  • Useful information to prevent geometric or technological inconsistencies in the erosion machine.
  • Also calculated are: area, center of gravity, moment of inertia, center of thrust of simple contours and contours that make up surfaces.
  • The report can be easily saved and printed.
Gear

  • Basic parameters: number of teeth, pressure angle, module (or alternatively pitch diameter, base diameter, diameter pitch and circular pitch).
  • Parameters for the displacement of the tooth profile: Coefficient, Tooth thickness on pitch diameter, Distance between N teeth, Measure with pin. Rounding at the head and foot. Diameter at the head and foot.
CAD2D
  • Module for contour design.
  • Creation of elementary geometric figures: points, lines, circles, rectangles, arcs, ellipses.
  • Optimization of views, Orthogonal views, Zoom, Pan, Spatial rotation.
  • Duplication, rotation, scale, mirror.
  • Attachment points.
  • Basic tools for drawing modification: Cut, Divide, Lengthen, Round.
  • Advanced tools for editing the drawing: Equidistant, Intersection, Projection.
  • Dimensioning and printing.
WireSim
  • Module for the volumetric visualization of erosion with control of inter-cuts and technological offset.
  • Execution of the erosion in continuous mode (with speed regulation) or in single block mode.
  • Ability to select the block from NC code and display it on the volume or vice versa select it on the volume to have it automatically highlighted in the NC code.
  • Orthogonal and isometric views, view rotation, zoom.
  • Buttons to show / hide threading points, positioning, thread trimming, pass offset.
  • Measurement of the offsets, angles, lengths, heights of the piece to be eroded.
SurfaceSection
  • Module to calculates a new surface from the section of an existing one.
  • The plans for sections can be freely defined even beyond the limits of the original surface.
  • Used in the drawing and extrusion fields
NoCore
  • Module that, given any plane profile, automatically calculates the tool path for the total removal of material in order to avoid having to manage the slug.
  • Management of the stock for the finishing passes.
  • Possibility of avoiding finishing passes.
CAD3D
  • The 3D CAD software allows you to import and visualize the solid piece to be sink or die eroded.
TaperedHoles
