves and retracts, wherever possible, to maintain a continuous machine tool motion – an essential requirement for maintaining higher feed rates and eliminating dwelling ù 3D machining taken to an entirely new level of smoothness, efficiency and smart machining ù The finest toolpaths available anywhere for complex 3D parts, aerospace parts, molds, tools and dies HSR – High Speed Roughing SolidCAM HSR provides powerful high-speed roughing strategies including: HM roughing, contour, hatch, hybrid rib-roughing, and rest roughing High Speed Finishing With SolidCAM’s HSM module, retracts to high Z levels are kept to a minimum Angles are smoothed with arcs wherever possible, ensuring that retractions never exceed what is necessary This minimizes air cutting and machining time ù Efficient and smooth toolpath that translates to increased surface quality, reduced wear on your tools and a longer life for your machine tools ù High Speed Machining is a must in today‘s machine shops to meet demands for ever-shorter lead and production times, lower costs and improved quality HSR & HSM | 3D HIGH SPEED MACHINING
