Reduce Cycle Times
CAMWorks® VoluMill™ is an ultra high-performance toolpath engine within CAMWorks for 2.5 axis and 3 axis roughing operations
CAMWorks® VoluMill™ is ideal for complex 3-D shapes and prismatic parts as its algorithms result in more intelligent toolpaths to machine pockets, slots, and arbitrary shapes. VoluMill is well suited for machining soft as well as hard materials that are hard to chip, such as titanium, nickel-based alloys or stainless steel. The result is increased efficiency and utilization of machines, tools, labor and materials.
Program Smarter, Machine Faster! The high-performance roughing module, which is fully integrated in CAMWorks, combines optimal milling paths and maximum material removal with minimized machining times. VoluMill’s unique approach to high speed material removal allows the programmer to determine the optimum material removal rate for any combination of part geometry, material, machine, and cutting tool. Material is removed in the most effective way possible. Consequently, machines run smoothly and tools run cooler.
