Schott Systeme uses its Pictures by PC CAD/CAM software to help further streamline tool mould design and machining.

Pictures by PC CAD/CAM software from Schott Systeme is said to help further streamline tool mould design and machining. The mould design process is helped by the automatic splitting of CAD parts at edges and silhouette curves, enabling core and cavity surfaces to be separated from one another. The Hybrid Modeller (solid, surface, mesh) in Pictures by PC has been extended to support mesh offsetting for creating component wall thicknesses on imported scanned mesh models, the Germany-based software developer for CAD/CAM and IT solutions says.

Trochoidal 3D Roughing is implemented for high-performance cutting (HPC) to facilitate the quick removal of harder tooling materials. 3D Spiral Finishing, a high-speed cutting (HSC) finishing strategy for tooling, machines steep and flat regions of a part with a single spiral toolpath, thus maintaining a maximum step-over regarding the angle of the machining surfaces.

Other new features include 5-Axis Rotary Roughing and 4-Axis Spiral Finishing operations to reduce programming and machining times on components that require milling from multiple directions. A new 5-Axis Simulation also checks for possible collisions (component, spindle, tool and clamps) without the need for a full machine simulation.

All of the software improvements complement the company's existing range of milling, engraving, wire cutting and turning tools. This software also includes free-of-charge support and standard machine post processors, without the annual maintenance costs.

At AMB 2018, Schott Systeme will be exhibiting in Hall 2, Booth 2A01.
