SCHOTT SYSTEME GmbH to Exhibit their Latest Advanced Machining Capabilities at METAV 2020

17-Jan-2020 -- German software developer SCHOTT SYSTEME GmbH are starting the year by introducing their latest Pictures by PC CAD/CAM software update on the METAV 2020 exhibition in Düsseldorf.

The update is an addition to their existing Pictures by PC version 3.8, and includes new functionality for both 3D and 2.5D prismatic machining.

Adding to their existing HPC (High Performance Cutting) capabilities, new toolpath algorithms written by SCHOTT SYSTEME GmbH facilitate the generation of HPC toolpaths on even more complex 3D geometry (solids, surfaces and mesh models - STL). Machinists also have more control, such as the implementation of differing 3D offset values in the XY and Z directions. This control is also added to their existing range of 3D HSC (High Speed Cutting) finishing operations such as spiral and hybrid machining.

Enhancements to 2.5D prismatic machining include spiral contouring (a continuous fluid spiral toolpath without stepped Z increments) and 2D finishing with multiple side increments (within a single operation).

For those working with plate material, a new automatic tagging routine also ensures parts remain fixed in position after milling. Typical 2.5D prismatic parts also gain from improvements to the software's existing hole and pocket recognition tools, whereby features now result in the generation of corresponding CAM operations and tooling.

The end of 2019 also saw 35 years of product continuity for SCHOTT SYSTEME GmbH, with their original Pictures by PC software first being released back in 1983. During this time, users have benefited from continued free software support without maintenance costs. This is in stark contrast to the increase in software ownership costs generally associated with CAD/CAM software.
