July 4 – 7, 2013, CNC Software, Inc., developers of Mastercam CAD/CAM Software, traveled to New Delhi, India to support esteemed Indian Mastercam Reseller SIM Technologies Pvt. Ltd. at the IMTOS 2013 tradeshow. India is rapidly emerging to the forefront of the global manufacturing market, and the IMTOS show served to reinforce that fact. With more than 100,000 visitors, the show was a great success, and there are many prospects and existing customers to follow up as a result of exhibiting.

Mastercam Support India

On display was recently Mastercam X7, which with its recent release has introduced many significant new capabilities, such as:

New Mastercam Mill-Turn

Mastercam’s Mill-Turn product makes machining on today’s high-powered turning centers and full-function machining centers simpler and easier than ever before. Mastercam Mill-Turn streamlines the programming process with intelligent job setups that are keyed to the exact machine in your shop. Intelligent work plane selection makes it easy to select the proper spindle and turret, and program your part with Mastercam’s proven milling and lathe toolpaths.


Renishaw Probing

Mastercam X7 integrates Renishaw’s Productivity+ for in-process gauging. This uses a measuring probe on a machine tool to determine fixture offsets, orientation, and critical dimensions. Probing eliminates the need for tool presetters, expensive fixtures, and manual settings with dial indicators. It allows for machine offsets to be automatically adjusted, even during the machining process, to further enhance the manufacturing process.


New Lathe Dynamic Rough Toolpath

The Lathe Dynamic Rough toolpath is designed for hard materials cut with button inserts. The dynamic motion allows the toolpath to cut gradually, remain engaged in the material more effectively, and use more of the surface on your insert, extending tool life and increasing the cutting speed.


Also available in Mastercam X7:

  • The new Tool Manager, providing a whole new way to create and organize your tooling.
  • Improved Backplot and Verify utilities that offer a more efficient workflow, better analysis tools, and more comprehensive toolpath support.
  • Dynamic and OptiRough toolpaths with more efficient tool motion, including enhanced cut orders and faster calculation times.
  • Multi-threading support extended to most 2D high speed toolpaths, resulting in faster toolpath processing.

Oscillate motion for Curve and Swarf 5-axis toolpaths, improving your tool life by not always machining with the same area of the tool.

We would like to thank everyone that took the time to visit the Mastercam booth at IMTOS.
