For High-Speed CNC Machining and Hard Milling

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.

Compatible with Windows 10, Windows 7 X64 Professional, Windows XP, XP64 and VISTA. CAM-TOOL provides Mold & Die manufactures a wide range of modeling capabilities not found in “high end” programming systems. Once your data’s prepared, the calculation of NC toolpath is completed by simply defining your machining strategy & 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 toolpath based on surfaces, 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/Polish Free Toolpath
  • Operation & Tool reduction
Machining Finish Quality of CAM TOOL

“Gpcam” is the Heart and Soul of CAM-TOOL with its “Tool Path directly from the Surface Calculation” using its proprietary algorithm which allows it to achieve high-precision machining.

Triangulation Mesh Calculation and Surface Calculated Tool Paths

In the case of “Triangulation Mesh Calculation” that many CAM systems adopt, the positional accuracy is degraded since the tool-path is generated along the Triangular shapes that are approximated from surfaces of the CAD model.

In the case of the “Surface Calculated Tool Paths” of CAM-TOOL, there is no approximation of the surface shape, so it is possible to keep the accuracy of tool-path. Since there is no gap from CAD data, CAM-TOOL’s distinguished algorithm calculates the tool contact points on the original surfaces.

Elimination of Over-cutting (Gouging) and Leaving Remains

When machining by the tool-path with component points created using “mesh based model” (tolerance in some CAM Systems), there is the possibility of considerable over-cutting (gouging) and leaving remains (stock) at particular areas with large or discontinuous curvature, and that may cause deterioration in the accuracy of the net shape.

Considerable Over-cutting and Remains

Relocation of Components Points of Tool Path

CAM-TOOL calculates relocation of component points of the tool-path using its special algorithm, corresponding to curvature of the shape. This calculation enables the proper relocation of component points along the shape. This also achieves an accurate tool-path that is a tremendous advantage over the other CAM Software for an accurate reproduction of the model shape.
