Function of the support bars

To prevent the cut-out parts from falling out of the sheet, you can leave several support bars on their contours. After cutting, the support bars are cut and the pieces are removed from the sheet.
SprutCAM PDM has the following modes for detecting support bars:

  • machining without support bars;
  • a definite number of support bars is set, hence we get an even number of support bars for all the curves;
  • number of support bars for each curve is variable and depends on its length;
  • number of support bars for each curve is variable and depends on its surface area.

Automatic schemes for angle passing

In order to avoid the bad angle cutting of the part, the system has several methods of forming of tool path in the angles. The passing of the angles can be set automatically or manually, depending on the angle.

Contour cutting sequence optimization according to the lengths of the passes, taking into consideration the inner contours

The contour cutting sequence is determined automatically, taking into consideration the inner contours. This has to be done in order to avoid the untimely cutting out of a part with uncut parts inside. Besides that, the system provides the optimization of the machining sequence taking into account the length of the passes between parts.

Automatic detection of the optimal approach points to the workpiece contour with a simultaneous control of the approaching and withdrawal of the cut of the neighbouring parts

The system has an automatic creation of the positions for the tool penetration, depending on the approach chosen, avoiding a cutting of the neighbouring parts.

Avoiding passes over already machined zones

Often, the machined piece will bend because of the thermo treatment and it can break when the cutter head is moved above it. In order to avoid such situations, the passes between cutting in points can be done above the unmachined zones of the sheet. When the function is turned off, the passes will be made following the shortest distance between the points. When the function is turned on, the passes are made in such a way, that the cutter head avoided passing above the already cut out contours.

3D cutting simulation

The NC code is checked in the machining simulation mode. The cutting simulation assures visual control of the quality of the NC code.
