The Fastest and Most Accurate CAM Software on the Market
CAM-TOOL is a five-axis-control-machining-center compatible, high-end CAD/CAM system with a hybrid CAM engine (Polygon and Surface Calculation). This Hybrid capability enables direct machining to be applied to materials with a high degree of hardness. In addition, CAM TOOL provides a superior surface finish, longer tool life, reduced machining time and finishing time.
Sophisticated NC programmers appreciate the importance of a complete, integrated CAD/CAM environment to handle the toughest manufacturing jobs. Regardless of the application, these elite users often find the need to modify, edit & create additional geometry to support the creation of toolpath.
CAM-TOOL provides Mold & Die manufactures a wide range of modeling capabilities not found in “high end” programming systems. Once your data has been prepared, the calculation of the NC toolpath is completed by simply defining your machining strategy and cutting tools. CAM-TOOL does the rest by always making sure the tool only goes where necessary to remove material using our powerful optimization capabilities.
CAM-TOOL’s ability to create the toolpath based on surfaces, and not a mesh, provides unbelievable finish quality. In addition, our unique Z-Level-Offset cutting and Re-Machining strategies allow programmers of “Hard Tools” and “High Speed Machines” to control the amount of material to be removed with each pass, providing programmers with:
- Improved finish quality
- Safe unattended machining
- Increased tool life
- Reduction of benching & hand work
- Spot free and polish Free toolpath
- Operation & tool reduction
- Compatible with Windows 10, Windows 7 X64 Professional, Windows XP, XP64 and VISTA.
Most CAM systems calculate their tool paths using what is referred to as a triangulation mesh. This means putting a virtual net over the model and using the intersecting points to calculate their tool paths. This mesh creates inaccuracies in the NC code, and in turn, your part. With CAM-TOOL’s surface calculation, your NC code is directly offset from the surfaces to ensure smooth, accurate tool paths that are true to the model. This higher accuracy NC code increases tool life, surface finish and produces more accurate parts.
