 CAM Evaluation
24-06-2004 03:41 . pm   |   View his/her posts only
We are currently using VX CAD & CAM. We have lots to learn on the CAM side, but I feel we are making good progress. Our previous CAD and CAM systems were Think3 and HyperMill. We have programmers who are reluctant to leave HyperMill and totally use VX CAM. We have a 5 axis machine on order and I have to choose a 5 axis CAM system. My first choice is VX. The other software packages still under consideration are PowerMill and HyperMill. I don't want to bad mouth any system, I'm just looking for reasons to back my 1st choice of VX. Any documents, testimonies, or links to publications would be greaterly appreciated.

One major point is that VX is backed by shareholders SNK (http://www.snkc.co.jp) (http://www.snkamerica.com), who design and manufacture superb 5-axis CNC machines of all types and sizes.

In mold and die 3 axis VX is pretty good. We had clients that used before many other cam systems and gave us good feedback about this.

Some traditional 5 axis parts are milled multipositional with our product because generates better and more predictable toolpath.
