Metav 2016 – CAM-Software

Faster Roughing

With the extension of the Metav to model, tool and mould construction, the CAM area gains in importance. Correspondingly, almost all important CAM software providers are presenting their current versions at the fair. What they promise is clear: shorter processing times with new modules and more efficient component optimisation.

Metav 2016 – Smart Factory

Working from One Database

A smart factory needs start-to-finish process chains, from design to production and all the way through to logistics. Yet, for this, all processes must also be networked and able to communicate with each other. At the Metav, Siemens shows which solutions are available for this start-to-finish process chain, how they can be realised and how firms can profit from it.

Due to the larger area of contact with the component compared with ball cutters, a larger path separation is possible in finishing. (Mastercam)

5-Axis Processing Optimised

At its Metav booth, Mastercam will present the latest version of its CAD/CAM software. The live demonstrations will be the highlight, because a 5-axis machining centre will produce a component on site.
