2 and 4 Axis Wire Cutting

Pictures by PC CAD/CAM Software - 4 Axis Pocket

Pictures by PC enables the CNC wire cutting of 2D and 3D CAD geometry within a few simple steps. Proven 2 and 4 axis machining strategies (Roughing, Finishing, Destroy Cutting) are applied with a single mouse click and altered to suit. The user has full control over tagging options in addition to automatic tag removal. Multiple corner types include square, ISO and conic. Toolpaths can be simulated and translated into NC code using a machine post processor.

Manual and Automatic Wire Synchronisation

When cutting differing upper and lower profiles, the software automatically synchronises the wire between the two contours (4 axis simultaneous cutting). The placement of vector direction symbols also enable the wire inclination to be manually adjusted at strategic points on the contours. The final sequence of cuts can be optimised across multiple operations, controlling the order of roughing, finishing and tag removal cuts.

Feature Recognition

Pictures by PC CAD/CAM Software - Wire EDM Cutting - Feature Recognition

Feature recognition helps to automatically identify areas (pocket and hole contours) to wire cut directly from 2D and 3D CAD geometry. Additional highlights include the automatic generation of involute gear profiles for cutting, and the inclusion of CAD tools to both create, modify and repair 2D contours and 3D solid models.
