NC Machining



ANVIL EXPRESS® NC Machining highlights include -

  • Like all parts of ANVIL EXPRESS, the NC Machining modules use familiar Windows menus, dialogs and buttons, to make learning and using it as simple as possible.

  • Machining methods covered by the Base NC module include 2D Pocketing, Profiling, Turning, Engraving, and Drilling.

  • Machining methods covered by the 3 Axis NC module include Area Clearance, Plane Slice Milling, and 3D Pocketing and Profiling.

  • 5 Axis module includes programmable tilt and lead, end and swarf cutting, geometry-controlled tool vectors, and contact radius control.

  • Wire EDM module allows for two-profile parameter control, tabbing, and offset cut control.

  • Associative toolpaths update at a stroke when geometry changes are made.

  • Provision for user-defined libraries of tools, macros, relations, strategies, and more.

  • Visual cutting simulation available for all machining methods.

  • User-definable post-processors plus an extensive library of existing post-processors for many popular machine/controller combinations, which may be used as templates for similar machines.
