ModuleWorks is a leading provider of CAD/CAM components, providing 3 - 5 Axis machining and simulation technology as used by many of the leading CAM systems and specialist manufacturing companies.
ModuleWorks is at the forefront of 5-Axis simultaneous technology, providing the 5-Axis and simulation technology that powers many of the popular CAM systems available today.
ModuleWorks provides a component for 3-Axis machining. The 3-Axis machining componentuses mesh (or triangle) to generate accurate gouge free tool-paths on 3D components.
ModuleWorks offers a complete solution for companies wishing to integrate 5-Axis machiningwith their CAM software products including a powerful and flexible range of tool-path generation strategies and post-processing tools. Typical applications include aerospace wing components, automotive port machining, impellers, turbine blades, cutting tools and trimming / de-flashing. Usually considered the domain of metal cutting, 5-Axis machining is also used with wood, stone and plastics.
ModuleWorks provides a complete component solution for Simulation wwith high performance CNC Simulation and CNC Verification. The CAM Simulation componentsupports Milling, Turning and Mill/Turn applications with full machine simulation, stock removal verification and tool-path analysis. Simulation will identify problem areas such as potential collisions, gouges or over travel and allow correction prior to NC Code generation. The Simulation component can add significant productivity improvements to your products and can be quickly implemented.
ModuleWorks provide full kinematic machine simulation with comprehensive collision and axis limits checking. A full Kinematic machine builder supports Mills, Lathes, Mill/Turn, Robots and CMM machines with support for an unlimited number of axes.
Simulation also offers a full range of tool-path analysis tools for many critical aspects of toolpath behaviour such as segment length/type, feedrate and height allowing tool-paths to be refined for optimum finish and quality. Simulation tools are independent of our tool-path generation components and can be used with any tool-paths or back-plot NC code.
