Multiaxis Mill-Turn Advancements

IMTS visitors can see the latest functionality of Mastercam 2023, from CNC Software, LLC, at booth 133222 and at the Student Summit booth 215200.

Stas Mylek, Partnerships Program Manager at Mastercam, will be presenting "Digitalization of the Manufacturing Floor: Are SMEs Ready for the Next Wave?" on Monday, September 12, from 3:15 PM to 4:10 PM in room W192-C. He will cover how emerging digitalization will impact small and medium machine shops and how best to prepare for change.

Mastercam will be on display throughout the IMTS show floor, with over 40 parts being programmed in Mastercam partner booths such as MC Machinery (338129), Okuma (338500), DN Solutions (338900) and FANUC (338919). Meanwhile, in the main Mastercam booth, Mastercam partners, resellers and employees will be giving presentations every hour Monday through Friday on many different topics and features.

Features of Mastercam 2023 include:

  • Consolidating multiaxis toolpaths: Morph, Parallel, Along Curve and Project Curve are no longer individual toolpaths in Mastercam 2023. Instead, the Unified toolpath allows access to these cut patterns when you add the appropriate curves. For example, to create a toolpath that morphs between two surfaces, select Unified from the Multiaxis toolpaths, and then set the Cut Pattern to two surfaces with the Morph style.
  • Detecting undercut stock when machining: The Dynamic OptiRough and Area Roughing toolpaths can now be aware of undercut stock conditions, resulting in improvement to the toolpath motion, including less air cutting.
  • New B-Axis Contour Turning toolpath: Mastercam 2023 introduces a new toolpath to the Turning suite for the Mill-Turn product. B-Axis Contour Turning is a finishing toolpath that allows for rotation of the B-axis while the tool is cutting. The toolpath features a top-down workflow and provides users with either automatic or manual motion control. Automatic mode produces safe toolpath motion that keeps the insert in contact with the contour. Manual mode offers full control over the B-axis angles along the contour.
