Hexagon Production Software Solutions at CMTS in Toronto Sept 30-Oct 3

Four manufacturing solutions that cut programming and production time without sacrificing quality, by the Hexagon Production Software business, were featured Sept. 30-Oct. 3 at the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show (CMTS) in Toronto, Ontario.

Leading manufacturers in multiple industries from Canada and beyond have gathered at CMTS for more than 40 years to source solutions and knowledge from global leaders in machine tools and tooling, metalworking, and advanced manufacturing. Offering a diverse mixture of live technology, unrivaled keynotes, panel discussions and technical sessions, CMTS includes several signature networking opportunities designed to help attendees connect, share and celebrate manufacturing.

EDGECAM, RADAN, SURFCAM and WORKNC were exhibited at booth No. 1737, where the time-saving features of each solution were demonstrated by knowledgeable software experts.

EDGECAM 2020.0 introduces a specific 5-axis ‘Tilt’ control strategy, combined with a ‘Barrel Cutter,’ and represents a significant enhancement for users. Barrel cutters are recognized as one of the fastest tools for 5-axis machining, and are now fully supported in the EDGECAM Toolstore.

The new quick-nest mode in RADAN 2020.0 provides a more visual interface, as well as limited upfront setup for projects and a redesigned new-project dialog that allows users to nest more quickly. Time benefits can also be achieved with machine-specific projects and templates, which are also designed to help users nest more quickly.

A number of new and enhanced features available with the latest version of SURFCAM provide increased productivity for both milling and turning users. Mindful of the need to generate efficient toolpaths to reduce production costs, SURFCAM 2020.0 offers a significant performance boost when either roughing or profiling a solid model. Users are able to utilize the machining engine to compute only the data constrained within a boundary, ignoring the rest of the model; this significantly decreases the cache size while generating faster toolpaths.

WORKNC 2020.0 expands its exclusive Advanced Toolform technology with the introduction of 5-axis machining for any tool shape, including shapes such as barrels, ovals, and parabolic, to be calculated over part surfaces, including negative offsets (allowances).
