Turning and Turn/Mill


Pictures by PC CAM Software for 2 Axis Turning and Turn/Mill


2-Axis Turning

Pictures by PC enables the 2 axis turning of CAD geometry. With just a few mouse clicks, proven machining strategies (roughing, finishing, grooving, threading, parting off and drilling) can be transferred to new turned parts. Toolpaths can be simulated (incl. stock material and clamping tooling) and translated into NC code using control-specific post processors.


Multi-Axis Turn/Mill *

Turning with multi-axis and/or multi-spindle (C, Y and B axes). The turning and milling operations are located within a single, integrated user interface. This single programming environment enables the simulation and NC program generation of the combined milling, drilling and turning operations - * requires the 5 axis simultaneous module


Feature Recognition and Live Stock Update

Feature recognition automatically identifies areas (pockets, turning contours and holes) that are to be cut directly from 2D and 3D CAD geometry. Live stock calculation updates stock material after each turning operation. This ensures that subsequent toolpaths are only calculated in areas that require further machining.

  • At 1st Mold, we make aluminum tools for plastic injection molding. We mill our complex and high-precision forms using Pictures by PC. What we particularly appreciate about Pictures by PC is the ability to program routines to automate the creation of milling programs. It should also be mentioned that all the software’s functions are accessible as source code so that they can also be easily adapted. The support is very competent and helps should questions about programming arise. Even with the software updates, you can see that SCHOTT SYSTEME GmbH takes user requests and information seriously and integrates them into the software.

  • We work at several workstations with the CAD / CAM software Pictures by PC, mainly to undertake our machining tasks (we are a classic injection mould maker). I find the efficiency of the support / service particularly impressive. I was always helped promptly, patiently, competently and in a friendly manner. The topics dealt with went much deeper than just using the software. Suggestions for enhancements are welcomed and taken on board for future versions. We look back on a long-term cooperation with SCHOTT SYSTEME, we consider the strong customer focus of Schott as an absolute added value.
