We create our CNC
with PowerMILL from Delcam. This CAM
software is capable of
processing 3 thru 5 axis toolpaths, as
well as supporting a host of
high speed machining strategies.
With tighter tolerances and
shorter lead times requested, we find that
in order to stay ahead, it
is important to have the best software and
CNC machinery available.
CAD files are
and each individual die component has
roughing, semi-roughing, and
finishing toolpaths applied to it.
Checks are made for correct
endmill sizes, clearance heights, tool
length and toolholder
The final program
processed on the screen, showing cutter
motion, stock removal rates,
and approximate cycle times.
It’s then coded,
sent through the network to the DNC
computers. With the DNC
computers feeding the machines information
as they need it, we
can operate 24 hours a day, lights out to
finish your parts.
