2 and 4 Axis Wire Cutting


Pictures by PC CAM Software for Wire EDM Cutting


2 and 4 Axis Wire Cutting

Pictures by PC enables the CNC wire cutting of 2D and 3D CAD geometry in a few simple steps. Proven 2 and 4 axis machining strategies (roughing, finishing, destroy cutting) are applied with a single mouse click and adjusted accordingly. The user has full control over the cutting parameters. Corner types include ISO and conic corners. Toolpaths can be simulated with the machine post processor and translated into NC code.


Manual and Automatic Wire Synchronisation

When cutting differing upper and lower contours, 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

Feature recognition automatically identifies areas (pocket and hole contours) that are to be cut directly from 2D and 3D CAD geometry. Additional highlights include the automatic generation of involute gears for cutting and the full integration of all CAD tools for creating, changing and repairing 2D contours and 3D solid models.

  • Over the 19 years that we have been working with Pictures by PC, there has never been a situation in toolmaking, either in terms of construction or milling, that could not be resolved. The constant further development of the software and the good support means they do not need to shy away from a comparison with other providers.

  • I've been working with Pictures by PC for many years now and would choose it again and again. Just by being able to program functions ourselves, we have saved hundreds if not thousands of hours of creating CAM blocks since the introduction of our self-created automations. A free support that takes on even the most complex issues very quickly (and by that I mean VERY) and always helps competently is simply unique.
