MILL-Expert

Automation par excellence:

Automatic feature recognition in the PEPS milling module. The basis is 3D CAD data, which is read in via direct interfaces or via neutral formats such as STEP or Parasolid.

Your advantage:

Complex parts are programmed very quickly and conveniently by linking machining schemes. The integrated color recognition ensures a clear assignment of the machining features.

Multiplane editing

The additional module Multi-Side Machining enables the programming of machines with 4 and 5 axes. In conjunction with MILL-Expert, the zero points are set automatically.

Multipoint processing

With multi-point machining, workpieces can be programmed quickly on different zero points. The part is programmed only once and can then be duplicated. The parts are machined with workpiece or with tool change optimization.

Tool database

  • The tool database contains all tool information as well as tool and holder geometries
  • ID-Number
  • Material-dependent cutting data calculation
  • Automatic update of cutting data in case of
    Material change
  • Magazine assignments can be saved
  • Interfaces to external tool databases such as Zoller, Walter TDM and Datos
