CONTRIBUTIONS REGARDING THE USE OF A CAM SOFTWARE SOLUTION IN MULTI-AXES MACHINING
Manufacturing processes are nowadays unfolded on numerically controlled machine-tools using CAD/CAM techniques. Simulations modules are available in any commercially available CAM software package The 2.5D and 3D milling processes require only the simulation of the relative movements between the tool and the part. However, for multi-axe machining, for an accurate simulation, it is necessary to use an geometric and kinematic model of the machine-tool. The paper presents the process of building such a mode for a five-axis machining center.Key words: CAM, CNC, milling, geometric and kinematic model, multi-axes machining, simulation
