Makino offers version 5 of their popular EDcam? offline programming Software, providing shops with more options in a wider array of applications. This update adds to features from previous versions, upholding the value of continuous machine run time and operator multi-tasking.
New features for EDcam version 5 include expanded model data, machining conditions technology upgrades, and new electrode material types to encompass a larger number of application needs. The software is adjusted to meet the needs of more modern machine options, such as carbide machining, Z-axis stabilizers, and micro-cell EDM.
Other additions include a wider selection of cavity types, including through-machining, rib, open side, connector, pin gate, speaker grill, EDM after pre-cut, and more. The user interface has been simplified into a logical series of data entry dialogs, instead of the single data entry prompts of previous versions.
To accommodate operators that prefer separate spreadsheets, an EPX data import feature has been added, providing one-click data entry in lieu of the normal manual step-through of the dialog prompts. This update has also been modified to be fully compatible with all Windows Vista? systems.
