CAM-POST Tangential Arc Fitting
CAM-POST Tangential Arc fitting module improves part finish, significantly reduces tape size and prolongs machine tool life. Arc fitting enables users to increase the feed-rate of NC machines and improve cutting accuracy by replacing point-to-point tool paths with arcs. Since one arc represents curved surfaces more accurately than many linear points, arc fitting reduces NC tape file length by up to 90% while improving overall machining tolerances.
Tangential arc fitting takes this process a step further by ensuring that the arcs fit together so tightly that the NC machine “sees” one continuous tool path resulting precisely machined parts. Smoother tool paths also helps to extend the life of NC machines and cutting tools.
