ECam chooses ModuleWorks 2-Axis technology

ECam is a 2D CNC programming system for fast and efficient g-code generation for lathe and vertical mill applications. To improve the performance and quality of its toolpath strategies, ECam has integrated ModuleWorks software components for 2-Axis toolpath generation and cutting simulation.

The ModuleWorks 2-Axis component provides powerful, efficient and safe toolpaths for milling and drilling applications. The versatile and easy-to-use component includes a broad range of basic and advanced features for roughing, finishing, engraving, face milling and drilling operations. The ModuleWorks Cutting Simulation component delivers high accuracy verification of stock removal for mill, turn and combined mill/turn applications and offers a full range of toolpath analysis tools to enable users to quickly identify and correct any potential problems.

The 2-Axis and cutting simulation components are designed for fast and seamless integration into existing CAD/CAM software to accelerate product development and time to market.

“The ModuleWorks components have brought huge improvements to the ECam toolpath strategies, leading to longer tool life and shorter machining cycles”, explains Alessandro Cogo, Managing Director of ECam. “Fast and easy integration means ECam users benefit from the latest technology in a cost-effective 2D solution.”

“It’s great to see how our 2-Axis and cutting simulation components boost the quality and performance of ECam”, says David Plater, Technical Director at ModuleWorks. “We look forward to a continued and successful cooperation that advances the 2-Axis technology of both companies.”
