Before machining the workpiece, there is a necessary step for the CNC machining center, which is programming.
According to ISO regulations, five-axis machining uses a right-handed Cartesian coordinate system when describing the movement of CNC machine tools; the coordinate axis parallel to the main axis is defined as the z-axis, and the rotation coordinates of the x, y, and z axes are A, B, and C respectively. . Parts processing Each unit level that constitutes the whole of auto parts processing serves the products of auto parts processing. Precision parts processing is an accessory widely used in automobiles, communications, medical clocks, mobile phones, computers and other industries. Unlike ordinary parts, precision parts are more precise and more suitable for industries that have high requirements for precision. Programming is the work that CNC machining centers need to do before machining. The programming is not operated on the machining center, but is written on the computer with special programming software, and then saved as a specific file, which is imported into the CNC system of the CNC machining center with a U disk. That’s the job of programming.
Whether the programming is good or not has a great influence on the processing of the workpiece. Good programming is beneficial to reduce unnecessary procedures during workpiece processing. However, what programming software is used to write programs, programming is of great help. We have a lot of general programming software, mastercam, cimatron (mold), ug, powermill, hypermill and many other different software, different programming software is different, some software is more suitable for mold programming, and some software is more suitable for five-axis programming .
A. What software is good for mold programming?
Mold programming is a little more difficult than general workpiece programming, many mold programming programmers like to use ug, cimatron, mastercam, which are more powerful and cover many programming parts. However, cimatron is more professional in mold programming, and five-axis programming is also good, but it is not easy to get started. The program of Mastercam is relatively easy to learn, and it is relatively easy for novices, but its functions are limited. Of course, there are not only few but many software suitable for mold programming, but such software is commonly used.
B. What software is good for three-axis and five-axis programming?
The programming of the five-axis linkage CNC machining center is very difficult, and the software used is very demanding.
Different programming software is suitable for different aspects, the difficulty is different, and the writing effect is also different, so what kind of programming software is used for CNC machining center programming is very important.
