Surfcam Workflow understands the component topology and the required manufacturing environment therefore accelerating toolpath generation.
Workflow will have a significant impact on shortening programming time, and because it is so simple to operate, the learning curve for new users is considerably reduced.
Adopting the common Microsoft Office 2010 theme, this allows users to efficiently manage files and folders.
Dynamically sets up datum position, adds stock and fixtures through the interactive stock, fixture and machine manager functions.
Using Surfcam’s powerful automatic feature recognition, all types of manufacturing features can be found.
The Planning board applies a suggested order of manufacture, which can be manipulated easily by drag and drop techniques.
The toolpath is then simulated in the machine simulator, checking for collisions, gauges and limit over travel. The toolkit can be reviewed and edited before NC code is generated to complete the five-stage Workflow process.
