Creating and Using Turning Tool Cutting Data

You can use cutting data stored within tools to transfer optimum feed, speed, and depth of cut parameter values into NC sequences. Cutting Data Theory • Optimize parameter values • Data based on: – Workpiece material – Tool – Application ♦ Roughing/finishing Figure 1 – Cut Data Tab Cutting Data Creating and …

Creating and Configuring Turning Workcells

The workcell specifies the type of machine used when creating NC sequences, for example, mill, lathe, or mill-turn. You must specify a workcell before you can create NC sequences. Workcell Configuration • Name • Type – Mill, Lathe, Mill-Turn, or Wire EDM • Number of Turrets • Post-Processor • Probing Option Figure 1 …

Configuring Turning Operations

Configuring manufacturing operations form part of the set up for the manufacturing procedure. An operation and a machine tool must be configured before NC steps can be created. Manufacturing operations contain: • Fixtures (Optional) • Machine Coordinate System • Retract Plane • Start/End Points (Optional) • NC Sequences Figure 2 – …

Opening the Mold

You can simulate the mold opening process by defining steps and moves in the mold model. • Define steps. • Define moves within steps. • Rules: – Each step can contain several moves. – Components can be in only one move per step. – A move may contain several members. Figure 1 – Fully …

Creating Ejector Pin Clearance Holes

Ejector pin clearance holes are created in mold components so that ejector pins can pass through and push the molded part out. • Ejector pin holes are similar to conventional holes. – You can specify a different diameter through each intersected component. • Available types: – Linear – Radial – Coaxial – On Point …

Applying Start Models to Mold Components

You can rename extracted mold components and apply start models to them. • Benefits of using templates: – Datums – Layers – Parameters – View Orientations • Because each mold component is a part model, it should be renamed accordingly. Figure 1 – Extracted Mold Component Model Tree Figure 2 – Renaming Mold Components …

Splitting Volumes using Multiple Parting Surfaces

You can use multiple parting surfaces to split a workpiece or mold volume. • You can use multiple parting surfaces in a single split operation. • You can use multiple parting surfaces in multiple split operations. Figure 2 – Selecting Multiple  Parting Surfaces Figure 1 – Model Tree Containing Two Parting Surfaces Figure 3 – …

Creating Saddle Shutoff Surfaces

A saddle shutoff typically requires you to create multiple surfaces to achieve the desired shape. • Create the surfaces. • Perform surface manipulations. • Merge the surfaces to create the final shutoff. Figure 1 – Saddle Surface Created Figure 2 – Face Surfaces Created Figure 3 – Final Saddle Shutoff Creating Saddle …

Analyzing Skirt Surface Options: Extension Directions

You can add or modify the direction that the skirt surface extends from the silhouette curve segments. • Extension directions can significantly alter the shape of the skirt surface. • Arrows denote direction at each segment vertex. – Orange – Default direction – Cyan – User-defined direction – Red – Tangent direction • Select …
