NEWS RELEASE: SmartCAMcnc announces release of SmartCAM v2018
Tuesday, December 12, 2017 - Springfield, Oregon - SmartCAMcnc has announced the release of SmartCAM® v2018. SmartCAM v2018 delivers new Adaptive Rough Milling technology in the Advanced Milling™, SmartCAM FreeForm Machining™ and SmartCAM Advanced Turning™ applications; new Verification modules in SmartCAM Advanced Fabrication™ and SmartCAM Advanced Wire EDM™; improved feed rate control and numerous other useful core additions found in all products.
NEW ADAPTIVE ROUGH MILLING
The SmartCAM Adaptive Roughing toolpath results in consistent cutting condition, elimination of full-width slotting cuts and automatically-created adaptive feedrates, which provide end-user benefits of increased tool life, reduced cycle time and reduced shock on their machine.
"With the new SmartCAM Adaptive Roughing toolpath processes, the engagement volume of the cutter with stock is constantly monitored and maintained using in-process-stock algorithms. These algorithms handle the changing volume conditions encountered when creating toolpath for the infinite geometric possibilities," Oliver went on to say.
Features of the SmartCAM Adaptive Roughing processes include:
VERIFICATION MODULE NOW IN ALL APPLICATIONS
Additional verification improvements include:
"In our previous release, we began a new and productive relationship with ModuleWorks. Adding their Adaptive Roughing in SmartCAM v2018, we extend that partnership, and remain excited by the various technology now available to us to implement going forward. Our customers have been uniformly pleased with the significant improvements resulting in their SmartCAM products," said Oliver.
