German software developer, Schott Systeme, will present the latest version of its “pictures by PC CAD/CAM” software. This new release focuses on the reduction of both mould tool design and machining times, Schott says.

According to Schott, mould design is firstly helped by the automatic splitting of parts at edges and silhouettes curves, enabling both the core and cavity surfaces of a form to be separated from one another. The existing solid, surface and mesh hybrid modeller within pictures by PC has also been extended to support mesh offsetting, ideal for the creation of wall thicknesses on imported scanned STL mesh models.

Moulding Expo is about to start!

05/11/2017 - The tension increases: Moulding Expo 2017 is almost here. Two years have elapsed in which companies had time to develop new products and innovations. In only a few weeks, the halls in Stuttgart will open their doors to a trade fair "by the industry for the industry". read...

High performance cutting trochoidal 3D-roughing has been implemented to facilitate the quick removal of harder mould making materials. 3D-spiral finishing enables the machining of steep and flat regions of a mould, with a single toolpath that adjusts to maintain a maximum step-over relating the angle of the surface to machine. Additional improvements include 5-axis rotary roughing and 4-axis spiral finishing operations to reduce the programming and machining times on components that require milling from multiple directions. All improvements complement Schott’s existing range of milling, engraving, wire cutting and turning tools.

Schott Systeme will be presenting the software in Hall 4, Booth B46.
