CAM For Five-Axis Machining

TopSolid'Cam software is capable of piloting turning, two-axis machining, three-axis milling, four and five axis continued milling, four- and five-axis continued turning, synchronization and complex simulation. The software offers five-axis sweeping, which eliminates accessibility problems to certain areas of the part and reduces turnaround time, and swarf machining, which limits the number of machining passes by using the side of the tool instead of its extremity. Machining is therefore cleaner and faster.

For parts which may be machined on a three-axis machine, TopSolid'Cam offers the possibility to transform a classical three-axis tool path into a five-axis tool path. This option permits the use of shorter tools which offers better cutting conditions, a reduction of possible variations and a significant reduction in machining times.
