CNC Software Inc.
CNC SOFTWARE INC. plans to demonstrate its most powerful machining software to date, Mastercam 2019, the latest release of the world’s most widely used CAD/CAM program. Mastercam 2019 helps increase machining productivity and reduce overall production costs with new 2D through multiaxis milling automation features, CAD and model preparation improvements, expanded 3D tooling, Accelerated Finishing™, and powerful turning and mill-turn enhancements.
CNC Programming — Mastercam 2019 continues to increase productivity and programming efficiency, while reducing overall production costs with a series of automated 2D through five-axis toolpath improvements. Re-engineered chamfering and holemaking strategies, plus the new multiaxis deburring provide new levels of time-saving automation and simplicity. New milling toolpath strategies, like the highspeed Equal Scallop toolpath, offers both machining performance and surface finish improvements.
The new release also includes additional support for the Sandvik Coromant PrimeTurning™ method, enhanced grooving, bar feed, and other features for turning and mill-turn applications, plus new lathe and Swiss-style machine support.
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).
Tool Support — Mastercam 2019’s expanded digital tool library capability delivers accurate, 3D tool assembly models, provides access to the latest cutting tool technology, and updates for Sandvik Coromant CoroPlus and MachiningCloud platforms. 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.
