2 Turning Production Milling Surface Machining

3 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks EdgeCAM Turning This presentation shows a SolidWorks part on a sub-spindle, twin turret, mill/turn lathe.

4 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Use the EdgeCAM launch button within SolidWorks to load the part into EdgeCAM.

5 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The part is loaded directly into EdgeCAM as a solid model.

6 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Using Feature Finder, EdgeCAM finds the turned features. Note: The feature profiles generated are of the maximum turned sweep and not just a simple section.

7 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Create stock around the part.

8 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Insert lathe including chucks, headstock and slides.

9 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Enter manufacturing mode.

10 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Notice that an associative copy of the part, with features, has been transferred to the sub-spindle.

11 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Open the Instruction Browser. This machine has an upper and lower tool turret. These are shown side by side in the browser. The screen has also been split into two and zoomed into the component areas to be machined.

12 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Face the part in the main spindle. Notice the Time Line. This will expand as new toolpaths are added.

13 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Turn the OD and undercut.

14 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Now using the lower turret, face the back of the part in the sub-spindle.

15 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The profile of the part can now be milled using C axis milling.

16 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Add synchronization to ensure that subsequent events do not take place until both the main and sub-spindle have finished what they are doing. Spaces are added to the browser to provide clarity.

17 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Dock the sub-spindle with the main spindle to pick up the component.

18 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The part is now complete.

21 EdgeCAM is constantly looking at the original SolidWorks model and automatically reports if it has been updated.

22 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks With the new part automatically loaded onto both the main and sub-spindles, Feature Finder looks at the new model and identifies changed, deleted and new features relative to the original model. Changed features are easy to identify through bold text in the Feature Browser.

23 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks It can be seen that the turned profile has been changed, making the existing toolpaths unusable.

24 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Updating the toolpaths to the new profile is easily done by clicking on the regenerate button.

25 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The milled profile will also be updated in the same way.

26 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The part is now fully updated.

27 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The Time Line shows all the activities on both spindles and both turrets.

28 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The machining of the part can now be verified using EdgeCAM Simulator.

29 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks EdgeCAM Production Milling This presentation shows a component part loaded onto a fixture and rotary table within SolidWorks. The assembly is loaded directly into EdgeCAM and the part machined.

30 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The part and its stock model can be assembled on to a fixture within SolidWorks.

31 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The assembly can be loaded into EdgeCAM using the EdgeCAM launch button.

32 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks With the assembly loaded into EdgeCAM, Feature Finder identifies machineable features: pockets, bosses and holes.

33 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Here are the features found for the current coordinate plane.

34 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Enter manufacturing mode.

35 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The roughing process uses the casting as the stock boundary.

36 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The roughing process produces an optimized toolpath.

37 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Features can be machined by selecting them from the Feature Browser or selecting them from the solid model.

38 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Selecting the tapped hole features provides the option to perform a hole machining operation.

39 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks This operation will perform the spot drill, deep drill and tapping processes within a single click.

40 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Utilizing the hole sizes from SolidWorks, EdgeCAM identifies the correct tools from the ToolStore, with appropriate feeds and speeds.

41 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks These toolpaths can now be repeated for the other four faces.

42 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks These toolpaths can then be rationalized to minimize cycle time.

43 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks

44 EdgeCAM identifies that the assembly has changed.

45 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The revised assembly is loaded.

46 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks Feature Finder automatically identifies the features that have changed.

47 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The toolpaths are regenerated.

48 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The roughing cycle is updated to the new model and stock casting. The hole process is also updated for the two new tapped holes on all five faces.

49 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks The part is now complete.

50 EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for SolidWorks EdgeCAM Surface Machining This presentation shows different EdgeCAM toolpaths used in the manufacture of components with sculptured solids and surfaces.
