TopCAM 2D Programming System Turning
TopCAM2D is a programming system for turning, integrated into a 2D-CAD-system for complete turnmill machining with life tooling and opposite spindle.
The NC program creation in neutral PAL format is done through a simply, interactive dialogue, wherein the work plan is automatically logged.
Due to the automated TopTurn setup sheet creation and the inclusion of postprocessors, it is possible to simulate the created programs in TopTurn in the programming code of the target control for every intermediate machining step.
TopCAM 3D Programming System Milling
TopCAM3D as extension of TopCAM2D, supplements the MTS product TopMill with a 3D programming system for prismatic 2 1/2 D multi-sided and complete machining with 5-axes machining centers and with the import of 3D-step milling workpiece data.
TopCAM3D is a machining plane oriented 3D milling programming system with automatic machining feature recognition for classic, multi-sided machining of usually complex machine parts with 5-axes machining centers.
It will recognize features such as boreholes, rectangular, circular pockets and any other contour pockets with islands, groves as well as any other free cutting of contour areas with islands and will automatically assign roughing, residual chip roughing as well as finishing tools with its technologies Chamfers will be recognized and may also be added (e.g. for edge breaking). The system will make suggestions in regards to tools and the machining technologies and offers additional optimization algorithms for the selection of roughing tools. A selection can be made between contour-parallel, meandering and trochodial (HSC high speed cutting) removal strategies.
The program generation is done either completely automatic based on the machining strategy, by marking the various machining planes on the workpiece, or the user may select only some features in a machining plane and determine also their machining sequence.
