To avoid manual interventions and machine downtimes, an efficient pocketing of the geometries without the creation of slugs is often needed. OPTICAM offers special strategies for this purpose:
* These modules are optionally available.
With just a few clicks, the Lead on and Lead off strategies can be set or modified.
Via the tool path, the Slug Retention creates markings in the geometry of the cutting plate. During the punching process, these markings prevent the punched parts from coming off and thus from damaging the cutting tool, guaranteeing longer service life. The creation only takes a few clicks, and complicated modifications of the construction are not necessary.
With the OPTICAM Gear Module it is possible to create non-standard gears. Profile shifts, tip and root radii, changing the tip and root diameter and the creation of the gears via roller distances or via the mass across teeth are possible options. The Gear Module is optionally available.
The Feature Recognition automatically calculates the best possible position of the start holes; it is also possible to manually modify this position at a later time. If there are already predefined start hole geometries, the Feature Recognition will take them into account. Furthermore, type, position and number of tags can be defined automatically or manually. Thus it is also possible to create multiple tags with several start holes.
OPTICAM contains all the machining strategies which are required for the efficient and safe operation of wire EDM machines. All cuts are shown in the cuts dialog and can be changed afterwards.
A 3D simulation with material removal was inserted to ensure a safe tool path check. Besides the offsetting, fixture plates and the machine heads are also displayed.
OPTICAM offers original technology databases for all common manufacturers. The user can either access the machine databases directly via interfaces, import the machine databases himself or is provided with a database which has already been converted.
