3D Cad Cam
ESTERLE Mold & Machine Company employs the latest 3D CAD CAM technology available, including SolidWorks 2016. SolidWorks offers specific advantages in engineering, design, drafting,
modeling, and machining functionality. By using this globally successful CAM solution, ESTERLE offers completely integrated design and machining capabilities, ensuring that even the
most complex parts with intricate components are efficiently engineered and quickly and accurately produced.
Interference Checks with SolidWorks
SolidWorks is the backbone of 3D CAD CAM technology, having been a major player in the software industry since 1993. Over two million engineers and designers use SolidWorks, making it
the industry standard tool in 3D modeling and visualization. The ability to quickly and easily render 3D models of any engineered component and animate them is what sets SolidWorks
apart from its competition. SolidWorks also allows the engineers and designers at ESTERLE to perform interference checks to ensure that designs can be assembled before a single part
goes into production.
One Cam Software for Everything
With hyperMILL® for SolidWorks, both simple and complex geometries can be programmed efficiently. Work pieces can be completely machined in a single setup thanks to the broad range
of machining strategies. The advantages: continuous and more efficient processes, reduced processing times and higher reliability.
In addition, hyperMILL® offers several options for automated programming, reducing machine cycle times and optimizing processes. Examples of this include sophisticated feature and
macro technology, automated functions such as mirroring and transforming, functions that minimize auxiliary processing times such as job linking or production mode, and fully
automated collision checking and avoidance.
Easy, time-saving programming with automated functions such as transformation and mirroring
Intelligent functions such as job linking or production mode reduce auxiliary processing times
Automatic indexing for 5axis machining that saves time and is easier on the machine
Multiple 5axis strategies for cavity and surface machining
Fully automated collision checking and avoidance for the highest process reliability
Functions for HSC machining and high-performance roughing
2D, 3D, HSC, 5-axis and mill turn strategies combined in a single interface
