AlphaCAM is a versatile CAD / CAM system for CNC machines, working in a variety of industries – production engineering, sheet metal, metal fabrication, stone and woodworking industries. It allows for the creation and processing of all kinds of elements from 2D parts to complex components that require simultaneous 5-axis.
The program has several packages tailored to specific industries that have specialized types of machining operations:
– Wood Machining,
– Stone Cutting,
– Cutting (laser, plasma, water-jet)
– Cutting WEDM.
– Each module is available in several levels of functionality.
The modules have the same interface and desktop environment – a high potential to design and simple operation.
CAD functions in AlphaCAM enable the preparation of drawings for the design of the type of 2D or 3D. You can also import finished drawing / models prepared in an external CAD program.
Dynamic 3D simulation shows the course of treatment. With this feature you can find any mistakes made during the preparation of the draft to avoid errors and collisions on the machine.
AlphaCAM has several features aimed at automating the preparation of technology. With automation, you can dramatically increase the productivity of technologists.
