MILL-Expert

Automation par excellence:

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

Your advantage:

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

Multi-page 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.

Multi-unit processing

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

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

Roughing strategies

High Speed Roughing Strategy

  • Residual material machining
  • Optimised face milling
  • Plunge roughing
  • Pocket milling, open or closed with any number of islands
  • Plunge strategies spiral, with ramp or along the geometry
  • Calculation of circumferential taper, head and bottom radius
    and circumferential profile geometry on any contours

  • Contour finishing with optimised approach/departure, with or without radius correction
  • Overlapping during infeed and outfeed
  • Calculation of circumferential taper, top and bottom radius or any profile
  • Automatic residual stock machining
  • Chamfer milling
  • Milling with projection onto a sphere, cylinder or inclined plane
  • Freehand milling and positioning
  • Rule surface milling
  • Engraving of any fonts (True-Type Fonts) linear, circular, raised or recessed, incl. sharpening of corners
