An improvement in job management now means a job ID can be changed without having to subsequently recalculate the machining job in question. The consecutive numbering of the compound and machining jobs is controlled via a start value and an increment value.
Benefit: Transparent structuring of processes and reduced calculation times.
The new strategy for Thread Milling simplifies programming. This is credit to a range of improvements:
Benefit: Simplified programming.
This new strategy enables barrel cutters to be used efficiently in the finishing of prismatic fillets. It allows an extremely high feed rate to be achieved with plunging and pulling motions. The conical barrel cutter is applied according to the high feed machining parameters of this strategy. The calculation of the tilt and the contact point of the barrel cutter are fully automated. This allows the formation of high-quality transitions between different wall areas. Ball and bullnose end mills can also be used efficiently with this strategy.
Benefit: Easy to use, faster machining.
