Increase machining performance with accurate tool-path computation
In the era of rapid digital transformation, computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) tools are inextricably linked and generally used together to simulate and visualize manufacturing processes. Highly accurate and precise machining operations with nearly eliminated risk of production defect are ensured by thorough complex algorithms of tool-path computation what ends up with effective production planning resulted from exact geometric computations. In this context, CAM Library SDK developed under Open Cascade Commercial Platform offers a set of special data structures for 2D modeling of wires, contours and standard Boolean operations as well as unique algorithms for relevant computations on 2D geometry. The same technologies can be also used to perform numerical operations on 3D geometry, when it comes to offset and pocket operations or computation of geodesic curves and distances. In this context, CAM Library SDK developed under Open Cascade Commercial Platform offers:
- A set of special data structures for 2D/3D modeling of toolpaths, contours and standard Boolean operations as well as unique algorithms for geodesic computations
- Algorithms to perform numerical operations on 3D geometry, when it comes to offset and pocket operations or computation of geodesic distances
CAM Library-based software solutions are successfully used in CNC piloting, printed circuit
board (PCB) creation, non-destructive robotic inspection, laser welding, computed tomography (CT), etc. Fully extensible to provide scaled-up functionality when integrated into engineering software, CAM library is an optimal tool for CAM applications that require efficient ready to use computational algorithms. Accurate, optimized, automated work of manufacturing machines reduce cycle times, guarantee low rate of production defect and eliminate the risk of unexpected downtime.
