SolidCAM – Brochure Overview

SolidCAM – Overview 26 SolidCAM's THSR and THSM SolidCAM’s Turbo 3D HSR (THSR) and Turbo 3D HSM (THSM) are powerful High Speed Roughing (HSR) and High Speed Machining (HSM) modules for much faster calculations than the regular HSR / HSM modules THSR and THSM offer unique machining and linking strategies for generating high-speed toolpaths The 3-Axis calculation engine recalculates the toolpath at lightning speeds Its 64-bit architecture completely utilizes all the cores for toolpath calculations The current THSR strategies (Hatch, Contour, and Rest) remove large volume of excess material rapidly and leave a small amount of stock for semi-finishing and finishing strategies The biggest advantage of these strategies is that the toolpath contours are always collision free while machining ù Extremely fast calculation and generation of toolpaths ù Fewer options – quicker definition of High-Speed Machining jobs ù Advanced gouge checking strategies ù Most efficient, collision free toolpath Auto 3+2 High Speed Roughing Hybrid High Speed Roughing with 5X-transitions between THSR Jobs SolidCAM’s Auto 3+2 THSR Hatch and Contour technologies detect and process undercut areas in the specified range of processing angles The functionalities of these technologies remain mainly the same as Turbo 3D HSR with an added advantage of Auto 3+2 Axis support The Auto 3+2 module is useful to efficiently machine undercut areas and gaining increased access from a single direction It minimizes the number of operations with different machining directions TURBO HSR & TURBO HSM
