Geometric’s CAMWorks® to showcase critical new functionality for the Tool and Die industry at DIEMOULD India 2016

CAMWorks 3D CNC Machining Software uses surface finish, GD&T and tolerance information in SOLIDWORKS® 2016 to automate the generation of CNC Toolpaths

MUMBAI, India and Scottsdale, AZ, USA, March 16, 2016 -- Geometric Limited (BSE:  532312,   NSE: GEOMETRIC), a global leader in 3D CNC machining software, will present critical new functionality in CAMWorks to simplify and speed up the CNC programming process in the Tool and Die Industry by using manufacturing data; including tolerances, surface finish, GD&T, thread callouts, etc. in SOLIDWORKS 3D models, at Booth #C05, Hall 2 from 6th to 9th April, at DIEMOULD India 2016 in Bengaluru, India.

CAMWorks now has the ability to read dimensional information and will automatically select the correct tools, speeds, and feeds to meet the surface finish requirements called out in the model, set nominal values for asymmetric tolerances and select the appropriate tools, operations, and strategies to generate toolpaths to meet the requirements. This functionality automates the CNC programming process and eliminates the necessity to manually calculate allowances when defining CNC tool paths, or the need to rebuild 3D models to mean geometry, eliminating potential mistakes, while saving time and money, and will streamline the transition from design to manufacturing.

Available through an upcoming, second-quarter 2016 point release of CAMWorks® 2016, ‘Tolerance Based Machining’ will automatically select the correct machining strategies and eliminate long-standing differences between design practices required to tolerance parts based on fit, form, and function vs. manufacturing’s need to machine geometry based on mean dimensions and tolerances. CAMWorks 2016 is also the only CNC application that can read surface finish annotations and automatically select the tools, operations and strategies for correct tool path generation. 

“For years, CNC programmers have had to read drawings and manually select tools, feeds and speeds, and hope the selections achieved desired results,” explains Swadhin Bhide, Head – Geometry Technology Solutions at Geometric. “CAMWorks solved part of this problem by capturing best practices and using those practices to automate toolpath generation.  Now this game-changing technology has been extended to automatically read surface finish and dimensional requirements and select the correct machining strategies to automatically generate toolpaths.”

“With this new capability, CAMWorks 2016 software will automatically select the correct tools, feeds and speeds based on geometry as well as the manufacturing information captured in the 3D model.  This significantly speeds up the CNC programming process, while reducing errors and time consuming manual efforts previously required,” he added.
