Mill Post Processor Provides Support
CNC Software Inc. collaborate with Siemens with milling post processor.
CNC Software Inc.’s milling post processor was designed utilizing the technical expertise of Siemens CNC engineers. It provides three- and four-axis support for Sinumerik 808D CNCs.
Features include: Cycle 832 support for high-speed settings, work offset support matching control capabilities, 808D optimized drilling cycles (82, 83, 84, 85, 86 and 840), numerical tool call with offset D#, Toffr functionality to support cutter compensation wear strategy, optimized multiaxis toolpath using the Fgroup and Fgref commands and an application guide.
Systems for monitoring the machining process not only allow tool wear and tool breakage to be detected at an early stage, but they also provide a process assessment and optimization functions that can be used to improve machine utilization and thus improve the return on machine capital cost.
Used in lean manufacturing processes, multis can suffer from long setup times. Upgraded Brownies often compete very favorably with multis on medium-length runs.
With a unique part program software suite onboard a powerful CNC, one shop has found it’s producing more and better parts much faster on a recently acquired turning center.
