A solution by: CENIT

Application domain: Manufacturing

Solution Overview

FAST4AXESSoftware to Program and Simulate Wire EDMCENIT FAST4AXES allows NC users to benefit from advanced and easy-to-use Wire EDM manufacturing techniques. It provides a full set of pre-defined and re-usable machining strategies for 2 up to 4 axis Wire EDM machining. The software offers the user all the core functionalities of a NC system shared within CATIA V5 NC Manufacturing solutions: integrated tool path simulation , set-up and NC programs definition. It also provides integrated and dedicated post-processing facilities and also many Wire EDM strategies , such as: powerful contouring machining including drive curve interpolation into tangential arcs and lines, destruction cut operation (pocketing). Variable technological events can be set. 4-Axis machining includes synchronization of points as milestones and precise offset computation facilities. A very easy-to-use interface allows the user to benefit from Wire EDM techniques in a perfect interoperable way with all CATIA V5 NC Manufacturing solutions. FAST4AXES - Functional Advantages Programming of 3D contours. Upper and lower contours with milestones and direct programming of ruled surfaces and solids. Support of geometrical features. Integration of machine tool specific technologies is optimal by powerful standard post-processors Available for Agie, Charmilles, Fanuc, Mitsubishi, Sodik... Adaptable on-site by PP generator software FASTPOST Machining Operations: contouring/pocketing/point strategies... VisualBasic support to create flexible machining strategies Direct simulation of each operation 

Benefits

  • Combines dedicated functions and ease-of-use of stand-alone programming tools with the benefits of an integrated CAM software with respect to an optimum geometry support and associativity to design changes.
  • Identical user interface and infrastructure to V5 NC products like PMG, Programming of all CATIA elements (sketches, solids, upper/lower contour.)
  • Integration of machine tool specific technologies is optimal by powerful standard post-processors.
  • Automation by programming of knowledge-based scripts
  • Low prerequisites to allow a CATIA based stand-alone system for wire cutting
