5 axis simultaneous milling

Benefit from the most used 5 axis CAM software in the industry. More than 60% of all CAD/CAM users are convinced of the high-value modules for the CNC-programming of 5 axis simultaneous machining.

For the 5 axis simultaneous machining it is possible to use end mill, ball-end- andmaschinensimulation_ torus cutter, chamfer cutter or lollipop cutter. In addition, the tool shank, the extension and the holder will be considered.

2D / 2.5D milling
vectorcam 2D/2.5D Milling generates NC programs from 2D geometries. 2D contours are created with the integrated CAD system or imported into vectorcam via CAD interfaces (DXF, STEP etc.).

Numerous milling strategies (face milling, contour milling, engraving, chamfering/deburring, open/closed pockets incl. residual material, trochoidal/HSC milling, 3D profile contour milling) are available to the user.

With ready stored complete machining operations, the time required for NC programming is considerably reduced. This means, for example, that tapped holes can be completely programmed with just one command.

Integrated tool and technology management provides optimum feeds and speeds for perfect surfaces and short machining times. The setup sheet and a tool list show information about machining operations and the tools used.

- Simple operation
- Setup sheet and tool list
- Short milling paths for fast chip removal
- Trochoidal/HSC milling
- NC program creation directly from DXF import
- Tool and technology database
- Reduction of programming time due to ready stored machining cycles
- Fast NC programming from 2D contours
- 3D profile contour, e.g.: 2.5D line-offs of curves
- Automatic drill hole recognition and machining
- Simulation of machining

vectorcam 2.5D milling with NC-Features
Fräsen mit NC-Features
CAM software
vectorcam GmbH
CAM software
NC programming, especially of simple machine components, is often very time-consuming in CAM systems. The idea of the NC features is to be able to program these parts as easily and quickly as possible.

No complicated and elaborate dialogues in a universal function, but specific functions for component shapes such as slot, slotted hole, bore, circular pocket, tenon, chamfer, rounding, step etc.. This not only makes NC programming easier, but also creates short NC paths that are gentle on the tool.



Automatic feature recognition for slotted hole
An interface-independent feature recognition helps the user to select the form features. Geometric information such as slot width/depth, chamfer size/angle, rounding radius, slot width, etc. is displayed in the dialogs and automatically transferred to the corresponding fields.

Without having to modify the 3D CAD model, the integrated fit tables can be accessed directly in functions such as slotted hole, drill milling, etc. After selecting the desired fit, the milling function or the milling paths are automatically calculated to "center tolerance".

With this simple handling and the high level of operating comfort, you not only achieve a high level of safety in programming. With the NC features integrated in vectorcam, even simple machine components can be programmed quickly and easily in a CAM system for the first time.

- Shape-dependent milling functions
- Interface-independent feature recognition
- Reduction of programming time
- Transfer of geometry data into the dialog
- Integrated fit tables
- Simply structured dialogs
- Automatic filters for tool selection
- Short milling paths for fast chip removal
- Tool and technology database
- Simulation of machining

3D milling
vectorcam offers state-of-the-art strategies for roughing and finishing in 3D milling. Both simple parts and complex parts can be programmed very quickly. Machining takes place depending on the workpiece blank or also within specified limits. The collision check monitors the model geometry and clamping devices with the tool and the tool holder during the entire calculation of the milling paths.

From HSC to residual material.
With high-speed milling (HSC) or trochoidal milling (TSC), long tool life is achieved with simultaneous high feed rates and infeed depths, as well as high surface quality.

The functions are supplemented with the automatic detection and removal of residual material.

- Powerful roughing and finishing functions
- HSC roughing (Trochoidal Speed Cutting TSC)
- Stock dependent machining
- 3D collision check tool and holder
- Stock manager
- Toolholder manager
- Efficient rest machining
- Undercut detection and machining
- Short milling paths for fast chip removal
- Tool and technology database

4 and 5 axis indexing/positioning
Any vectorcam machining strategies support the 4 an d5 axis positioning. The positioning rotates or positions the work piece within any axis (A-, B-or C).

For the rotation suffices the orientation of the local axes of coordinates in the particular processing level. There are different automatic and/or dynamic instructions available for a fast alignment. The rest will be done automatically by vectorcam.

For an easy and fast CNC programming of mill-turning machines vectorcam unifies all available turning-, drilling- and milling operations to one unity within the module turning / mill-turning. Thus any functions can be combined. Consequently, there is a high number of applications for multi-axial simultaneous working mill-turning machines.

Postprocessors, which are optimally accommodated to vectorcam and to the CNC control, deliver the CNC program for different mill-turning machines.

The reliable vectorcam ease of use allows thereby an easy and fast CNC programming even for high complex CNC operating machines.

vectorcam Wire EDM / Cutting
The module ?Wire EDM / Cutting? is used for wire-cut EDM, flame cutting, plasma cutting, water cutting, lasing / laser marking and cutting plotter. Within those types of machining there are often 2d-contours applied. The contours consist of lines, arc of circles, nurbes, spline curves or any combinations of the different element types.
