BobCAD-CAM to Show New 5 Axis CNC Machine Technology at IMTS 2012

Manufacturing CAD/CAM software company BobCAD-CAM will show its new 5 Axis cnc software module at the IMTS show at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL September 10-15, 2012. Since the mid 1980's BobCAD-CAM has experienced steady growth as a developer and supplier of PC-based CNC programming software for CNC shops requiring technology for Milling, Turning, Wire EDM, Waterjets, Routers and more. "Over the past 25 years we have seen a large volume of change in CNC machine technology and automation and are proud to have played a major roll in developing CAD/CAM software for manufacturers," commented Mr. Chris Corbell, BobCAD-CAM VP Marketing.

The latest BobCAD-CAM software provides CAD design, CAM toolpath and G-Code programming for 2, 3 and 4th axis part types. The latest announcement indicates that their technical staff will be demonstrating the new 5 Axis machining module at the show. "With 5 Axis CNC machines becoming more popular as they have been over the past 10 years, we are very excited to have a powerful solution for 5 Axis machine programmers to take advantage of," said Greg Myers, the BobCAD-CAM Development Director. At the show, attendees will be able to see a wide range of proven 5 Axis machine strategies that include SWARF machining, 5 Axis contour machining, Flowline cutting, Multi-pass roughing and multi-surface finishing toolpaths that are all developed to provide flexibility and control in 5 Axis CNC Machining.

This year BobCAD-CAM will be demonstrating its latest CAD/CAM technology for CNC machining and part programming which includes CAD/CAM for:

  • 2, 3, 4 and NEW 5 Axis Milling
  • CNC Turning
  • CNC Routing, WaterJet, Laser and Burning
  • Artistic CAD/CAM
  • Part Nesting & Sheet Optimizing

You will be able to see new roughing and finishing toolpaths recently added to the core CAD/CAM software and learn how they relate to reducing cycle times, producing quality finished parts and how easy it is to correctly incorporate CAD/CAM into your shops productivity so that you get the best possible ROI. Stay connected to what BobCAD-CAM is doing for manufacturing and meet the staff.

BobCAD-CAM will also be at the NIMS Student Skills Center to meet students and educators from all over the world and introduce them to the NEW Manufacturers of The Future program that fully supports manufacturing education. Exhibits inside the 2012 Student Skills Center will include hands-on activities, videos, demonstrations and simulations, as well as interactive, engaging activities resulting in small prizes for correct answers. As in 2008 and 2010, the Student Skills Center will feature a daily raffle for various exhibitor-provided prizes, career profiles, and a resume-drop box. If you are a student or teacher, don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the Manufacturers of The Future and special “Work Ready” programs that are designed to support your students and your schools! The NIMS Student Skills Center will be open Monday, September 10 – Saturday, September 15 from 9am until 2pm. Attendees must check-in, attend the short Orientation Program, and visit the Skills Center exhibitors during these hours.
