Machining STRATEGIST is a powerful 3D CAM product that generates optimum roughing and finishing CNC toolpaths from the complex shapes generated by all major 3D modelling systems. With demands for ever-shorter lead times and improved quality, High Speed Machining (HSM) is now common place in many mold, tool and die shops both in the CAD/CAM office and on the shop-floor to machine hard materials with increased feed rates.
Machining STRATEGIST is a technological leader in this area with many unique machining strategies for generating world-class machining programs. At the same time, many of these strategies can improve the productivity of older CNC machines with dramatically reduced air cutting time and programs with smooth arcs which help to maintain continuous machine tool motion.
Installed in a CAD/CAM office or on the shop-floor, Machining STRATEGIST can take your machining capabilities to new levels and productivity to new heights.
Features at a glance:
Smooth motion control machining for all toolpaths
Tooling libraries, incorporating toolholders
Toolholder gouge protection
Taper cutter support
3+2 axis machining
Rest machining, including rest roughing and transversal rest finishing
Flat surface machining
Steep/shallow machining option for all 3D toolpaths
Variable stock-allowance to steep and shallow areas

Machining STRATEGIST has been developed to be very easy to learn and use and training is typically only one to two days in total. The software has context sensitive menus and dialog boxes and is intuitive to drive, while many parameters are calculated automatically or remembered to minimize operator input. Operations are driven from a browser-like tree structure that develops to show the history of the job.
