3-D CAM System FFCAM
5 axis Machining
It would defy the common wisdom of 5 axes machining that was once taken for the granted.
The concept is "Anyone can create NC program of 5 axes machining easily".
To create the NC program of 5 axes machining as operating the 3 axes CAM.
Machine simulation operates with "NC program" used in an actual machine.
The complicated behaviors such as indexing machining or simultaneous 5-axis machining can be verified during checking a realistic machining simulation before an actual machining.
Cutter paths created with the FFCAM are converted to cutter paths with effective hairline.
This function outputs information on machining work piece and tools, etc. from FFCAM to VERICUT (cutting simulation software).
This enables FFCAM --＞ VERICUT NC simulation flow to be carried out smoothly. VERICUT simulation can be started in just three clicks from FFCAM.
VERICUT is the trademark of CGTech.
It is used to simulate tool path motion and the material removal process, detecting errors or areas of inefficiency in NC programs.
For that reason, it is essential to have simulation software for visually checking machine movements by taking such factors into account before starting to machine.
