IRONCAD CAM connectivity offers fast machine setup with efficient machining
ATLANTA GA, March 23rd, 2016 — IronCAD, a leading provider of design productivity solutions, today announced full integration with the latest version of SprutCAM, a powerful programming system for milling, turning, wire EDM, multi-tasking machine tools and robots.
IronCAD’s unique Catalog Drag & Drop technology leads the industry in design reuse and is especially helpful for CNC machine setup and fixture design. The Drag & Drop process offers intuitive part positioning which make it easy to create fixture assemblies, part setup documents and other relevant machining content. IronCAD makes it easy to share this information among your design team and the machine shop for convenient access.
The IronCAD catalog can archive parts with precise datum locations for CNC machining and fixture design and when combined with IronCAD’s patented TriBall®, customers can position and orient machining parts with ease. IronCAD also delivers a wide range of tools to allow you to keep your manufacturing team closely involved in your CNC projects by including photorealistic rendering, 3D/2D PDF, web publishing of models, and a standalone 3D viewer.
Being a Gold Partner of IronCAD, SprutCAM system allows its users to add a “SprutCAM” button directly in IronCAD. On clicking this button, the current model is transferred and opened directly in SprutCAM. Additionally, while in the IronCAD session, the user is able to keep editing the model and then with a click of the “SprutCAM” button they are able to update the earlier opened model, recalculate the current tool path and generate a new control program. Such associativity ensures convenient working and updating with SprutCAM and the highest efficiency of the machining process due to excellent control programs.
Cary O’Connor, Vice President of Marketing at IronCAD stated, “IronCAD is pleased to announce the SprutCAM integration and the granting of our Gold Partners status to SprutCAM.” Cary added, “The SprutCAM integration is a natural extension in the design process and the ability to make changes to the design for manufacturing with the update mechanism to maintain tool paths, provides a significant increase in productivity.”
