The Difference is in the Calculation
Most CAM system calculate their tool path 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 path. 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.
The customer could not believe the quality of the product we had manufactured. The quality and accuracy exceeded what they had expected. We have since become their main supplier for prototype projects, along with their manufacturing for production products.
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 the direct machining to be applied to materials with high degree of hardness. In addition, it allows high quality and highly efficient machining in other situations
