2 and 4 Axis Wire Cutting2 and 4 axis wire cutting with individual setup of pre and post cuts. Automatic detection of pockets and holes.2 and 4 Axis Wire CuttingPictures 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 SynchronisationWhen 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 RecognitionFeature 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.Import/Export of Neutral CAD-Formats: SAT, STEP, IGES, (STL), DXF2 and 4 Axis Rough and Finish Cutting with Multiple Tagging OptionsISO and Conic Corner TypesAutomatic Recognition of Pocket and Hole FeaturesManual and Automatic Wire SynchronisationSingle Click Application of Proven Machining Strategies
