Mastercam 2020 Mill offers expanded machining flexibility and an increased emphasis on speed and automation.
Tolland, CT (PRWEB) - Mastercam 2020 Mill offers expanded machining flexibility and an increased emphasis on speed and automation. 2D high speed toolpaths, 3D enhancements, and multiaxis features combine with dozens of additional new enhancements in a software package intended to improve shop floor productivity.
Here are some of the significant highlights and new functionality in Mastercam Mill:
Mastercam’s signature Dynamic Motion™ toolpath has been updated to streamline performance and increase programming speed. Accelerated Finishing™ receives new support for oval form and lens barrel form tools, delivering faster, smoother finishes on select surfaces. Toolpath Hole Definition has been improved, and the Features list now displays more information about the selected points, in addition to the type of selection you have made and the diameter of the selected point.
Mastercam’s Equal Scallop toolpath delivers finish across sloped, curved, and flat surfaces. Now tool tip containment and “Closed” or “Trimmed” toolpath offsets deliver optimal finishes for different types of complex shapes.
A new toolpath, Blend, has been added to the 3D High Speed suite of toolpaths. Blend is based on the Surface Finish Blend toolpath but is faster and has a superior quality and includes the use of stock and holder checking.
Deburr can use ball end mills or lollipop undercut tools to break edges for 3- to 5-axis, and to remove burrs. You now have the benefit of fast, automated part deburring using climb or conventional cutting, with more controls for selecting which area of your part to deburr.
Hole making is now easier with Toolpath Hole Definition supporting the selection of solid features and lines, in addition to arcs, points, and AutoCursor positions. You can also pick all or some matching diameters and vectors.
Port Expert is fast and easy-to-use add-on software for creating multiaxis toolpaths within cylinder head ports, complex tubes, or deep pockets. It is now material-aware, allowing automated programming of remaining stock.
