CoroPlus Solutions from Sandvik Coromant Integrated into Mastercam


n a move designed to improve effi ciency and quality in CAM operations, CoroPlus ToolLibrary and PrimeTurning method


from Sandvik Coromant (Fair Lawn, NJ) have been integrated in Mastercam 2018 from CNC Software Inc. (Tolland, CT). The CoroPlus suite of connected solutions from Sandvik Coromant facilitates digital machining, providing access to real-time process insights and data. Mastercam is the fi rst CAM software to integrate solutions for both CoroPlus ToolLibrary and PrimeTurning technologies. Co- roPlus ToolLibrary is a digital tool library that eliminates the need for users to browse catalogs and web pages to fi nd tool data. It also allows users to import tool assemblies directly into their CAM system and provides access to


“Selecting the right combination of toolholder, tool body and inserts is simplifi ed and expedited using CoroPlus ToolLibrary,” said Pernilla Lindberg, product manager for CoroPlus ToolLibrary. “The library functionality is based on the ISO13399 tool data standard that permits users to import tool assemblies directly into their CAM package.” Sandvik Coromant’s PrimeTurning software also is inte- grated into the new Mastercam 2018, enabling quick and accurate programming of the new methodology, which al- lows machine shops to turn components in all directions with a single tool. This partnership ensures that users can create programs for PrimeTurning within Mastercam software. The CoroPlus ToolLibrary from Sandvik Coromant allows users to create digital tool assemblies and easily import them into Mastercam. “To ensure that machine shops maximize the benefi ts and huge potential of PrimeTurning, correct and smart program- ming is required, as well as optimized and easy tool selec- tion,” says Mia Pålsson, Sandvik Coromant senior manager, turning tools. “Helping to optimize manufacturing processes is a core focus at Sandvik Coromant. We are not just a cut- ting tool manufacturer; we help machining companies to be more effi cient at the planning stage.”

tool catalogs containing digital representations of physical tools. The planning of machining operations using the ex- act dimensions and models of the tools enables accuracy in CAM programming, thus reducing the risk of collisions during machining. Users can fi nd the tool by inputting the tool ordering code or using fi lter commands. The fi nished assemblies are then imported into Mastercam 2018, ready for program- ming and simulation.

marter, faster machining pro- cesses are offered in the new Esprit 2017 CAM software from DP Technology Corp. (Camarillo, CA), which features quicker, simpler machining processes with expert toolpaths, streamlined user control, and accelerated process- ing power. Esprit 2017 features a new three-axis Global Finish-


ing cycle that provides a comprehensive solution for steep/ shallow milling of complex geometries. This cycle optimizes machining by applying the most appropriate toolpath to com- plex parts based on an analysis of the model and a single threshold angle. A redesign of Esprit Facing dramatically reduces the number of steps needed to face a part. Real-time intelligence about the shape of in-process stock is now built into fac- ing, pocketing, and contour milling for faster, more reliable
