Program Smarter. Machine Faster. Improve Tool Life.
CAMWorks VoluMill is an optional and newly introduced milling toolpath engine within CAMWorks for 2.5 axis and 3 axis roughing operations. It is ideal for prismatic parts and complex 3D shapes 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.
Full Integration in CAMWorks
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.
- Reduce your cycle times up to 80%
- Reduce your programming times up to 50%
- Increase your cutting tool life up to 500%
CAMWorks with VoluMill Help Tomak Precision Boost its Efficiency and its Bottom Line
Tomak is a job shop that prides itself on its advanced manufacturing technology and highly skilled individuals. It sees this mix as giving it the edge it needs to serve demanding customers in the aerospace, medical, machine tool and other industries, handling everything from prototype work to short lots to full production runs. After implementing the CAM software, Tomak was convinced that VoluMill was a must-have, fitting perfectly with Tomak’s ongoing drive for faster, more efficient, and thus, more cost-effective machining.
