CAM interface

Simple CAD/CAM integration thanks to TDM interfaces for CAM and simulation systems

What advantages do the interfaces to CAM and simulation systems offer you for your production processes? They integrate the TDM data directly into these systems. Tool assembly data, 2D tool graphics and 3D tool models are therefore available for further processing in the systems. Verified planning increases productivity by 30%.

Creating and integrating into existing CAM and simulation systems made easy

Create your tools with several technology data records. Tools are selected according to various criteria. With the interface to the various CAM and simulation systems, you load the tools' data records directly into the CAM environment. There, you can use the data to generate your NC programs with realistic, simulation-ready 3D tool graphics. Make it easier for yourself by using tool data in your planning processes.

TDM – CAD/CAM integrations: The functions speak for themselves

  • The integration offers direct access to the TDM tool database in the CAM system
  • The user can select tools individually, either by tool class/group, by machining operation in TDM or with the CAM system search
  • CAD/CAM integration offers direct access to geometry data, collision data and technology values
  • The interfaces for the CAM systems transfer the tools planned in the NC program back, whereby the re-transfer takes place in the form of tool lists to TDM (basis for tool provision)
  • The interfaces for the simulation systems transfer the TDM tool lists
  • The NC program contains tool lists, with which you can, for example, program part families with standardized tools for optimized setup

Integrating TDM with various CAD/CAM interfaces

For example, TDM successfully supports users of the Edgecam, Mastercam, SolidCAM and Vericut interfaces. How? With the CAM and CAD interface modules for the online transfer of tool data and graphics.

The basis: CAM interface

The interfaces for TDM support your continuous CAM process with tool data from the TDM database. The software therefore provides company-specific tool expertise in the CAM and simulation process phases.

Impressive advantages of the CAD/CAM integration

Save time. Quick tool selection and up-to-date, central tool data significantly minimize effort. This also makes NC programming more efficient.

Reliable feeds & speeds reduce error rates in NC programming and optimize processes.

You increase your cost savings in tool preparation through available tool lists for each NC program/order.

Examples of CAM interfaces with TDM

All interfaces offer the advantage of efficient data maintenance through the central database. And this even includes access to real tool data from the CAM environment. The user can work in their familiar software environment. Moreover, integration with TDM increases process reliability and productivity for all interfaces. Below are some successful examples:

Edgecam

  • The interface transfers tool and cutting data from TDM to the Edgecam Toolstore
  • It also provides STEP graphics for collision control and uses multilevel tools
  • The user can re-transfer the tools used for the NC program from Edgecam to TDM in the form of tool lists

Mastercam and SolidCAM

  • The interface quickly searches for the required tools via the TDM Tool Manager plug-in
  • The user can import tools directly from the TDM database into Mastercam or Solidcam
  • The user can re-transfer the tools used for the NC program from Mastercam or Solidcam to TDM in the form of tool lists

Vericut

  • The NC programmer is supported by direct access to the TDM database
  • The interface simply transfers the selected tool list or individual tools from a TDM tool list from Vericut via the search panel
  • The user has direct access to geometry data, and importing into the Vericut simulation environment is simple
