Be the First to See Mastercam Swiss Expert

CNC Software has acquired well-respected Swiss machining software SylvieXpert. Developed in Switzerland for Swiss machines by experts in the Jura region of Switzerland where these machines were invented, we've been refining and adapting it. We will be previewing the 2011 release of Mastercam Swiss Expert at this show.

Mastercam Mill X5 - Built for Speed

We'll also be spotlighting the newly released Mastercam X5, including:

o Fast, aggressive, intelligent roughing

Mastercam's new 3D surface high speed OptiRough toolpath is a new technique designed to remove large amounts of material quickly using its successful dynamic milling motion. Large, aggressive cuts are followed by fast, smaller up-cuts, safely delivering a fully roughed part faster than ever.

o Smart Hybrid Finishing

Hybrid finishing intelligently blends two efficient cutting techniques in a single toolpath. This new toolpath evaluates the model shape and smoothly switches between Constant Z cutting and Constant Scallop machining. The result is a dramatically finer finish with less work.

o Streamlined multiaxis machining

Mastercam's multiaxis suite has new machining techniques and a new, easy, workflow-oriented interface. Mastercam lets you choose the basic type of work you're doing using clear illustrations, and then gives you a clear, step-by-step process for defining how you'll cut the part. Mastercam's multiaxis machining also includes a new highly specialized interface for smooth, gouge-free engine head porting.

o New Dynamic Milling Techniques

Dynamic milling constantly adjusts the toolpath to ensure the most efficient cut possible and allows use of the entire tool flute length, often eliminating the need for multiple depth cuts. New dynamic milling techniques include Dynamic Rest Mill and Dynamic Contour. Dynamic Rest Mill helps ensure maximum tool efficiency during cleanup routines. Dynamic Contour uses an intelligent, efficient high speed contouring strategy to remove material along walls. It supports multi-passes and can optionally include finishing passes.
