ProCAM II, available from NC Computer Systems , provides flexibility for machining solid or wireframe models that have been created using CAD tools or imported using ProCAM's translators for popular file formats such as ACIS, IGES, Parasolid, DWG and DXF.
* Rest machining: Rest machine areas for all finish cycles based on previous tools or work in process. Rest machine areas for roughing based.
* Slice cutting: Compared to previous slice cutting, significant speed increases for parts using slope containment and for radial, spiral and other types of projection cutting.
* Roughing: Compared to previous roughing cycles, speed increases of up to 20 times can be expected on large complex parts with memory usage during cutting reduced by up to 95%.
* Pencil mill: Completely updated resulting in a much-improved toolpath.
ProCAM II solutions will be demonstrated at Austech 2004.
