Geometric Continues to Revolutionize CNC Programming with a New Release of ‘Tolerance Based Machining’ for CAMWorks®
CAMWorks 3D CAM software technology, Tolerance Based Machining uses tolerances, hole callouts, surface finishes, and other annotations to automatically generate CNC programs for SOLIDWORKS 3D parts. In the new release, Tolerance Based Machining has been expanded to support ISO 286-2, (Limits and Fits)
Scottsdale, AZ, USA, & Mumbai, India – September 14, 2016: Geometric Ltd. (BSE:532312, NSE:GEOMETRIC), a global leader in 3D CNC machining software, today announced a new release of their revolutionary technology that uses SOLIDWORKS® 3D DimXpert and Model Based Definition (MBD) 3D dimensions and annotations to automate the programming of CNC machined components.
CAMWorks was uniquely architected to reduce a 3D solid model into a set of discrete machining features, and apply a knowledge base that selects tools, feeds, speeds, and machining strategies to automate the creation of CNC toolpaths. Tolerance Based Machining dramatically enhances CAMWorks core architecture by adding the ability to read and react to non-geometric manufacturing information such as tolerances, surface finish, and other annotations in 3D models. This ability not only speeds up the CNC programming process, and improvements in quality, but also creates a much stronger design-to-manufacturing process for machined components.
Jim Foster (VP channel marketing and sales) says, “In a world where every manufacturer is competing globally, we need to have tools that provide real breakthroughs in time-to-market. Tolerance Based Machining not only completes the digital thread between design and manufacture for machined components, but also significantly reduces CNC programming time, improves quality, and allows users to capture and reuse their best practices.”
CAMWorks, a parametric, solids-based CNC programming software system, brings in a revolutionary way to help machinists around the world program smarter and machine faster. CAMWorks significantly reduces programming time and removes the drudgery from CNC programming by using patented Feature Recognition technology in conjunction with full toolpath to solid-model associativity and knowledge-based machining.
