Contour cutting in mold processing (Part 1)

in the development process of UG, cam has always been the most reliable and workpiece partner of processing industry. It not only provides reliable and accurate tool path, but also allows NC programmers to design the most efficient machining program at will. Cimdata's survey report last year pointed out that edsug is regarded as the strongest competitor among all CAM software suppliers

ugcam has the following characteristics:

provide reliable and accurate tool path

can be processed directly on surfaces and solids

a good user interface allows users to customize the user interface according to work needs, which can not only improve operation efficiency, but also make good use of and save the company's konw how

provides a variety of machining methods, which makes it convenient for NC programmers to design various efficient tool paths

provide a complete tool library and processing parameter library management function, so that new employees can make full use of the experience of senior personnel to design excellent tool paths

provide universal post-processing function to generate NC programs applicable to each NC machine

ugcam includes functions such as 2-axis to 5-axis milling, machine milling, wire cutting, large tool library management, solid simulation cutting and universal post processor. In this paper, the author will introduce the application of three-axis milling medium high cutting in mold processing

contour cutting

contour cutting is mainly used in mold processing under processing conditions that require uniform force on the tool. For example, in rough machining, the tool is generally under great force, so contour cutting can limit the force on the tool within a range by controlling the cutting depth. In addition, if the processing part is too steep and too deep and needs to extend and lengthen the blade during medium processing or finishing, we can help you! Because the tool is too long and the deflection is too large during machining, it is often necessary to use contour cutting to reduce the force on the tool. At present, the most popular high-speed cutting machine is also the user of contour cutting

The contour cutting function of UG not only provides a variety of machining methods, but also allows the tool to make the fastest and best cutting under the uniform stress state energy in the whole machining process. The following are the characteristics of UG contour cutting

there are no restrictions on the use of tools

nc programmers can freely choose flat knives, ball knives, round nose knives, t-knives and other tools for equal height cutting according to the performance of the tool machine, the material of the blank, the clamping method and the cutting efficiency. In terms of calculation, UG uses the selected tool to calculate along the machining surface, so it can produce an accurate tool path. And display the tool path of cutting with T-knife, and display the tool path of cutting with flat knife (thin line is the tool path)

automatic detection of undercut

ug can automatically detect the undercut area within the processing range and automatically calculate the best tool path. For example, when milling with a T-knife, if the tool handle does not interfere with the machining surface, UG will make the most complete cutting as far as possible. In, due to the use of flat cutter cutting, in the undercut area, the tool path generated by UG is based on the principle that the whole tool does not touch the machining surface

provide a variety of tool path types

ug and other high cutting for compound cutting, one-way cutting and spiral cutting, which reduces the labor intensity of employees, cutting along the edge and multi-layer cutting along the edge. Among them, multi-layer edge cutting provides an efficient processing path for rough blanks, and it is also a good choice for finish machining of steep machined surfaces at the recent symposium on nano real-time display program running status particles on both sides of the Taiwan Strait. High speed cutting machines can use this function to produce good machining paths. Tool path for multi-layer edge cutting. Three tool paths are generated at each depth. The first one is 3mm away from the finished surface, the second one is 1mm away from the finished surface, and the third one is processed on the finished surface
