Renowned CNC Software
developer Mastercam is happy to announce the release of Mastercam 2020 Router.
This all new Mastercam 2020 is equipped to increase router cutting productivity
and reduces overall production costs with new 2D through multiaxis automation
features, CAD and model preparation improvements, improved Machine
Configuration, 3D Tooling, and many more enhancements designed to streamline
manufacturing from job setup to job completion.
Mastercam 2020 meets
the need for CAD/CAM software to increase productivity and programming
efficiency, while reducing overall production costs, with a series of automated
2D through 5-axis toolpath improvements. Drag-and-drop expansion in select
toolpaths streamline programming changes, and automated multiaxis deburring
speeds complex edge break operations. 3D tooling has also seen many usability
improvements such as 3D tool icons in tool lists, stop-on-contact functionality
when mating insert to holder, and auto-populating compensation point when
defining 3D tools.
increases efficiency and reduces job setup time and the preparation needed for
part machining and programming. This includes the ability to filter inserts and
holders by attributes as well as the ability to track associativity. Chaining
enhancements include faster, easier chaining for Wireframe and Solids in
addition to chain display and behavior improvements.
With improvements to
toolpath and machine simulation, toolpath graphics, and other verification and
analysis tools, Mastercam 2020 provides greater programming assurance and
allows for better, more informed decisions before a job is run. These
improvements include the go to home position on tool plane change which moves
the tool to a home position between operations when there is a plane change.
Rotary axis positioning allows you to simulate and visualize multiaxis movement
of the machine tool, while Skip Drill Cycle Pecking improves cycle time
Mastercam has teamed up
with some of the manufacturing industry’s top players, providing a wider
variety of new software tools, shop-proven hardware, powerful learning tools,
and much more. Save time, reduce errors, and gain access to the latest
innovative partnerships offered through Mastercam.
