Ultimate 5 axis machines programming workflow

Your advantages for 5 axis machining

Rest material handling

the workpiece keeps always updated live within the operations sequence to optimize the toolpath and avoid air-cutting.

Every subsequent operation detects the workpiece in the state it was left by previous operation.

Thus the machine time is kept optimized.

On the screenshot green color is the part itself and orange is the current state of the workpiece.

Machine kinematics consideration

We take the machine kinematics with all its limitations into account already when calculating the first tool path.

The simulation goes in the background immediately after the toolpath is calculated. User can avoid all the collisions if happened and even does not need to switch to simulation.

Thus the CNC programming workflow streamlines and takes much less time especially for 5 axis machines programming
