EdgeCAM Turning

EdgeCAM Turning

Edgecam Turning provides functionality for a wide range of machine tools, including 2-axis lathes, multi-turret configurations, sub-spindle turning centers and mill/turn machines. On a mill/turn machine, C-, Y- and B-axis milling and drilling take place within the same program as the turning to provide a fully integrated and associative programming solution. Ease of use and an understanding that cycle times are critical, especially on multi-configuration mill/turn machines, underpin the development of Edgecam’s turning functionality.

Edgecam produces advanced rough and finish turning cycles, together with support for facing, boring and drilling in either canned cycle or longhand format. Tool path calculation takes into consideration the complete tooling insert and previously machined material to avoid gouging and eliminate air cutting.

Edgecam offers support for Sandvik Coromant Wiper inserts for turning tools, allowing these productivity enhancing inserts to be used reliably in all aspects of production machining.

The Rough Turning Cycle offers the latest in anti-notching technology thus promoting longer tool life and increased profitability. Moreover the Rough Turning Cycle offers variable rough billet control thus guaranteeing no “fresh air” cutting.

The Rough Grooving cycle offers pecking capability thus allowing for deep grooves to be produced and less possibility of swarf build up. The Finishing Turn cycle incorporates CRC (Cutter Radius Compensation) plus variable feed/speed and offset control. The cycle also caters for Down cutting allowing for best turning practice whilst machining critical parts.
