Attendees at the International Woodworking Fair (IWF) 2018 will have access to the latest in the line of powerful Mastercam machining software. Stop by booth # 4729 at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Georgia, August 22-25, for a look at Mastercam 2019 Router, with features and enhancements that streamline your entire process, from job setup to job completion.
Mastercam 2019 Router helps increases machining productivity and reduces overall production costs with new 2D through multiaxis routing automation features, CAD and model preparation improvements, and much more.
Mastercam 2019 continues to increase productivity and programming efficiency, while reducing overall production costs with a series of automated 2D through 5-axis toolpath improvements. Re-engineered chamfering and holemaking strategies, plus the new multiaxis deburring provide new levels of time-saving automation and simplicity. New toolpath strategies, like the highspeed Equal Scallop toolpath, offers both machining performance and surface finish improvements.
Job Preparation and Setup
Mastercam 2019 increases efficiency and reduces job setup time and the preparation needed for part machining and programming. This includes enhanced CAD functionality and 3D model import support, improved part preparation and fixture setup tools, additional PowerSurface capabilities, and expanded support for Model-Based Definition (MBD).
Mastercam 2019’s expanded digital tool library capability delivers accurate, tool assembly models, and provides access to the latest cutting tool technology. Mastercam 2019 also expands Accelerated Finishing™ with support for taper and lens style tools aimed at 75% cycle time improvement for finishing operations with superior surface finish quality.
With improvements to toolpath and machine simulation, toolpath graphics, and other verification and analysis tools, Mastercam 2019 provides greater programming assurance and allows for better, more informed decisions before a job is run. These improvements include support for block drilling multiple holes simultaneously and better axis control in simulation, allowing you to easily check machine limits and check for collisions.
Job Management and Documentation
Mastercam 2019 also improves job documentation and management, while helping to address quality and certification initiatives. New toolpath visualization capabilities and section view tools, improvements to view and setup sheets, and a wide array of system level enhancements improve efficiency in managing job workflow, as well as provide better tools for process documentation.
