CoroPlus Solutions Now Available in Mastercam



CoroPlus ToolLibrary from Sandvik Coromant allows users to create digital tool assemblies and import them into Mastercam

In a move designed to improve efficiency and quality in CAM operations, CoroPlus ToolLibrary and PrimeTurning method from Sandvik Coromant have been integrated in Mastercam 2018. The CoroPlus suite of connected solutions from Sandvik Coromant facilitates digital machining, providing access to real-time process insights and data. "Mastercam is the first CAM software to integrate solutions for both CoroPlus ToolLibrary and PrimeTurning technologies," said a company spokesperson.

CoroPlus ToolLibrary is a digital tool library designed to remove the need for users to browse catalogs and webpages to find the required tool data. It also allows users to import tool assemblies directly into their CAM system and provides access to tool catalogs containing perfect digital representations of the physical tools. The planning of machining operations using the exact dimensions and models of the tools enables accuracy in CAM programming, thus reducing the risk of collisions during machining. Additional benefits include the considerable time savings created by eliminating the need to search catalogs and other sources for references. Furthermore, assurance is provided that different tool items will always fit together.

Users can find the tool simply by inputting the tool ordering code or using filter commands. The finished assemblies are then imported into Mastercam 2018 with the click of a button, ready for programming and simulation.

"Selecting the right combination of tool holder, tool body and inserts is simplified and expedited using CoroPlus ToolLibrary," said Pernilla Lindberg, Product Manager for CoroPlus ToolLibrary. "The library functionality is based on the ISO13399 tool data standard that permits users to import tool assemblies directly into their CAM package."

Another part of the new Mastercam release is an option for PrimeTurning. PrimeTurning software enables quick and accurate programming of PrimeTurning, a new methodology that allows machine shops to turn components in all directions with a single tool. CNC Software, developers of the Mastercam software, have partnered with Sandvik Coromant to ensure that CAM users can create programs for PrimeTurning within Mastercam.

"To ensure that machine shops maximize the benefits and huge potential of PrimeTurning, correct and smart programming is required, as well as optimized and easy tool selection," said Mia Pålsson, Senior Manager, Turning Tools. "Helping to optimize manufacturing processes is a core focus at Sandvik Coromant; we are not just a cutting tool manufacturer; we help machining companies to be more efficient at the planning stage. We are, therefore, proud to work together with CNC Software to support our common end users."

Meghan West, President of CNC Software, said: "We are thrilled to partner with Sandvik Coromant to help bring these innovations to the market. It is exciting that our users will be some of the first to benefit from these industry breakthroughs. With the widest installed base of any CAM system, we are eager to see the many ways Mastercam users will capitalize on these advancements."
