Learn about the new upgrades and updates for CAMWorks 2023 from Hawk Ridge Systems.

New Probing Cycles

CAMWorks has updated its probing operations to include more options to locate the part. In 2023, users can establish a plane by probing three points. This can help to determine an accurate Z level and/or tilt in the Work Offset. 

More probing cycles were added to establish the angle of a X or Y faces relative to the Z axis planes in Milling and Rotary axis in Mill-Turn applications. The resultant value can be used to compensate the setup.  

Cavity-Focused Volumill

The Stock Recognition capability within Volumill has enabled bulk material removal on complex parts.  

In 2023, Volumill will have an option to self-limit to just the watertight cavities of a part. Volumill now allows for greater programming intent to be baked into the operation. 

Programming Multiple Parts of Differing Materials in Assembly Mode

CAMWorks can now read the feeds and speeds from different material libraries in one assembly file.  The programming intent of CAM files that were programmed separately can be combined into one file with ease, according to the company.

CAMWorks Wire Premium Integration Updates

CAMWorks Wire has added many new ways to define programming intent in the premium module.  

Using cosmetic features, users can easily assign various parameters to a program. Creating operations can now be automated by designating strategies based on color coding the faces. Those strategies can be automated by adding Decals to the faces to designate additional parameters such as Glue Stop locations. 

If you are currently a CAMWorks user or if you are interested in learning more about how these functions can assist you with enhancing your programming, contact the company for a demonstration based on your own parts.
