PCamDieSink
PCamDieSInk is an industry-leading die-sinking CAD / CAM programming system developed specifically for the precision engineering, tool making, injection molding, blanking and extrusion industries.
Available in the following versions:
  • PCamDS Std
  • PCamDS Adv
The PCamDS system allows the programming of any die-sinking erosion machine starting directly from the CAD design of the mold. Once the electrodes have been extracted, the machine programming is direct.
  • Windows graphical user interface.
  • 3D CAD import.
  • Technological strategies, grouping, priorities.
  • Sinking templates.
  • Machine and Post Processors.
  • Send the program to the online machine.
  • Recognition of features from solid models.
  • Full Solid 3D simulation.
  • Selection of add-on modules.
  • Association with measuring machines, the offsets detected during the measurement phase thus allowing safe processing without human errors with the reduction of high presetting times of die sink machines.
PCamDS Std
Programming software for any die-sinking machine via graphical interface.
The program includes:
  • Insertion of workpiece and its dimensions.
  • Insertion of processes, consisting of vectors, positioning and quality target.
  • Insertion of roughing electrodes, finishers electrodes including passes and orbits.
  • Insertion of workpiece and electrode corrections.
Full scalability towards the PCamDS Adv version.
PCamDS Adv
Programming software for any die-sinking machine via graphical interface.
The program includes:

  • Basic Diesink Programming PCamDS Std.

  • 3D Import module.
    • To acquire directly from the geometry the number of impression, the X coordinates; Y; Z and C electrode positioning and the erosion vector: vertical, lateral, sub-square and injection.
  • Electrode Definition Module.
    • To add technological information quickly and without errors: number and type of electrodes per impression, electrode under-measurement, electrode projected surface.
  • Database Access Module.
    • To save electrodes and parts in the database, in order to make them available for presetting.
    DieSinkSim
    • Anti collision detection. Every electrode solid is checked not to collide with the solid of the piece during the position and vector geometrical mouvement. It is also displayed the correct electrode machining sequence.
    Electrodes Definition
    • Module to automatically detect the data necessary for programming plunging machines from 3D geometry.
    • The automatically acquired data are:
      • Multi-cavity machining.
      • Multielectrodes.
      • Electrode positioning coordinates: X, Y, Z and C
      • Vertical, lateral, undercut and injection vectors.
      • Angle C of erosion.
      • Automatic calculation (or manual management) of the projected surface.
      • Workpiece size and electrodes.
      • Creation and management of quality milestone templates including:
        • Type of electrode: roughing, semi-finishing and finishing.
        • Number of electrodes per family.
        • Submeasure.
      • Full integration with PCam Database Access Module
      • Selection of erosion parameters in the PCamPPS technology database for individual electrode families or a group of electrode families.
