ModuleWorks to show 2013.08 CAD/CAM components at EMO

September 3, 2013 - ModuleWorks, the leading supplier of CAD/CAM components for 5-Axis machining and CNC simulation, will debut the latest release of its CAM components, version 2013.08 at the EMO trade fair for metalworking technology in Hannover (Hall 25, Stand L09) from 16th to 21st September 2013.

ModuleWorks is at the forefront of 5-Axis machining and Simulation technology, providing the machining and CNC simulation technology that powers many of the leading CAM systems available today.

At EMO, they will be showing the latest release of their components; highlights are shown below.

5-Axis Machining

2013.08 introduces a new caching mechanism for 5-Axis toolpath generation, providing much faster regeneration when parameters are changed.  Time consuming intermediate steps of the calculation are cached and those applicable are re-used when re-calculating the toolpath.

Additional toolpath extension options for SWARF Machining have been added to allow the overcutting of tilted edges. Multiblade has additional lead-in/out options to allow arc motion on the approach and retract for each pass.

A new extrude machining toolpath strategy has been added. This features automatic tilting and collision control and is optimized for large stone cutting tools.



Toolpath extensions for SWARF machining


A new proximity alert function has been provided.  Alerts may be triggered at different points as the tool moves closer to the stock. These alerts can be set up individually for the holder, arbor and shaft parts of the tool allowing users and integrators a high degree of control.

The compare functionality which allows gouges and excess material to be shown and measured now has additional control options such as show only gouges, excesses or both using different color selections.

Woodworking applications can now apply different textures for cut and uncut wood. To aid visualization the red coloring of tool and stock collisions can be turned off.

Simulation of turning application now allows a MESH to be used to represent the lathe tool insert, allowing a more accurate representation of the tool.

Simulation has been optimized for the latest generation nVidia GeForce GTX 7000 graphics cards and speed has been dramatically improved by a factor of 3 – 10 times.
