According to GO2cam International, their Millyugo technology will revolutionize the way companies do CAM. The solution will be demonstrated live at EMO Hannover 2017. The system for roughing, which was developed in 2016, generates adaptive tool paths using trochoidal movements with constant tool engagement, which is said to drastically reduce machining time up to 75 percent and increase tool life up to six times. As the company points out, it additionally filed a patent in 2017 for finishing, a technology that is claimed to be unique and will also be exhibited at the fair. The French exhibitors claim in summary that their constant tool engagement on finishing tool paths yields high surface quality in corners and sets new standards for thin-wall machining.
Optimized roughing and finishing
With the new version of the Millyugo CAM software, GO2cam International claims new technological achievements in the production of adaptive tool paths. Particularly in the field of machining thin-walled workpieces, significant increases in efficiency are said to be feasible.
