Auto CAM!

Reg: $450.00
SALE: 289.95

 

Designed for Cam layout!  What took 30 minutes to an hour, now only takes a few minutes.  This software has been used hundreds of times in a job shop.  

  1. Layouts are generated in a few minutes and then printed out for the cam maker with ALL information intact.  
      

  2. AutoCAM has a user-friendly interface that looks exactly like a Cam Layout Sheet!  This is not a knock-off made from Excel micro-subs, but the real thing!  
      

  3. AutoCAM was designed by an Brown & Sharpe Professional with over 30 years experience. In essence (AutoCAM is packaged with experience from Operating, Setup, Tool Design & Build, Cam Layout and Quoting)
      

  4. AutoCAM will be a delight for seasoned Cam Layout professionals as well.  This program will do all the number-crunching tasks while the designer plays around with different ideas of Operation.  It's fun!

 

Perfect for Quoting!  If you have the energy to click a mouse, then quoting will be a snap.  

  1. AutoCAM is a fast paced software takes out the 'eye-balling' when figuring out cycle-times.  
      

  2. Lets say the customer wants a bid out of 303 Se Stainless AND out of Brass.  Simply enter the Surface Feet per Minute (SFM) to generate new Spindle Speeds, and "Click,"  the new cycle times (Seconds) are generated.  
      

  3. Since AutoCAM doesn't require any knowledge of formulas or number manipulation, an individual with limited knowledge of machining can be more easily trained for quoting.  

Intelligent

AutoCAM! functions as an intelligent database.  You are required to enter the Rise and Feed of each Operation that you select.  Once this is completed, AutoCAM! will crunch out the following:

Revolutions for each tool operation

Hundreds for each non-tool operation, such as, Feed Stock, Index, etc.  
AutoCAM has built-in tables for reference to adjust index Hundreds (also Clear, Feed Stock) in relation to Seconds.  In other words, the quicker the job (Ex: Quicker then 17.5 Seconds for 2G) the more Hundreds are need for Indexing.  AutoCAM sorts this stuff out for you.

Hundreds for all cutting tools.

Sequence for operations that are not overlapped

Rise for threading lobes, such as, Tap In, Tap Out, and Thread (diehead)
AutoCAM calcs out Rises for Threading Lobes using the recommended Brown & Sharpe formulas, the industry standard. 

Features

AutoCAM! allows you to change the Hundreds that are not set as defaults.  This is convenient if you require extra Hundreds for Feed Stock (double feedouts) or Indexing.  Just change and click!

You can click Operations directly into the database from the Operation List Box.  This saves you the tedious task of typing in each word.  This method is also recommended since AutoCAM! does not recognize misspelled operations when accessing its database.

Instant Information!  After AutoCAM! displays the results, you may want to change the High Speeds, Low Speeds, Rises, Feed; to increase production.  In the old days, before AutoCAM!, you would have to recalculate your entire Cam Layout. Once again, just change and click.

Formula calculations - jam-packed with automated formulas for Cam Layout and pick-up cams. (This Added Module Pickup WIZ 1.0 REG 59.95)

Pickup WIZ Standard Features

Feature #1
Find Feed for Pickup Cam

Problem – Tool is wearing.  We suspect that the feed is incorrect.

Solution – Enter the Spindle Speed & Seconds. Then enter the Hundreds and Rise on tool lobe.  Click Pickup the Pickup WIZ Apply button and instantly get the Feed for the tool. 

Example:
The job is running in 8 Seconds at 2150 Spindle Speed.  The tool lobe (Drill) has 15 Hundreds and .321 Rise on the lead cam.

Pickup WIZ instantly calculates  = .0075 Feed per rev on the tool lobe.

With this information the Seconds can be adjusted to correct the Feed.

Problem – Reduce the feed from .0075 to .006 from the example above.

Solution – Change Spindle Speed a notch higher or reduce Seconds.
Click the Pickup WIZ Apply button and instantly adjust the Feed for your conformation.

Example:
Job is running in 8 Seconds at 2150 RPM.  The tool lobe (Drill) has 15 Hundreds and .321 rise on the lead cam.

(1.)  Adjust Spindle Speed higher to 2660 and WIZ instantly calculates the new feed.

Wiz result = .006 Feed

(2.) Adjust cycle time from 8 seconds to 10 seconds.

Wiz result = .006 Feed.

With this information the Seconds can be adjusted to correct the feed.

Feature #2
Find Hundreds for Pickup Cam

·        Problem – The Lead Cam is ready to go, but we need a front cross slide cam for a form tool.  Rise is known, but not the correct Hundreds.   We want to use as many Hundreds as possible to reduce heat, tool wear and breakage.
 
Solution – Enter Spindle Speed and Seconds. Then enter the Feed desired, and Rise on tool lobe.  Click the Pickup WIZ Apply button and instantly get the correct Hundreds for the tool. 

Example:
The job is running in 20 Seconds at 1500 Spindle Speed.  The desired Feed on the front cross slide cam is .001 with existing Rise of .251.

Enter these 4 figures above and Pickup WIZ instantly calculates the result.

Pickup Wiz Result = 50 Hundreds

Feature #3
Find Seconds for Pickup Cam with Tap

·        Problem – The Lead Cam is ready to go with cycle times to reflect feed on most critical tools. However, the job has a tapped hole (or external thread).  Incorrect cycle time or incorrect Low Spindle Speed can, and will usually destroy the tap (or chasers). 
 
Solution – Enter Spindle Speed and Seconds. Then enter the Threads Per Inch (TPI) desired, and Rise on tool lobe.  Click the Pickup WIZ Apply button and instantly get the correct Hundreds for the tool. 

Example:
We know that to get the correct Feed rates, and based on those Feed rates, the job should not run faster then 27.5 Seconds with a high Spindle Speed of 2150.   Or course we tap at a low speed of about 5 to 1, or approx 450 RPM. 
We enter this data into Pickup Wiz:

Hundreds on Lead Cam tap lobe = 8
Rise on Lead Cam tap lobe = .400
Low Spindle Speed = 450
Threads Per Inch (TPI) = 32

Pickup Wiz result = 23.7 seconds.  (Too fast)

Quick Fix:
Lower the Low Spindle Speed with a few clicks to 395

Pickup Wiz result = 27 seconds.  (Acceptable)

Feature #4
Find Surface Feet per Minute (SFM)

·        Problem – Job is running.  We suspect the job is running too slow.  The current Spindle Speed is 500 RPM for 5/8 Diameter Stainless Steel. 
 
Solution – Enter the .625 and Current Spindle Speed. 

Pickup Wiz result = 81 SFM.  (Too slow, recommended is 120 SFM)

The above answer alerts us to use the next feature of Pickup Wiz

Feature #5
Find Spindle Speed

·        Problem – Job is running.  We suspect that job is running too slow.  From using the step above, we know that the SFM is currently at 81 for 5/8 Diameter Stainless Steel. 
 
Solution – Enter the .625 and recommended SFM 120. 

Pickup Wiz result = 732 Spindle Speed.

This result shows a significant increase to improve cycle time, and we can use Pickup Wiz’s next feature.

Feature #6
Find Seconds for Pickup Cam

·        Problem – Need to find Cycle Time (Seconds).  Determine cycle time based on the job’s most critical tool lobe.   
 
Solution – Enter Spindle Speed. Then enter the Feed desired for most critical lobe, and enter the corresponding  Rise and Hundreds on tool lobe.  Click use Pickup WIZ and instantly get the correct Seconds for the job cycle time. 

Example:
Most critical lobe in the Lead Cam is for a Trepan Tool.

Spindle Speed = 1180
Max feed = .002
Hundreds on most critical tool lobe = 8
Rise on most critical tool lobe = .090

Pickup Wiz result = 28.6 Seconds, or round to 30 seconds
