IMTS PAVILION: CONTROLS & CAD/CAM


IMTS, we will be able to see fi rst-hand what’s possible in the future with this new generation of ‘hybrid’ CNC capability. We’ve already developed much of the technology to support automated fi ber placement [AFP] machines, which some people call the largest additive machines in the world today.” CGTech will be presenting on composites software at the


TRAM (Trends in Advanced Machining, Manufacturing & Materi- als) conference held concurrently with IMTS, he said. “Our industry is changing quickly, and IMTS is a great time to learn about the latest technologies from our CAD/CAM partners, since we are expected to simulate anything they produce,” Granata said. “IMTS is invaluable in that it allows us to meet with all of our partners in one place over the course of a week.” —Patrick Waurzyniak


CAD/CAM Software The new Mastercam 2017 brings a new suite of program- ming tools focused on delivering speed, automation, and effi ciency for all machining jobs. Mastercam 2017 introduces a more effi cient workfl ow, improved usability, Dynamic Motion improvements, and so much more. The software features a new ribbon interface that makes it easier to fi nd functions


Factory Automation


Company will demonstrate new CNC, robotic and factory automation technologies designed to help customers solve manufacturing challenges to increase effi ciencies, overcome the skills gap, and stay competitive. FANUC is building on the reliability of its CNC products and will show technologies that can monitor systems remotely and address potential problems before they occur. The company will feature several new products and features designed to improve machine performance and provide faster cycle times as well as greater accuracy and precision. The display will include new robots for machine tending, material handling, assembly, welding and coating, and the company will also highlight its suite of intelligent software platforms designed to help manufacturers connect and analyze the performance of their FANUC automation products.

you need to complete your tasks. The ribbon tabs group similar functions and displays them in order from simple to more complex. Mastercam’s Dynamic Motion technology can slash machine time by as much as 75% or more. Dynamic Motion maximizes material removal rates, extends tool life, reduces cycle time, saves wear and tear on machines, and cuts hard materials more easily. New to 2017, micro lifts now use a line-of-sight approach to move the tool where it needs to go through unobstructed areas. This results in reposition moves that are more effi cient, less complex, and travel a shorter distance resulting in shorter cycle times. CNC Software Inc.

NC Simulation The new Vericut version 8 will be featured by CGTech at the show. The Vericut CNC machine simulation, verifi cation and optimization software simulates all types of CNC machining, including drilling and trimming of composite parts, waterjet, riveting, robots, mill/turn and parallel kinematics. The soft- ware operates independently, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems. Vericut machine simulation de- tects collisions and near-miss- es between all machine tool components


such as axis slides, heads, turrets, rotary tables, spindles, toolchangers, fi xtures, workpieces, cutting tools, and other user-defi ned objects. Users can also set up ‘near-miss zones’ around components to check for close calls and detect over- travel errors. Machine movements and material replacement can even be simulated while stepping forward or playing back-
