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.

  • 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.
