EDGECAM 11.75 PROVIDES NEW 5-AXIS CAPABILITIES AND FASTER OPERATION
Version 11.75, the latest release of EdgeCAM¹s advanced CNC offline programming system, expands on its 4 and 5-axis machining capabilities and delivers improved CAD data management, faster graphics andm achine programming.

Building on EdgeCAM¹s established multi-axis machining strengths, V11.75 adds fast and accurate machine simulation and toolpath generation for both intersecting and non-intersecting axis head/head machining configurations. The latest release enables multi-plane and 5-axis simultaneous milling to be combined in a single process ­ further speeding programming and reducing manufacturing downtime.

A series of new 5-axis roughing strategies has been added to the system¹s operations, further streamlining 5-axis programming. By using an intuitive graphical interface, both new and experienced users can create multiple cut toolpaths for 5-axis swarf, curve, finishing and 4-axis rotary machining in seconds.

Additional enhancements for turning operations include a bar pull command, enabling the sub-spindle to grip the component, reposition and machine it as part of a single cycle. New dynamic imaging allows EdgeCAM users to quickly edit or update existing programs on demand.

The introduction of a Unigraphics® File Loader reinforces EdgeCAM as the standard in intelligent solid based manufacturing. The loader provides true associativity to the native UG model, virtually eliminating the risk of data loss through file translation and ensuring automatic updates to the toolpath for any changes to the original model. V11.75 also allows for the direct loading and processing of STEP® files with toolpath associativity previously only achieved through native solids data.

With three new releases each year, EdgeCAM continues to support the latest CAD developments. This is underlined in V11.75 which, within days of the launch of Autodesk Inventor® 2008, fully supports the manufacture of parts designed in the latest format.

EdgeCAM¹s continued focus on faster and easier programming is also reflected in performance improvements to the application¹s roughing and profiling cycles ­ enabling the calculation of complex toolpaths to be reduced by as much as 50%.
